    ‘Extraordinary’ month for Scottish renewable energy“On one day in particular, 15 May, output from turbines generated enough electricity to power 190% of homes or 99% of Scotland’s total electricity demand.” – Plus references to solar power being able to meet 100% of household needs across more than a few of the major cities. Scotland is aiming for 100% renewable electricity by 2020 (experts think they’ll hit 87%) and 50% renewable energy by 2030.

    Nevada Governor Sandoval says he will sign bill to bring rooftop solar back to Nevada – Net metering, at lower rates, is returning to Nevada. AB 405 would immediately allow rooftop solar customers to be reimbursed for excess generation from a solar system at 95 percent of the retail electricity rate. Over time, though, customer compensation would decline. The amended bill would create tiers, where credit rates decrease in increments for every 80 megawatts of rooftop solar generation deployed — to a floor of 75 percent of the retail rate. Net metering does apply to the Tesla solar roof – I only mention that because it is talked about in the above article as Tesla says they’ll return to the state.
