After years of concerted effort to advance climate and clean energy policies, the United States has started on the path to a low-carbon economy. Several developments have fundamentally shifted the nation’s energy outlook: falling technology costs; forward-leaning policies enacted by federal, state, local, and tribal governments; investments in new infrastructure; advances in energy efficiency and renewable energy research and development; and a newly minted international agreement to tackle climate change.

Top 5 Things to Look For in a Sustainable Energy Partner

Article | March 12, 2020

Organizations worldwide are prioritizing renewable energy as a path to achieving increasingly ambitious sustainability goals. Many organizations are committing to 100 percent sourced renewable energy through initiatives like RE100. When sustainability goals are publicized, the stakes for achievement are high. Increasingly, consumers and stakeholders want details about environmental impacts. Setting sustainability targets coincides with the rapid evolution of conventional energy supply. However, the complexity of renewables and their potential impact on business operations remain a primary concern. Successfully navigating this new landscape calls for more than just a power supplier; an energy partner who understands your needs and commitments is essential.

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

Article | February 24, 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).

2020 Trends That Will Make Waves In The Energy Industry

Article | February 10, 2020

In the renewable world, energy is generated by weather and the amount of energy that can be produced depends on the current conditions. Energy storage can ensure a power supply is maintained when weather conditions are not optimal for generating energy. While energy storage products have already been introduced to all levels of the market there are several technology hurdles to overcome before energy storage will reach maximum potential. We believe there will be great advancements in 2020 on:

Coronavirus Pandemic Impacting Solar, Storage and other Energy Sectors

Article | March 17, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted just about every sector of the economy, and that now includes the energy sector, according to analysts and media reports. Beyond just constricting demand, the virus had begun to undermine energy-related supply chains; the solar, utility storage and electric vehicle industries may be particularly hard hit, according to experts. The pandemic likewise threatens to divert regulatory attention from ordinarily pressing energy matters to other more urgent issues. Energy regulators in Texas and elsewhere, for instance, have ordered or encouraged utilities to suspend nonpayment disconnections because of the crisis.
