Shining a Light on Fuzzy Logic

Published on 13 Jan 2014  |   Written by 

A recent RenewablesBiz piece, “Why roof-top solar panels really don't make sense” makes a puzzling argument at best. The combination of fuzzy logic and conflating arguments on everything from roof angle to net-metering “magic” leaves all but the most uninformed solar observer baffled. Simply put, rooftop solar makes a ton of sense--when you look at the facts.

In December ACORE released its new report titled “Renewable Energy In the 50 States: Northeast Region.” The report provides a detailed market and policy overview of states located in the Northeast region of the United States. During that time, I had the opportunity to talk about renewable energy in the Northeast with five ACORE members including Bob Cleaves, President and CEO of Portland, Maine-based Biomass Power Association.

Conservatives, Snyder Stump For Renewables

Last week, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder unveiled his long-awaited strategy for the state’s energy plan going forward. The Governor’s speech came on the heels of a report from Michigan’s Public Service Commission, finding that it is eminently possible for Michigan to derive more than 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2035.

Earlier this month ACORE released its new report titled “Renewable Energy In the 50 States: Northeast Region.” The report provides a detailed market and policy overview of states located in the Northeast region of the United States. ACORE was lucky enough to have a select group of its members participate in a December 3rd press conference surrounding the release of the report. During that time, I had the opportunity to talk about renewable energy with five ACORE members including Steve Morgan, CEO of American Clean Energy.

Renewables Heating up in the Northeast

Published on 05 Dec 2013  |   Written by 

With high electricity prices, a reliance on imported energy, and ongoing retirements of fossil fuel power plants, the Northeast has a strong incentive to develop local, renewable sources of energy. Aided by a well-established, supportive portfolio of policies in nearly every Northeastern state, the region ranks second in the nation for both solar power capacity and biomass power capacity. However, renewable energy capacity overall is lower than in the Midwest, Southeast, and West, with fewer large-scale renewable energy facilities like wind farms.
