Happy St. Paddy's Day! May you giggle with fate and be forever young.

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.

    September 19, 2016 (Bloomberg News)

    “…[A] solar farm under construction in the Ningxia region of the [China’s] northwest takes efforts to a new level…[It is] being developed in phases by the clean energy unit of China’s biggest private investment group, will cover…slightly more than 7,000 U.S. east coast city blocks…[and will have a capacity] of 2 gigawatts…The 15.6 billion-yuan ($2.34 billion) plant will need about 6 million panels and will be the biggest the world has ever seen…Minsheng New Energy’s Ningxia plant is emblematic of China’s clean-energy ambitions. China’s solar installations more than doubled to 50 gigawatts in the two years through 2015…[and installations are projected to] more than double again to 109 gigawatts by the end of 2018…[T] he U.S. is expected to have about 41 gigawatts of solar by the end of this year…One reason Minsheng hopes the sheer scale of the project will work to its benefit: the decreasing price of solar panels, which account for a majority of total investment in the farm. Solar panel prices have averaged about 3.85 yuan a watt since construction began, but have fallen about 12 percent to 3.4 yuan a watt currently…” click here for more
