Hickenlooper Takes a Stand on Obama Clean Power Plan (Ind. Report)
John Hickenlooper
Date: 2017-04-03
In Denver, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (Dem) is taking a stand against Trump's move to quash the Obama Clean Power Plan. Hickenlooper says his state, the seventh-largest energy producing state in the U.S., will not be deterred by Trump's agenda and will continue its push to increased renewable energy and slashing carbon pollution.

According to the governor, Colorado has been addressing climate change since at least 2004, when voters approved a measure requiring utilities to source a minimum of 10 pct of their power from renewable sources by 2015. The target was later increased to 30 pct by 2020. In 2010, the state enacted legislation requiring utilities to replace some coal-fired electrical generating plants with natural gas facilities.

According to a spokesperson for the governor, Colorado has not yet met the goals but is on track to do so by 2030 -- the deadline in the Clean Power Plan for U.S. states to cut carbon emissions 30 pct. Although some states favour Trump's move others are moving ahead on their own initiatives to cut carbon emissions or encourage renewable energy. (Source: Office of Gov.

GE Supplying Minnesota Solar-Wind Hybrid Project (Ind. Report)
GE Renewable Energy, Juhl Energy
Date: 2017-02-27
GE Renewable Energy reports it will supply wind and solar components for the first ever US commercial integrated solar-wind hybrid project. The 4.6 MW project is a community project set for Red Lake Falls in Minnesota, and to be developed by North American developer Juhl Energy. GE Renewable Energy has been contracted to supply two 2.3-116 wind turbines from GE Renewable Energy's Onshore Wind business, as well as 1 MW of solar power conversion equipment.

The 4.6 MW project is set to enter commercial operation later this year.

The Red Lake Falls project will utilize GE's Wind Integrated Solar Energy technology platform to integrate the solar panels through the wind turbine's converter so that both wind and solar share all the same balance of plant to increase annual energy production by up to 10 pct.
