Renewables Overtake Coal In US Electricity Mix For The First Time

EDF Renewables North America today announced the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with NV Energy for the Arrow Canyon Solar Project.

NV Energy has unveiled ambitions for a solar-plus-storage boom over five years, cementing its position among the United States players tapping into the increasingly cost-efficient hybrid.

The global "Residential Solar Energy Storage Market" report delivers a comprehensive and systematic framework of the Residential Solar Energy Storage market at a global level that includes all the key aspects related to it.

NV Energy's embrace of the hybrid is not new, however.

Scheduled to be completed by December, the 9,018 solar panel ground-mount array is projected to produce 3,291,000 kilowatt hours of electricity in its first year.

In addition to its economic benefits for the Tribe and Clark County, the project will utilize an innovative design to generate enough clean energy to meet the consumption of up to 64,000 average Nevada homes.

NV Energy will seek approval of the projects from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada as part of its integrated resource plan filing. NV Energy said it has a long-term goal of serving customers with 100 percent renewable energy. The group will provide NERC compliance support, remote monitoring, and balance-of-plant management to maximize power production.

As noted by The Verge, this is the first time in U.S. history that the country's renewable energy production numbers have outpaced coal-based alternatives - as the EIA's report states, coal energy production sat at around 60.1 MWh in April. According to U.S. EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies calculations.

The capacity will come from three solar parks, each with an energy storage facility, that will be brought online by end-2023. EDF Renewables' North American portfolio consists of 16 GW of developed projects and 10 GW under service contracts. (Plus Renewables) has created a renewable energy joint venture platform in Taiwan with W Energy Investment Corporation (W Energy), a local developer of solar and renewable energy, for the development, construction, operation, and ownership of various classes of renewable energy assets, including rooftop and ground mounted solar power, floating solar power, and small onshore wind power.
