Crowdfunding Clean Energy

March 7 -- If you wanted to get large numbers of people actively engaged in helping to solve global warming, how might you go about it? For years, the main approach in the environmental movement has been to sound the alarm bell and implore people to consume less, switch to green products, recycle, and speak up to companies and politicians. It hasn’t always been an easy sell. However, if the approach of a promising Oakland-based start-up takes hold, there may be another line of action that could become available to ordinary people: directly financing renewable energy. >>View Article

Guest Column: ACC Shows Hostile, Destructive Thinking On Solar Power's Promise

March 5 -- Is there such a thing as too much solar power? Are too many individuals and businesses putting solar panels on their roofs? Is it time to call a halt to the burgeoning solar energy industry, shut down all those profitable solar companies and find more ways of generating electricity from coal and other nonrenewable forms of energy?

Or maybe it was the reminder that a renewable energy standard was a tradeoff to clear the way for construction of a new coal-fired power plant. Whatever it was, renewable energy sensibilities prevailed over the extreme conservative special interests that have had their way in Topeka this session more often than not. >>View Article

It's Rocky, But Our Transition To Clean Energy Is Well Underway

March 5 -- As the Obama Administration seeks to find its footing for a second term, there appear to be plenty of reasons to hold a very bleak outlook for clean tech in the U.S. and beyond. But when we take a look at some other indicators -- perhaps quieter data points that don't make the breathless headlines or trending tweets du jour -- a different story is emerging. >>View Article

Reid Correct About Renewable Energy

March 4 -- Nevada is home to tremendous untapped clean energy potential, as Sen. Harry Reid eloquently described in his recent address to the Nevada Legislature. The sensible reforms to the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard that he outlined should be implemented without delay. Nevada’s Renewable Portfolio Standard should chart a course toward additional solar, geothermal and wind investments while closing loopholes such as credits for an out-of-state hydroelectric project built more than a century ago. >>View Article
