CEA Releases 2018 Solar Energy Report; Finds Incentives Contributed Significantly to Solar Power Expansion
Report Highlights Effects of Incentive Programs on Solar Market and Future Reexamination of Solar Policies
Proposed action to bail out nuclear, coal plants is misguided, would hurt consumers
We conclude that a National Energy Experts Committee (NEEC) should be established under ministry of energy consisting of Energy experts from Academia, Industry, Business, Associations/NGOs and International Experts.
We anticipate that next year, there will be a break from the steady industry growth experienced during the past decade. It's unfortunate because solar has been a bright spot with job and economic growth year after year.
Some analysts have predicted that renewables will make up the greatest part of the nation's energy portfolio in spite of any policies that are implemented.
Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.
Keith Schneider for The Los Angeles Times: The trade commission's decision will be transmitted to President Trump on Nov. 13. Whatever the outcome, the tariff case has riven the $30-billion U.S. solar sector.
Nichola Groom for Reuters: The 10 fastest-growing U.S. solar markets between the second quarters of 2016 and 2017 were Western, Midwestern or Southern states that voted for Trump.
The solar sector is reeling from confusion, and stock prices are reeling right along with it.
Jess Shankleman for Bloomberg Technology: The European Union may create 716,000 jobs with a target for member states to produce 35 percent of their energy from renewables within 12 years.
Reuters: "The cost of solar panels and batteries has fallen dramatically over the past few years, and this first subsidy-free development at Clayhill is a significant moment for clean energy in the UK," Claire Perry, minister for Climate Change and Industry said.
The ITC's decision is disappointing for nearly 9,000 U.S. solar companies and the 260,000 Americans they employ. Foreign-owned companies that brought business failures on themselves are attempting to exploit American trade laws to gain a bailout for their bad investments.
Julian Spector for GTM: Solar industry heavyweights threw a lot of punches on the opening day of Solar Power International.
Arthur Neslen for The Guardian: EU duties on Chinese solar modules are set to rise 30% above market levels signalling 'huge negative effects' for businesses
Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Wind and solar energy helped avoid between 3,000 and 12,700 premature deaths in the US between 2007 and 2015.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
