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, ...

Letter: Green energy can, too, be stored 21.6.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
George Ekdahl is wrong to assert that green energy “can’t be stored for times when there is no sun and wind.” (“Don’t quit fossil fuels,” June 11). One example of green energy storage is to use the surplus energy to pump water uphill for later release when the energy is needed. Another storage strategy is to use the surplus energy to separate hydrogen from water molecules. The hydrogen can be used to fuel electric generation plants, or it could be used as a clean fuel for motor vehicles and air...

Solar array likely will not be built in Craig 6.6.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Plans for a 5-acre solar garden in Craig probably won’t see the light of day anytime soon, if ever. Now, Craig's loss could be Routt County's gain. “There were basically mineral reservation issues that did not allow us to proceed,” said Jonathan Moore, land manager for Clean Energy Collective , the company that would have constructed the solar panel garden in Craig city limits. The city of Craig agreed to lease a plot of land to Clean Energy Collective in July, in exchange for a 5 kW solar panel that would produce about $800 of energy each year for the city. The solar garden would have been built off Moffat County Road 177 — close to the wastewater treatment plant — and could have powered 200 homes. Any Yampa Valley Electric Association customer could have used electricity from the array at about $850 per panel. It also would have helped YVEA comply with the Colorado law that requires electric utility companies to get 20 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2020. While its decision isn’t ...
