This is your SolarWakeup for July 29th, 2016

How many times have legislators said that solar must compete on price. Not based on an RPS or carbon price or special carve outs. Now that solar costs have dropped 90% over 10 years and is doubling in market every year and a half, it’s normal for incumbent market participants to push back. Nuclear provides some important base load but let me be clear that power in open markets needs to be priced with market dynamic pricing. If the grid needs the baseload power that nuclear provides than the costs should reflect that. That pricing dynamic will undoubtedly cause more storage to be put in place because solar plus storage is renewable nuclear fusion bottled into a battery. The timing is right because in a few years, the storage sector would have policy staff that would make this exact case but that investment is not yet in the cards. So in the meantime, utilities will get what they can to keep the assets from being stranded.
