The Latest on Solar’s Sweet Success, in 4 Great Graphs

Winter is a great time for solar—solar data, that is. Even if the panels themselves are covered in snow (which mine haven’t been, given our spring-like winter), this is the time of year when the industry’s progress over the previous year becomes clear. The annual stats for 2016 have just been released, and they offer still more proof that clean energy momentum is quite a thing to behold. Here are four graphs of solar progress to celebrate.

Why The Time Is Right For Nevada To Raise Its Renewable Portfolio Standard

It’s an exciting time for renewable energy advocates in Nevada. The state enjoys world-class renewable generation potential, and state residents are widely interested in clean energy development and jobs. Unfortunately, the state’s clean energy progress has stalled, as the state’s main policy driver, the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), greatly underestimates the amount of renewable energy potential in the state. The current standard would only require that utilities source 25% of their electricity from renewables by 2025. Fortunately, there’s a proposed bill that could help. Assembly Bill
