Weekly Clean Energy Roundup


Each week, CleanChoice Energy provides a roundup of the most interesting developments in the clean energy industry. Read on to see what we found interesting this week.

  1. For the First Time, Wind on the Plains Supplied More Than Half Region’s Power

  2. Wind turbines across the Great Plains states produced, for the first time, more than half the region’s electricity Sunday. The power grid that supplies a corridor stretching from Montana to the Texas Panhandle was getting 52.1 percent of its power from wind last Sunday.

  3. Renewable Energy Can Benefit Agriculture

  4. Farmers are getting on the renewable energy train, with some even renting out their land to host wind turbines. According to Eli Bowles, Renewable Energy Technology Instructor at the College of Southern Idaho, “They're farming and doing whatever they need to do. That was one of the best things ever to see traditional old school farming with the new school farming it was awesome.”

  5. Chemists Improve Batteries for Renewable Energy Storage

    Chemists from the University of Utah and University of Michigan have developed a “charge-storing molecule around 1,000 times more stable than current compounds.” This will allow “redox flow batteries,” a type of battery used for grid storage, to be more stable and longer lasting. 

  6. New York Sees Almost 800% Growth in Solar Power Over Five Years 

    New York state continues to lead the country when it comes to solar power. Since December 2011, state-supported solar power increased by almost 800%. According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, "Our investments in this clean energy resource create jobs, reduce carbon emissions, support economic growth, and help build a cleaner, greener New York for all.”

Check back next Friday for more industry updates.
