The abundance and low cost of natural gas is driving the construction of natural gas-fired power plants throughout the U.S. and Canada. In the U.S., increasing environmental »

U.S. Northeast, New England Encourage Solar Project Growth

States in the Northeast and New England market regions are experiencing rapid growth in utility- and residential-scale solar generation projects, with the help of state programs like the NY-Sun solar incentive in New York, which aims to add more than 3,000 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity to the state by 2023, and the New York State Energy Plan, which »

Oregon Expands Renewable Projects Portfolio

Oregon recently expanded its renewable portfolio standards (RPS) to 20% by 2020, 27% by 2025 and 50% by 2040 in an effort to make the state rely more on renewable generation such as wind, solar and hydroelectric and to obtain less electrical generation from coal-fired power plants. Eligible renewable technologies for the state RPS are wind, solar, hydroelectric, ocean thermal, »

Duke Energy Carolinas: Slow Growth, More Solar Projects and Maybe Nuclear

In its annual 15-year integrated resource plan for the Carolinas, Duke Energy said it foresees slow electric load growth, a near-tripling of solar generation (to about 2,100 MW), and increased hydroelectric generation through a $200 million upgrade at its Bad Creek pumped storage hydro station. The utility predicted a 33% increase in nuclear energy by 2031, suggesting it is »
