This is your SolarWakeup for July 28th, 2015

David Roberts from Vox has the right headline today. Solar (especially rooftop) is booming due to cost declines, more innovative financing structures and fair regulatory policies. With the ITC and net metering being attacked daily (see today’s “ratepayer advocate” from Arizona) you can see how quickly this could go sideways for solar. Just think about how much money is spent by solar companies on public policy and regulatory research. This money isn’t spent for the good of solar. It is spent for the good of the companies that lobby for the policies that drive their business model.

This is your SolarWakeup for July 27th, 2015

Hillary Clinton has come out with a strong proposal on climate change and solar in particular. What amounts to growing solar seven-fold by 2027, Clinton is looking to make sure that America understands that solar energy is an economic prosperity and growth story where jobs are always available and pay well above average. What we have to remember is that while we get big headlines, there are many smaller headlines and misleading campaigns on what is smart and shady and how net metering is bad for utilities and consumers. Everyone has a motive, so when you read the headline, understand what the motive is.
