Georgetown TX Investing $1Mn in Solar Energy Storage (Ind. Report)
U.S. Mayors Challenge
Date: 2018-11-02
The City of Georgetown, Texas, -- pop. 70,400 +- -- a $1 million winner in the Bloomberg U.S. Mayors Challenge -- reports it plans to use some of the funds to lease 10-15 residential rooftops to install nearly 400 solar panels that will allow the city to collect solar-generated energy which will be will be stored in several strategically located batteries for use during power outages.

This summer, Georgetown became the largest U.S. city to source 100 pct of its energy needs from renewables. The city purchases 144 MWh from the EDF Renewable Energy's Spinning Spur 3 wind farm near Amarillo, and 150 MWh from the NRG Energy's Buckthorn solar plant in West Texas.

The Bloomberg U.S. Mayors Challenge is a year-long competition under which city leaders from across the country develop proposals that would reinvent a city's practices on climate change and other issues.

Fishermen Getting Third Crack at NJ Offshore Wind (Ind. Report)
Fishermen’s Energy
Date: 2018-06-04
In the Garden State, thanks to Gov. Phil Murphy's (D) recent signing of NJ bill S-1217, Fishermen's Energy is going to get a third chance to convince the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to approve its twice previously rejected 24-MW pilot offshore wind project about three miles from Atlantic City.

S-1217 requires the BPU to accept an application from Fishermen's and review it within 90 days. The company's two previous proposals were rejected by the BPU as being too expensive for the state's ratepayers, who will pay for the electricity from the wind turbines.

Since the Fishermen's project was last before the BPU, the company reached a preliminary agreement earlier this spring to be acquired by EDF Renewable Energy, a global developer of clean-energy projects. EDF has developed 400 MW of offshore wind capacity in Europe. Orsted, U.S. Wind and Deepwater Wind are planning to develop an offshore wind project in a joint venture with the Public Service Enterprise Group about 16 miles from Cape May. The BPU is currently working on developing a funding mechanism to have ratepayers subsidize offshore wind along the coast.
