    QUICK NEWS, February 10: OBAMA CLIMATE PLAN STAYED BY SUPREME COURT; THE POWER OF PLAINS WIND; THE THOUSANDS OF JOBS IN SOLAR’S BOOM

    OBAMA CLIMATE PLAN STAYED BY SUPREME COURT Supreme Court puts Clean Power Plan on hold

    Davide Savinje and Krysti Shallenberger, February 9, 2016 (Utility Dive)

    “…[A 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court ruling] ordered the Obama administration to hold off on any efforts to implement the Clean Power Plan (CPP) until legal challenges to the regulation have played out…The ruling came after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied a request to stay the federal carbon regulations in January. A coalition of 29 states and state agencies led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey then appealed to the Supreme Court to stay implementation of…[the regulatory package targeting] a 32% reduction in carbon emissions from the power sector nationwide by 2030…[It] will be put on hold until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit reviews the plan and any subsequent Supreme Court appeals are over. A hearing at the D.C. Circuit is set for June 2, 2016…The ruling is a big win for the opponents to the…[policy] widely considered the cornerstone of Obama's environmental legacy…” click here for more

    THE POWER OF PLAINS WIND Tapping the Power of the Great Plains to Light Up Faraway Cities

    Brian Eckhouse and Joe Ryan, February 9, 2016 (Bloomberg News)

    “There’s enough untapped wind howling across the vast plains of Oklahoma and Kansas to generate more electricity than a dozen nuclear power plants. What’s missing are transmission lines…That’s why Clean Line Energy Partners LLC plans to spend $9 billion on power transmission across the Great Plains, Midwest and the Southwest, including a 720-mile (1,158-kilometer) proposal awaiting approval from the U.S. Energy Department. It would be one of the longest high-voltage direct current lines built in a generation, and is among at least 11 proposed projects that may open up vast expanses for wind and solar farms with more than 26 gigawatts of capacity…[TransWest Express LLC is planning a $3 billion, 730-mile line from Wyoming to Las Vegas…[These projects are seen as essential to helping states comply with President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan]…” click here for more

    THE THOUSANDS OF JOBS IN SOLAR’S BOOM The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census 2015 Finds that U.S. Solar Workforce Grew by More Than 20% for the Third Consecutive Year

    January 12, 2016 (The Solar Foundation)

    “…[The sixth annual National Solar Jobs Census from The Solar Foundation (TSF) found that the U.S. solar industry employed 208,859 Americans in 2015…[including] the addition of 35,052 solar workers over the previous year, representing 20.2 percent growth…nearly 12 times faster [growth] than the national employment growth rate of 1.7 percent…The solar workforce is larger than…the oil and gas extraction industry, which shed 13,800 jobs in 2015 and now employs 187,200 people. The oil and gas pipeline construction industry, which employs 129,500 workers, lost 9,500 jobs…The solar industry is already three times larger than the coal-mining industry, which employs 67,929 people…Solar employers surveyed expect to add more than 30,000 jobs over the next 12 months…” click here for more
