Solar = 100% Of New Power Capacity In March, Renewables = 82% In Q1

Editor’s note: I write about solar and wind power obsessively, almost every day. Still, FERC’s recent numbers came as a bit of a surprise to me. Over 28% of new US power capacity in Q1 was from large-scale solar installations (small- and medium-scale installations would actually boost solar’s percentage of the pie considerably, but they’re harder to track and count). Wind power accounted for nearly 51% of new power capacity (and this is just after … Read More

5,200 Public EV Charging Stations, 58 Hydrogen Fueling Stations

Reposted from EV Obsession: We all have our own favorites when it comes to clean cars of the future. Since I am writing on this site, I think you can tell what mine is. However, there are of course others who think that hydrogen-powered cars own the future. I remember seeing an ad (I think from Ford) in a major magazine about 10 years ago that was about the beautiful fact that hydrogen-powered cars didn’t … Read More

NJ May Start Funding Renewable Energy Energy Storage

The state of New Jersey may start funding renewable energy storage projects. This comes at the same time that the state is cutting renewable energy funding down to $7.5 million for 2014 for solar, biomass, hydroelectric, and onshore wind power. This appears to be more of a shift of funding to help accommodate the more efficient use of solar and wind power. New Jersey will be able to get more out of their existing wind … Read More

Americans Are Slowly Reprioritising Their Environmental Concern

As has been made abundantly clear here on CleanTechnica, I love Gallup polls.In fact, it can probably be said that I love all polls. I find the information they impart to be utterly fascinating, especially as I have been covering certain polls for several years in a row, therefore allowing me a birds-eye view of specific trends. One such trend has been the level of concern Americans have for global warming, as depicted in Gallup’s yearly …Read More

How To Maintain And Clean Rooftop Solar? Don’t!

One question I’m continuously being asked is, “Ronald, what’s the best way to clean and maintain rooftop solar?” As a result, I’ve resolved to never again teach my parrot to say stupid sentences. But if you were to ask me this question, my answer would be that the best way to clean and maintain your solar power system is not to. This is because, unless your situation is unusual, it is a waste of time, …Read More
