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, January 23: Do You Know What The Climate Change Monster Looks Like?; Arizona Looks At Big Wind Buy; Trump's Solar Tariff Makes America A Loser Again

    Do You Know What The Climate Change Monster Looks Like? Help Us Design a Climate Change Monster; What fictional beasts will our shifting environments bring?

    Natasha Frost, January 22, 2018 (Atlas Obscura)

    “…Our changing world will doubtless inspire fictional monsters—but what will they look like?...[It looks like] what happens when ecosystems are allowed to run rampant...[Maybe it] lives in the sea…[and is] huge and primordial…[Maybe it has a post-nuclear kick with] two tails, and far more eyes than anything really needs…[Atlas Obscura wants help imagining] climate change monsters…Where will the climate monster come from? Where does it live? What will it do? Use your imagination…[S]end all ideas to Natasha Frost by Thursday, January 25, 2018…” click here for more

    Arizona Looks At Big Wind Buy Tuscon Electric seeking bids for up to 150 MW of wind energy

    Michelle Froese, January 16, 2018 (Windpower Engineering & Development)

    “…[Arizona’s second biggest investor-owned utility, Tucson Electric Power (TEP), wants] proposals] for the design and construction of new wind energy resources that could power up to 31,000 homes annually…TEP plans to seek cost-competitive bids for 100-150 MW of wind energy from resources that interconnect with TEP’s system or deliver power through a third-party firm transmission service. The energy will help TEP work toward its goal of delivering at least 30% of its power from renewable resources by 2030, doubling the state’s 2025 goal…[TEP would] contract with the successful bidder in 2018 and begin receiving power from the new wind resource in 2021…[The utility is moving to capitalize on market conditions and tax credits to contract with projects for energy, as well as] ancillary services and supporting energy storage systems…[New Energy presently provides nearly 11% of TEP] power…” click here for more

    Trump's Solar Tariff Makes America A Loser Again President’s Decision on Solar Tariffs is a Loss for America

    January 22, 2018 (Solar Energy Industries Association)

    “…[The decision by President Trump to impose 30 percent tariffs on imported solar cells and panels will likely] cause the loss of roughly 23,000 American jobs this year, including many in manufacturing, and it will result in the delay or cancellation of billions of dollars in solar investments…[These tariffs] will not create adequate cell or module manufacturing to meet U.S. demand, or keep foreign-owned Suniva and SolarWorld afloat…[but] will create a crisis in a part of our economy that has been thriving, which will ultimately cost tens of thousands of hard-working, blue-collar Americans their jobs [according to Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) President/CEO Abigail Ross Hopper]…SEIA estimates that a tariff at this level will eliminate, not add to, American manufacturing jobs. There were 38,000 jobs in solar manufacturing in the U.S. at the end of 2016, and all but 2,000 made something other than cells and panels, [including] metal racking systems, high-tech inverters, machines that improved solar panel output by tracking the sun and other electrical products…” click here for more
