2018 will likely be remembered as the tipping point for the U.S. offshore wind industry. Just eight years ago, there were few plans to develop offshore wind power here in the U.S. This was puzzling, since Europe was already well into the development of its wind farms. But what a difference a few years made Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Virginia, New Jersey and other states made major strides and commitments regarding offshore wind power in 2018. Together, the U.S. offshore wind project pipeline is on a path to 10 gigawatts (GW) by 2030.

What is community solar and is it better than installing solar panels on your home?

Article | March 3, 2020

The U.S. reached a monumental 2 million solar installations in 2019. As more people look to save money through solar energy, many different options for doing so are becoming available. The U.S. Department of Energy defines community solar as “a solar-electric system that… provides power and/or financial benefit to… multiple community members.” These voluntary programs allow community residents to enjoy the perks of solar power without the large initial investment. The solar panels and related equipment are set up in a central location, so residents don’t need to buy and install equipment on their personal properties. The power produced by these projects is then shared by a community, and the hardware is either owned by the community itself or by a third party (i.e. Jaton’s community solar projects in California).

Why Renewable Energy is Important

Article | March 3, 2020

Renewable energy is here to stay. It’s becoming a much larger part of the United States’ total energy production, and it supports a more diverse energy network to give customers control over how their energy is produced. However, the importance behind this relatively new way to produce energy doesn’t stop there. Below are some of the most impactful areas renewable energy supports, specifically our infrastructure, economy, and environment, and how City Electric Supply is expanding into this growing market.

Solar energy can help tackle climate change

Article | March 3, 2020

Homeowners, commercial and industrial businesses have started choosing solar energy over conventional sources of energy in India. The explosive adoption is a result of affordable solar modules, Government schemes and policies that are accelerating the growth of renewable energy. Solar energy reduces the dependence and reliance on fossil fuels. Besides burning of fossil fuels for energy production has been one of the biggest culprits contributing to climate change. And, we have been doing it not just for years or decades but for centuries. Today, we have numerous environmental challenges that are directly influenced by human activity.
