The wind farms will have a combined capacity of about 1.5 GW and will be the first two unsubsidized offshore wind farms globally when commissioned
India has emerged as the market leader with the lowest renewable energy cost in Asia Pacific, new research from Wood Mackenzie found
DTE will purchase the Isabella I & Isabella II wind parks from Apex Clean Energy. The two projects, totaling 383 MW and located in mid-Michigan's Isabella County, will be the largest clean energy projects in the state.
The utility company also is contributing approximately $125 million for a 51 percent controlling stake in the joint venture that acquired 379 MW of solar and wind generation projects from Geronimo Renewable Infrastructure Partners.
The projects include a 999-MW wind facility being built north of Weatherford, a 287-MW wind facility being built southwest of Enid, and a 199-MW facility being built south of Alva. They are being developed by Invenergy.
Mexico's foreign ministry said Wednesday that $500 million of U.S. aid will go to the building of a wind power plant and a liquefaction plant for natural gas
As the global electricity system embraces decentralization and renewable energy, large energy users may have more power – in all senses of the word – than they realize. That’s the message from Jereme Kent, CEO of One Energy, a company that installs, owns and operates megawatt-scale wind farms at industrial parks for C&I customers such as Whirlpool and Ball Corporation.
On July 1, Public Service of New Mexico filed a plan with regulators in the state for how it plans to get to a 100 percent emission-free power by 2040. The utility reviewed four scenarios, all of which involved the early retirement of the San Juan Coal Plant, to arrive at its recommended path forward.
Just over 20 years have passed since all New England states, except Vermont, restructured electric service to enable competitive retail supply and implemented basic protections focused on licensing, enrollment standards, customer notices and contractual protections. In recent years, additional rules have been implemented, such as credit card-style “Schumer Box” contract summaries, standard renewal notices 30-60 days prior to contract end, disclosures specific to variable price products, and minimum conduct standards for door-to-door sales. As New England heads towards its third decade of retail electric competition, the next evolution of rules and enforcement priorities is underway. The following new front-line issues, which hold the promise of both hindering and fostering competition, should be watched by all stakeholders.
