    Electrek green energy brief: Sunshot+Enphase save Hawaii, Politicians on the move, $23T, and more


    DOE Sunshot team + Enphase + HECO + SolarCity figured out how to deal the highest per capita solar market in the country that was producing too much solar to be managed, leading to a 2,700 homes not being able to connect to the grid. With computer modeling, new tools were developed that allowed the utility to faster evaluate individual circuits and the solar connected to them. These tools will spread and places that are partially blocked to installation volume – like Eastern Massachusetts will get much more efficiency in their deployments.

    The Politicians are moving – Maryland Legislature overrules Governor to implement more aggressive RPS, Wyoming legislatures vote against wind + solar tax, Nevada asked better calculations of energy ‘attributes,’ and Maine politicians extend net metering 15 years with annual decrease in payment. Greentech gave a nice summary of the active 2016 that DSIRE has put together. Maryland, by increasing the volume of electricity needed from renewables will pump up the depressed price of its SREC market. Wyoming will get to take advantage of Trump infrastructure and massive wind. And Nevada might design its rate system – what people pay and what various electricity sources are worth – on smarter numbers, recognizing truly what solar power brings to the table.

    30% wind and solar is pathetic. This illustrates why utility owned wind and solar is the wrong path. We should strive for grid independence.
