We could put utility-scale solar plants in our cities

Grist | March 17, 2015 | Column by Bobby Magill

There is a scene in Gattaca when Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s characters walk through a giant concentrating solar plant spread across a broad, flat California desert. It’s a striking moment in the film, partly because it illustrates how visually imposing and vast utility-scale solar power plants can be as they sprawl across the desert.

California could power itself three to five times over with solar

Washington Post | March 17, 2015 | Column by Puneet Kollipara

Deserts and remote fields are popular spots for building vast arrays of solar panels, which generate dramatically more energy than individual homeowner rooftop installations. These areas are rich in sunlight while offering plenty of clear, flat land to work with. But what if we didn’t always have to go all the way out to these remote and potentially ecologically fragile areas? What if we could simply drive down the street and make use of the buildings and lands in areas we’ve already developed?

New record: SolarCity rooftop systems produced 4GWh in a single day last week

Treehugger | March 16, 2015 | Column by Michael Graham Richard

In April of 2014, SolarCity announced a new milestone: 3GWh of clean electricity generated by its solar systems in aggregate over a single day. But even that impressive number was just the beginning for 2014, since more solar power is generated during the summer, which is convenient because that's when the grid is most strained to provide electricity for people to run air conditioners. SolarCity went on to hit 3.5GWh days last summer, but even that has already been eclipsed and it's not even officially spring; last week, they hit a 4GWh day, a nice new round-number milestone.
