Letter: Everything on Earth is solar powered 23.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Solar energy, properly understood, is far and away the largest supporter of jobs on the planet. All agriculture/grazing/forestry is directly derived from sunlight. All above sea level water movement (as well as a lot below) comes from sunlight moving water into the atmosphere (yes, mountains as we know them, are created by the sun). All wind energy is dependent on sunlight. Amazingly, even oil, coal and natural gas are forms of solar energy. These extractive industries are the ugly side of what...

Bloomberg View: States can keep the rooftop solar market growing 19.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Almost overnight, it seems, the decade-long expansion of rooftop solar in the U.S. has come to an end. Installations are set to fall by 2 percent this year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Power companies pressing for this change argue that the practice shifts costs from the affluent owners of solar-powered homes to poorer ratepayers... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Can Colorado really achieve 100 percent green energy by 2040? 14.7.2017 Denver Post: Opinion

Letter: Scorching temperatures show need for alternative energy 27.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The main section of The Tribune on June 21 contained the article, “First day of summer scorches Southwest.” The article correctly ties the heat wave to climate change and warns of the dangers of severe injuries and even death to people and pets. The article speaks of “straining the power grid,” and the operator of California’s power grid, calling on people to conserve electricity during peak hours. What the article makes no mention of is the fact that these increasingly common and dangerous heat...

Op-ed: Rocky Mountain Power’s short-sighted business model 25.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The term “short-sighted” can mean near-sighted or be used to describe lacking imagination or foresight — the perfect description of Rocky Mountain Power’s (RMPs) proposed net metering fees for home owners who have invested in rooftop solar. The way we make and use energy is fundamentally changing. However, the way our utility makes a profit is based on an antiquated, 100-year-old business model. Even more concerning is that in reviewing Rocky Mountain Power’s proposed new fees for rooftop solar,...
