      Milwaukee Eyes its Own Rooftop Solar Mandate with a California Clone

      Eyeing the success of the recently-passed California solar mandate, Milwaukee Common Council Member Tony Zielinski has proposed legislation that would require all new residential units in the city to include solar arrays, starting in 2019. Zielinski told Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) that the idea for his proposal came while he was reading about California’s rooftop solar mandate. “I think this is just one step in a series of steps that we need to undertake to help improve our environment and gradually reduce our reliance on fuels,” Zielinski said while appearing on WPR. ” There’s a whole myriad of other initiatives… I think we need to add more. I just think that this is one step and there’ll be additional steps down the road as well.”

      AES Commits to 70% Carbon Reduction in Climate Scenario Report

      AES, one of the world’s largest power companies, has released a report detailing the company’s moves to reduce carbon emissions 70% by 2030, but, more importantly, their plans to incorporate increasing amounts of renewable generation and energy storage projects to compliment this new generation. In the report, AES outlines three scenarios of optimization between carbon reduction and minimizing the stress of a new energy transition, known as the Business as Usual Scenario, the Greener Scenario and 1.5-2°C Scenario, the same one outlined in the Paris Agreement.

    3. New York to Invest (another) $40 Million in Energy Storage Deployment

      New York to Invest (another) $40 Million in Energy Storage Deployment

      In continued pursuit of his state’s 50% renewable by 2030 and 1,500 MW of energy storage by 2025, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo (D) has announced that $40 million will be made available to solar projects that integrate energy storage. Like CPS Energy earlier this week, New York is recognizing the necessity of expansive energy storage coverage to shift solar energy’s availability to times of peak demand, outlining in a release that the storage will be used for that goal. This reasoning is likely also behind Gov. Cuomo’s unique battery storage goal, first unveiled in his 2018 State of the State address this past January.
