Portugal Hit 70% Renewable Electricity In Q1 2013

Reposted from Lenz Blog: Portugal is the newest country to make the list of over 60% renewable electricity. According to this report by the network operator REN, it got 70% in quarter one of this year. The largest part (37%) comes from hydro, which had excellent weather conditions, leading to a 312% increase over last year's figures. But wind also contributed 27%, with a 60% increase, also primarily due to favorable weather conditions. As expected, generation from coal … Read More

Lancaster's New Home Solar Mandate Helps Prove Solar Is Attractive To Conservatives

On March 4, we wrote about Lancaster’s requirement that all new single-family homes have solar panels installed on them. So we skipped covering the confirmation of that when the City Council of Lancaster made it official on March 26. However, I’ve decided to come back to it for one important reason. As reported previously, Lancaster’s Mayor, who brought up the plan (and wants to make Lancaster the “solar energy capital of the world”), is a … Read More

US Tidal Energy Company First Scottish Renewable Energy Inward Investment

New York-based ResHydro has announced plans to establish operations in Glasgow, Scotland, a move that would make them the first US renewable energy inward investment in Scotland. The news, released by way of a press release on PR Newswire, is hopefully the first of many such more outward US renewable energy investments. ResHydro, apparently, “uses cutting-edge industrial science to harness the power of water currents to produce electricity.” The Scottish operations will allow ResHydro to … Read More

Germany's Electricity Surplus Nearly Quadruples In 2 Years

For all those acting like Germany is going to be without electricity (or have to import a lot) from its energy revolution (well underway), the Telegraph has a note for you: “Figures just published appeared to vindicate Germany's clean energy revolution, showing that the country's electricity surplus had nearly quadrupled between 2011 and 2012.” Thanks to Climate Denial Crock of the Week for the share. Unfortunately, the Telegraph then goes on to mention the price tag for … Read More

Grid-Tie Solar + Power Outage Backup!

Depending on the reliability of the electricity supply in your location, you may want a backup generator. They are usually diesel or gasoline fueled, but they can very well be fueled using sunshine. The convenience of backup generators is priceless, because when there is a power outage, you will normally be bitten up by mosquitoes, sweat like a pig, and wait in silence (except for that high-pitched mosquito buzzing) without television or internet access until … Read More
