Nuclear Power Giant Buys Solar Firm

By MATTHEW L. WALD

 

Getting the message :

 

 

China Racing Ahead of U.S. in the Drive to Go Solar   

 

 

 

 

And here :

Over the past few weeks, some 1,300 megawatts’ worth of distributed solar deals and initiatives have been announced or approved. At peak output, that is the equivalent of a big nuclear power plant.

Two weeks ago in California, regulators authorized the utility Southern California Edison’s program to install 500 megawatts of solar on commercial rooftops. A few days later, they recommended that Pacific Gas and Electric, the dominant utility in Northern California, be given the green light for its own 500-megawatt

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District said in January that it took only a week to sell out its 100-megawatt solar program,

And last week, the New York Power Authority announced a program to install 100 megawatts of solar arrays around the state.

Pacific Gas and Electric is following that strategy. On Monday, the utility filed a request that regulators approve a 48-megawatt contract with Eurus Energy America.

 

California regulators on Thursday went where no regulators have gone before — approving a utility contract for the nation’s first space-based solar power plant.

 

PORTLAND, Ore. (Clean Edge) -- PG&E((PCG)PG&E) signed a solar power contract for California, increasing the amount of renewable energy serving the northern and central regions of the state.

This weeks good news, and much more to come !
