Wind and Solar Create More Jobs When They're Locally Owned, Report Finds 31.10.2014 Truthout - All Articles
At last month's People's Climate March, among the most popular signs were ones supporting renewable energy like wind and solar as the best way to avoid a climate catastrophe. And because of the urgency of the situation, it's easy to think that we should be building up renewables as much as we can. But, from an economic point of view, it turns out that not all renewable energy is created equal. One main difference is between energy generators that are locally owned and ones owned by some faraway entity, and a new report from the Institute of Self-Reliance presents the details. The report, written by Senior Researcher John Farrell, makes two main points: Locally owned renewable energy projects create more economic benefits than absentee-owned projects, and they are less likely to encounter community opposition. By enacting policies to support local renewables, Farrell argues, states and counties stand to gain thousands of jobs and millions of dollars. Farrell's report presents striking data from an earlier ...

Bay Area solar firms take dim view of Arizona utility’s move 25.10.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
In Arizona, the state’s largest utility has proposed leasing rooftops from its residential customers, installing solar arrays and paying the homeowners $30 a month in return. If approved by state regulators, the plan would place Arizona Public Service in direct competition with Bay Area companies such as Sungevity, Sunrun and SolarCity that already lease panels to homeowners. Washington state legislators this year rejected a bill that would have given utilities exclusive rights to lease panels to their customers. The bill, which solar companies worry may return in the next session, said that “If an electric utility offers a leased energy program, no other entity may offer leases to the utility’s customers.” With the number of rooftop solar installations rising at breakneck speed, utilities have begun to fear a future in which more and more customers generate their own energy, leaving others to bear the cost of maintaining the electrical grid. The APS plan would treat solar panels the same way, with ...
