Xcel Energy, the EPA, and the Colorado State Land Board joined community solar developer Clean Energy Collective (CEC) to officially open Denver County's newest community solar facilities — two 500-kW solar arrays in Denver County. Developed on a 5-acre site at the Evie Garrett Dennis School campus in northeast Denver, the two medium-scale solar PV arrays, consisting of more than 4,000 panels, are the eighth and ninth arrays CEC has brought online as part of Xcel Energy's Solar Rewards Communities program.
Consumers now are setting the agenda.
The industry’s transformation has begun. Should the F40 transform too?
The regulator’s role in a world divided by distributed generation.
Minnesota Power, a division of ALLETE, and the Minnesota National Guard signed a memorandum of understanding outlining plans to build a 10-MW utility-scale solar energy array at Camp Ripley, located in central Minnesota. The project will be the largest solar energy installation on military property in the state. The solar farm and backup generation will be designed and constructed to allow Camp Ripley to use the energy produced by the project during infrequent periods when the electric grid is down, providing enhanced energy security for the military site.
Renewable Energy Systems Canada (RES Canada) was selected to construct a 10-MW solar PV facility, GoldLight Solar, for Canadian Solar Solutions. Located in Georgina, Ontario in the Regional Municipality of York, construction of GoldLight Solar will begin in summer 2014 with the facility expected to be fully operational by the end of the year. Once completed, the project will provide electricity to the Ontario Power Authority under a 20-year feed-in-tariff (FIT) contract.
Solar for Everyone, including Utilities

A new front opens in the solar wars.
The city of Palmdale announced the completion of an aggregate 976-kW DC solar generation project. Located at Palmdale's Civic Center, DryTown Water Park and Marie Kerr Park, the system is designed to generate more than 1,580 MW-hours of electricity per year and meet nearly 70 percent of the electricity needs for the three sites. Constellation financed the project's development and will own and operate the system.
