Investing: How to fit a wind farm into your portfolio 23.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
You can now fit a wind or solar farm into your portfolio, even if your portfolio isn’t exactly vast. Energy companies are wrapping renewable energy projects and other power-related assets that generate steady cash into new companies they hope attract investors hunting for dividends. In an unfortunate victory for corporate speak, they are called yieldcos.

Commission hears debate over solar power fee 30.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
For Barry Goldwater Jr., a clean energy economy is arriving in the form of efficient, low-cost photovoltaics and utilities that fail to embrace this innovation risk “getting run over by the future.” But the former Republican California congressman contends Rocky Mountain Power and other utilities are flexing their monopoly power to stifle the expansion of rooftop solar to preserve an outdated business model. “If you tax something, you’re going to have less of it,” Goldwater said at a rally Tuesd...

Letter: Rocky Mountain clouds my Blue Sky 24.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Rocky Mountain Power must be joking. I just received an email from RMP informing me that “if everyone enrolled in our Blue Sky renewable energy program, we could support enough renewable energy to have an equivalent impact of avoiding over 7 million tons of CO2 in one year.” RMP then asks me to spend at least $1.95 a month (“You choose your participation level”) to enroll in the program to purchase wind power. Hmmm. Let me see. I am a consumer who paid $25,000 two years ago to install rooftop so...

Solar panel garden to start construction in Craig in fall 4.7.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Pending permit approval, Craig soon will see the construction of its first solar panel garden this fall. The project has been in the planning stages for about a year but was held up when the company behind it, Clean Energy Collective, couldn’t get approval from its title insurance company to use the Craig land it had leased. The Craig City Council agreed to lease a plot of land to Clean Energy Collective in July — a 5-acre plot off Moffat County Road 177 near the wastewater treatment plant — but the company’s title insurance company said it couldn’t cover that plot because Trapper Mine owned the mineral leases there. Instead of moving to a new location in Routt County, Clean Energy Collective worked with a different title insurance company. “We went out and identified a different title company that legally understood the circumstances a lot better than other folks,” said Todd Davidson, director of marketing for Clean Energy Collective. The title company "was able to assure that if we ran into any issues, ...
