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. Partly to blame is a widening campaign to end a key customer incentive, homeowners’ ability to sell their extra energy back to the grid at retail prices. 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>

Advocates Plan Solar Installations Along Keystone XL Route 18.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Environmental groups have launched a campaign to install solar panels along the Keystone XL route, literally and symbolically blocking the pipeline with a renewable energy future. (Photo: Shannon Ramos / Flickr ) When President Donald Trump signed off on a presidential permit okaying the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline in March, it was a real blow to an environmental movement that had tasted victory over the dirty tar sands clunker back in 2015 when President Obama withdrew the permit for the project.
