    QUICK NEWS, July 14: INVESTORS’ TAKE ON COMMUNITY SOLAR; AMAZON BUYS BIG WIND; HIP-HOP ARTIST TAKES ON CLIMATE CHANGE

    INVESTORS’ TAKE ON COMMUNITY SOLAR Solar Energy for the Poor: How Obama Plans to Change Energy; Community solar gardens could be big business if the Obama administration gets its way.M

    Travis Holum, July 12, 2015 (Motley Fool)

    “…[E]nergy from the sun has been reserved mostly for wealthy homeowners and is out of reach for millions of lower-income Americans…[H]ouseholds in the top 60% of income in the U.S. account for 95% of all residential solar installations…[L]ower-income Americans often rent instead of own a home that could install solar…[That leaves over 40% of households] out of the market…[But] the White House proposed a number of measures to ramp up what's called community solar projects…making it possible for lower-income people to participate in the solar industry…Solar is a booming business nationwide, but this could bring an entirely new market into the fold…[Investors take advantage] by owning developers that will build community solar…[SolarCity is one of the largest publicly owned] participants…[C]ommunity solar gardens should come with lower default risk because the utility is essentially the intermediary…” click here for more

    AMAZON BUYS BIG WIND Amazon backs NC’s 1st large-scale wind farm

    John Murawski, July 13, 2015 (The News & Observer)

    Iberdrola Renewables is breaking ground on the 208 MW Amazon Wind Farm U.S. East installation in North Carolina, the first in the state and the first large scale wind energy development to go into construction across the nine states of the Southeast. The output of the $400 million, 104 turbine project, estimated to be enough to power 60,000 homes, has been contracted for by Amazon Web Services and is expected to go online by the end of 2016. It is expected to provide 250 construction jobs and 10 full time jobs…Resource maps released earlier this year by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory showed the impact of turbine technology on the viability of wind in the Southeast…Today’s turbines, with 110 meter hub heights, show some power but turbine manufacturers’ plans for wind technology in the coming 5 years to 10 years, with hub heights going to 140 meters, are expected to provide a 35% or higher capacity factor in the Southeast. click here for more

    HIP-HOP ARTIST TAKES ON CLIMATE CHANGE Meet the Teenage Indigenous Hip-Hop Artist Taking on Climate Change; Rolling Stone recently sat down with Xiuhtezcatl Martinez after his powerful speech at the United Nations

    Coco McPherson, July 13, 2015 (Rolling Stone)

    “…At the U.N.'s high-level event on climate change, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon criticized what he called the snail's pace of [negotiations, and] Anote Tong, the president of Kiribati, delivered a mournful report on the massive relocation of his drowning island nation…[And then, dressed in a donated suit, with dark hair skimming his waist, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, the youth director of Earth Guardians, issued a brief prayer in both Spanish and the Nahuatl language…[and] began an extemporaneous speech on the folly of climate dithering…When he finished just over nine minutes later, climate negotiators and representatives from nearly 200 countries had seen the face of America's next-generation environmental movement: a 15-year-old trilingual Indigenous hip-hop artist from Boulder who sits on Obama's youth council and who's already organized youth crews on six continents…[who told Rolling Stone we don't have to all stop using fossil fuels entirely and go live in the woods…It's about understanding — seeing — that the way we're interacting with the world is destroying the planet…” click here for more
