While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    QUICK NEWS, September 15: SOCALEDISON, SOLARCITY TO STUDY AGGREGATED NEW ENERGY; NEW ENERGY MARCHING ON THE SOUTH; WYOMING WIND HELD BACK BY LACK OF LINES

    SOCALEDISON, SOLARCITY TO STUDY AGGREGATED NEW ENERGY SolarCity launches smart home pilot project in California

    John Parnell, 11 September 2015 PV Tech

    Southern California Edison (SCE), one of the state’s dominant investor owned utilities, will partner with SolarCity, the leading U.S. residential solar installer, and SunSpec Alliance, the solar industry’s interoperability standards organization, on a 50 home aggregated distributed energy resources (DERs) pilot project in SCE territory. The objective of the study is to determine the degree to which aggregated DERs can offer reliability benefits to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO)-run electricity market. click here for more

    NEW ENERGY MARCHING ON THE SOUTH Alabama Power parent to buy second wind farm

    Byron E. Small, September 9, 2015 Birmingham Business Journal

    Southern Power, the unregulated subsidiary of Southeastern electric utility powerhouse Southern Company, will add 151 MW more Oklahoma wind energy to its portfolio with its purchase of the Apex Clean Energy-developed Grant Wind project. This purchase continues Southern Company utilities’ turn toward renewables. Earlier this year, Southern Power announced its purchase of the Apex Clean Energy-developed 299 MW Kay Wind facility in Oklahoma. The Grant Wind project acquisition brings Southern Power’s renewables capacity and pipeline to over 1,100 MW, including seven solar projects in partnership with Turner Renewable Energy and one solar project in partnership with First Solar. Southern Company subsidiary Alabama Power recently won Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) approval for the procurement of up to 500 MW of renewables and currently gets 404 MW of wind power from two Oklahoma wind projects. Southern Company subsidiary Gulf Power recently purchased 180 MW from Oklahoma’s Kingfisher Wind project and has proposed 120 MW of solar development in partnership with the Air Force and Navy. Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power has a 20 year PPA for 250 MW from Oklahoma’s Blue Canyon II and Blue Canyon VI wind projects and recently announced it would enter the rooftop solar business through an unregulated subsidiary. click here for more

    WYOMING WIND HELD BACK BY LACK OF LINES Wind power, booming nationally, grinds to a halt in Wyoming

    Benjamin Storrow, September 5, 2015 Casper Star Tribune

    The installed price of new wind in the U.S. is now competitive with new coal and new natural gas installations, the wind industry has built about one-third of all new U.S. generation capacity since 2007, and the DOE forecasts it can be 20% of the U.S. power mix by 2020, but Wyoming has added no new capacity since 2010. Experts say Wyoming, one of the most wind-rich states, remains largely undeveloped because regulatory issues are unsettled and transmission projects that could deliver wind-generated electricity to power-hungry load centers continue to face permitting and financing obstacles. The unsubsidized levelized cost of wind energy (LCOE) is now estimated by Lazard at $37 per MWh to $81 per MWh, while coal’s LCOE comes in at $66 per MWh to $151 per MWh and the LCOE of natural gas is at $61 per MWh to $81 per MWh. click here for more
