Vivint Solar brings Mercedes home batteries to U.S. 19.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
[...] it will team with Mercedes-Benz to bring solar storage batteries to U.S. homes, putting it in direct competition with Tesla. The sleek battery, about the size of a mini-fridge, will allow homeowners to take better advantage of the energy their solar power systems produce, whether to cut costs or to maintain a steady source of electricity during power failures. Boris von Bormann, chief executive officer of Mercedes-Benz Energy Americas, said the combination will allow customers “to take the next step toward a sustainable energy future.” To the companies, along with rivals like Tesla and other solar installers that have joined forces with battery providers, that future involves tracts of software-enabled homes with solar panels on their roofs feeding batteries that can charge electric vehicles and power lights and appliances at times when drawing from the grid is costliest. For solar companies, battery storage may provide a lift in a market whose dizzying pace of growth has suddenly slowed, ...

State breaks another renewable energy record 19.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology

State breaks another renewable energy record A stretch of sunny, windy days, combined with brimming reservoirs at hydroelectricity facilities across the state, helped California reach yet another renewable energy milestone last weekend. Early Saturday afternoon, renewable sources produced a record 67.2 percent of the electricity on the portion of state’s power grid controlled by the California Independent System Operator. More than half of the renewable energy flowing across the grid at that moment — 58.7 percent — came from large solar facilities. Last month, the federal Energy Information Administration, the statistics division for the Department of Energy, reported that for a span of three hours on March 11, solar power met roughly half of all electricity demand across much of the state. Greenlee added that the steady stream of record-breaking days is a positive sign that the grid is adapting well to the influx of renewable energy.
