Comments Off on Planned Solar Projects Swell from 17GW to 24GW Due to Falling Prices

While anti-solar distortions continue to proliferate , solar itself is looking like an increasingly serious player in the world of energy.

Comments Off on Large-Scale Energy Storage is Making Renewables More Viable
