      Industry Slams US Coal and Nuclear Subsidy Plans

      The Department of Energy (DoE) wants to "purchase or arrange the purchase of electric energy or electric generation capacity" for two years and delay coal and nuclear plant retirements, according to a memo made public on 1 June. But a coalition of energy industry associations, including AWEA, condemned the proposals, claiming it would "hurt consumers". It is unclear whether the president had signed off on the DoE’s latest 40-page document, authorising the bail out of coal and nuclear plants.

      Energy Storage Could Be Residential Solar's Next Growth Product

      Residential solar installers are quietly starting to expand their offerings to include energy storage, which could be a much-needed revenue boost for the industry. Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) Powerwall is the best-known energy storage device, but Sunrun (NASDAQ:RUN), SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR), and Vivint Solar (NYSE:VSLR) are entering the market as well, and they're seeing some signs of success early in 2018. What's great about energy storage for solar installers is that it's incremental revenue that leverages existing marketing and sales expenses. And it could help make solar more attractive to customers in states that have made it more difficult to justify solar economically.
