How Biden's Infrastructure Plan Would Impact Electric Transmission, Solar and Wind

Electric infrastructure
President Biden proposes to spend more money on clean energy than any other administration in US history through his infrastructure plan. Should the plan win passage as it stands now, businesses and utilities will be able to better employ tax incentives for clean energy. It would also give rise to a more abundant supply of renewable energy with increased transmission to move electricity from large wind and solar farms to population centers. The goal of the $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan aims t...

Understanding Solar Options for Commercial & Industrial Facilities - Part 3

Texas-Solar-Energy
Tapping into the power of the sun offers commercial and industrial facilities more control over their utility bills and the ability to operate in a more sustainable fashion. Plummeting prices and improved technology make a host of options available for companies that want to go solar. But they’re left with a lot of information to parse and deliberations to make. We have created this three-part commercial and industrial solar series to shed light on the types of solar installations possible today...

The High Cost of Heatwaves

The High Cost of Heatwaves
As temperatures continue to climb across the country this summer, the heat is certain to again wreak havoc on the electric grid. Every part of our aging infrastructure experiences immense strain when the mercury rises, and we all pay the price. Businesses use more power and that bumps up their summer bills. But the real cost of summer heatwaves stems from grid inefficiencies and operational challenges. Prolonged heat raises power prices, increases carbon-intensity, and ups the risk of brownouts ...

Supply, Demand & COVID-19: What ERCOT Foresees for the Summer

Supply, Demand & COVID-19: What ERCOT Foresees for the Summer
A recent report by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) indicates a wider cushion between supply and demand than previously expected for this summer because of the effects of the new coronavirus. Meanwhile, the grid operator also finds an ongoing shift underway in the state’s power mix towards intermittent wind and solar and the possibility of record setting peak demand. All of these elements could affect power prices this summer. Supply buffer up ERCOT forecasts its cushion between...

How the Federal Solar Tax Credit Works

How the Federal Solar Tax Credit Works
With solar prices falling and a key federal tax credit ramping down, commercial and industrial businesses are increasingly considering adding solar panels to their facilities. One of the top incentives for building solar facilities — the federal investment tax credit, or ITC — can make solar panels an appealing option, but it’s important to understand how the program works, especially its eligibility deadlines. Before getting into the details on the ITC, we should say the program could change so...
