    Utility Giant’s CEO Talks Fires And Climate Change Facing $17 Billion in Fire Damages, a CEO Blames Climate Change

    Mark Chediak, August 13, 2018 (Bloomberg News)

The notion is that this sort of deal structure will enable more midsize and smaller organizations to more directly procure renewable energy…[The offtake requirements are much smaller, less than 20 MW, and the tenure requirements are] shorter…” click here for more
