    QUICK NEWS, August 28: NUKE PLANTS IN CA GET 4X THE FED MONEY AS SOLAR; MORE NEW WIND THAN COAL FOR TX; SOLAR MICROELECTRONICS MRKT TO QUADRUPLE

    NUKE PLANTS IN CA GET 4X THE FED MONEY AS SOLAR New Report Finds California Nuclear Energy Has Received $8.2 Billion in Federal Subsidies; DBL Investors examines rationale for subsidizing mature, declining energy sources

    August. 26, 2013 (PRNewswire)

    “…[ Ask Saint Onofrio: Finding What Has Been Lost in A Tale of Two Energy Sources from DBL Investors reveals] that the California nuclear industry has received$8.21 billion in federal subsidies over the last 50 years…[which is] four times more federal support than distributed solar over a period six times as long…The report concludes that Californians should ask…what the rationale is for subsidizing mature and declining energy sources…while continuing to limit incentives for new, clean energy…” click here for more

    MORE NEW WIND THAN COAL FOR TX ERCOT approves 970 MW of coal for operations, signs 5 wind projects for interconnection

    Adnan Munawar, August 22, 2013 (SNL)

    “Electric Reliability Council of Texas, Inc., signed more than 1,100 MW of wind capacity for interconnection in July and registered 970 MW of coal generation for commercial operations…Total installed wind capacity was reported as 10,570 MW by the resource owners through the registration process…The total installed wind capacity in ERCOT is projected to reach 11,354 MW by the end of 2013…ERCOT had 42,872 MW of generation requests as of July 31…Generation requests for natural gas projects totaled 19,253 MW…while generation requests for wind projects [was] 21,160 MW…Generation requests for coal and solar projects were 240 MW and 1,305, respectively…Storage generation requests [was] 914 MW.” click here for more

    SOLAR MICROELECTRONICS MRKT TO QUADRUPLE Solar Microinverter Shipments to Quadruple and Reach 2.1 Gigawatts in 2017

    26 August 2013 (IHS, Inc.)

    “The global market for microinverters will expand by a factor of four from 2013 through 2017 as microinverters are adopted in greater numbers outside the United States while new markets also rush to take advantage of the devices’ improved efficiency and features compared to conventional inverters…Photovoltaic (PV) microinverter shipments worldwide are set to increase to 2.1 gigawatts (GW) in 2017, up from around 500 megawatts (MW) in 2013, according to a new report…from HIS…Shipments during the period are forecast to rise fourfold, expanding at a 306-percent rate…Microinverters are devices that convert direct current (DC) electricity from a single solar module into alternating current (AC). Although they are more costly than conventional inverters, microinverters can increase the energy harvest of a system compared to conventional string or central inverter devices…” click here for more
