Many of us might assume that the reason so much energy still comes from gas and coal power plants is simple economics: those fuels are cheaper. But though it was once true, that assumption has actually been obliterated by a recent decline in solar and wind costs over the past decade.

When it comes to the cost of energy from new power plants, onshore wind and solar are now the cheapest sources—costing less than gas, geothermal, coal, or nuclear.

New Wind Farm To Increase West Virginia's Wind Power By Nearly 15%

New Wind Farm To Increase West Virginia's Wind Power By Nearly 15%
| #TpromoCom #RenewableEnergy #WindFarm | Clean, renewable energy for West Virginia residents surged forward today when Clearway #Energy Group selected the Bechtel-Reed & Reed Joint Venture, to build its Black Rock wind farm in Grant County and Mineral counties. The new wind farm represents a nearly 15% increase in the state's wind power and will produce enough green energy to power 34,000 homes. http://bit.ly/3qWvYhF

The Bechtel-Reed & Reed team, will engineer, procure, and construct the farm. The project will include twenty-three Siemens-Gamesa SG 5.0-145 wind turbines on 107.5-meter tall towers, producing 115 MW of electricity at the point interconnection to the First Energy electrical grid.


"We're excited to partner with Bechtel and Reed & Reed and look forward to potential that their combined resources can bring to this critical project," said Chris Fox, Vice President of Construction at Clearway Energy Group. "This represents Clearway's second renewable project in West Virginia, and provides a great opportunity for us to add construction jobs and permanent positions to our existing workforce in the state. Black Rock represents an important and growing sector of West Virginia's economy and we are proud to help drive that growth."

Solar Energy: New form of solar energy to enter US market


New form of solar energy to enter US market
 | #TpromoCom #solarEnergy #SolarPower #Solar | "Conceptually, it's a whole new thought process on how we make power." (abcnews.go.com

"Organic energy makes power from light at any angle, in any way. It's totally flexible because it's just printed ink. Conceptually, it's a whole new thought process on how we make power," said Paul Frischer, President of GO-OPV, an organic energy company.

The panels could be used for windows or trucks, phone or computer chargers, or it can be a building-integrated photovoltaics in glass.

The need for an alternative to electricity from a central point is increasing with each passing day. The 3D Solar Panel is a Do It Yourself project that instructs as to where to get the materials and how to put them together. The cost is insignificant compared to the free electrical energy you'll receive when it's finished.

Solar Energy is Hitting a Growth Spurt. So Is The Disinformation Around It. | #TpromoCom #Solar #SolarEnergy | Anti-renewable energy campaigns are nothing new in the Lone Star State. A new wave of disinformation could spell trouble for the state’s fledgling solar industry (texasobserver.org)

David Dunagan doesn’t want a 760-acre solar power plant to be built across his fenceline. The Old Jackson Power Plant will replace farmland in Van Zandt County with gleaming, metal panels. 

Though the 127-megawatt plant will provide clean, renewable energy for some of the nearly 7.5 million residents in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex Dunagan has been organizing local landowners to stop it for the last year.
