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.
