    New Energy At A Pivot Point

    The Energy 202: January may be a make-or-break month for the U.S. solar business

    Dino Grandoni, January 3, 2018 (Washington Post)

    “…The federal government faces two deadlines in January that could have far-reaching ramifications on the U.S. solar industry if they do not go industry’s way…[First, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)] needs to decide whether to accept a Trump administration proposal designed to boost coal and nuclear power plants…[Second, the president will] choose whether to slap rival nations with a set of tariffs the domestic solar industry largely opposes…The decisions come just as the United States is poised to capitalize on several years of growth in renewable energy sources. Wind and solar sources provided 7 percent of electricity generated in the country in 2016, up from less than a percentage point a decade ago…[The FERC must decide if Energy Secretary Rick Perry and some independent experts are right that] the grid may someday no longer be able to provide power at peak hours…[S]tudies — including the Energy Department's own — found the loss of traditional power sources has not yet diminished the grid's reliability…[The majority of observers argue the International Trade Commission was misguided in ruling that imported solar panels harm the broader solar industry but the decision provides the president] with a much-sought opportunity to levy a tax on China…” click here for more
