2022-06-10 Burning FFs Accounts For 87% Global CO2

Burning fossil fuels accounts for 87% of global CO2 emissions. The cost of solar has fallen more quickly than experts predicted. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/06/08/just-the-facts-the-cost-of-solar-has-fallen-more-quickly-than-experts-predicted/

2022-06-01 Solar V. Wind In Tropical Africa

There are 2 problems with solar in the tropic zone. One is that there are a lot of very green trees that block the sunlight year round, and would have to be cut down to make room for the solar panels. Solar panels could be located in areas where there are no trees. But there

2022-05-25 DoE SETO: Solar Must Double In Next 3 Years

Let’s get going! Time is wasting! It’s got to be done ASAP! << The US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) said in order to meet 2035 targets, solar deployment has to double in the next three years, and ultimately ramp up to 100 GW by 2035. >> https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/05/20/perovskite-solar-cell-technology-on-the-road-to-commercialization/

2022-05-20 EIA: Solar, Wind To Be Larger Sources

US EIA expects solar and wind to be larger sources of US electricity generation this summer. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/05/19/eia-expects-solar-wind-to-be-larger-sources-of-u-s-electricity-generation-this-summer/

2022-04-28 Ginormous 20 GW Solar + Storage Project in NT, Australia

Sun Cable plans to build 17 to 20 gigawatt plus battery storage in Australia to power Singapore through undersea cable. $30 billion (Aus). To show how Ginormous this project is, divide 20 billion watts by 1000 watts, then multiply by 2.5 (400 watts per panel). So 20 million times 2.5 is FIFTY MILLION solar panels!!

2022-03-31 Solar Tariffs 50% Or More!

https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/03/29/solar-starts-strong-in-the-u-s-growing-40-year-over-year-in-january/ Comment on FB group (look at the bar graph) This article said “…Nearly 40% year-over-year.” That’s good but not good enough. That needs to be more than 100% year-over-year. The whole solar industry depends on the wafer fabrication facilities, which have grown but demand is still exceeding the supply. The US needs a large

2022-03-28 Misinfo Derailing Wind, Solar Across US (NPR)

Misinformation, especially on Facebook and social media, is derailing renewable energy projects across the US. These fools are going to cause the planet to suffer greatly. https://www.npr.org/2022/03/28/1086790531/renewable-energy-projects-wind-energy-solar-energy-climate-change-misinformation

2022-03-15 Calif Solar Is A Battery Market

California’s Solar market is a battery market. Interesting article. It says that battery storage is to be used as long term storage. https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/03/14/californias-solar-market-is-now-a-battery-market/

2022-03-13 Solar Parks Could Increase Rainfall

Solar parks could help to increase rainfall in Saudi Peninsula. This is interesting – the darker solar arrays change the albedo or sunlight reflectivity. Maybe they’ll have to turn the solar parks into agrivoltaics and plant crops under the solar arrays. https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/03/08/solar-parks-could-help-to-increase-rainfall-in-arid-regions/
