How Blockchain Is Threatening to Kill the Traditional Utility

Renewable Energy - Tue, 2018-04-10 10:29

If utilities think rooftop solar panels and batteries are bad for business, blockchain should scare the bejeezus out of them. That’s because in addition to helping more people slap panels on their rooftops — which eats into power sales and taxes grids — the distributed, digital ledger that’s proliferated across industries can also be used to trade electricity without a utility even knowing it.

Notes from the Solar Underground: Marketing Basics Price, Place, Product, Promotion

Renewable Energy - Tue, 2018-04-10 07:17

Price, place, product, promotion — the four Ps of marketing are drummed into every marketing and business school student as the basics of market strategy. True…but everything is relative and as the energy industry remains subsidized, mandated and subject to government manipulation, it can be difficult to get the four Ps to work in concert with each other.

To Be a True Climate Leader, California Must Show the World How to Stop Using Fossil Fuels — Period

Renewable Energy - Mon, 2018-04-09 06:18

California is a renowned global leader on climate and clean energy policy, but risks becoming a follower and falling short. To achieve the state’s long-term deep greenhouse gas reduction goals and to continue setting the strong example the rest of the world needs, California must set a clear target to end fossil fuel dependence and transition to 100 percent renewable, non-polluting sources for all energy uses by mid-century.

3@3 on Solar PV: Refuting the Anti-Solar Argument that Everyone Else’s Rates Go Up When People Go Solar

Renewable Energy - Fri, 2018-04-06 10:53

Today we focus on one topic that has a lot of spokes. And it’s this: refuting the claim that when people go solar, everyone else’s bills increase. We’ll take three of the age-old arguments about how residential solar increases rates for non-solar customers and explain why those arguments do not hold water.
