Citizen-led coalition calling for 3 GW of solar power by 2030 in US state of Colorado

first_imgCitizen-led coalition calling for 3 GW of solar power by 2030 in US state of ColoradoThe coalition of more than 11,000 citizens and 280 businesses is calling on Colorado state officials to ramp up rooftop solar installations, with a target of 1 million solar roofs by 2030. November 28, 2013 Ian Clover Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share More than 11,000 citizens and 280 local businesses have turned out in Denver, the capital of the state of Colorado, U.S., to urge local state officials to do more to support the installation of rooftop solar panels. The coalition’s chief aim is to improves upon Colorado’s current PV capacity of 300 MW, and increase it ten-fold to 3 GW by 2030. To achieve this, the coalition argue, one million rooftops in the state should be fitted with solar panels. “There is strong public support for expanding solar in Colorado,” read a press release issued by Environment Colorado, a lobby group for solar and renewable energy. “We’ve made great strides on solar in Colorado, and the progress we’ve made to date should give us confidence that we can take it to the next level.” A number of environmental organizations, farmers, ranchers and local business owners have lent their backing to the movement, calling for even further action to help the state move to greener energy supplies. Environment Colorado calculates that the installation of solar panels on one million rooftops would help the state cut 3.6 metric tons in carbon emissions each year, the equivalent of removing 760,000 cars from the roads. There are economic benefits, too, with the Denver Business Journal estimating that Colorado’s solar power industry has already brought $1.42 billion to the state’s economy since 2007, creating more than 10,000 full-time jobs in the process. Rebecca Cantwell, director of the Solar Friendly Communities program, believes that the environment aside, solar’s economic benefits are reason enough for the state to pursue even more growth in the sector. “Solar energy is ready to play a major role in Colorado’s future,” she said. “It creates jobs, strengthens local economies, cuts air pollution and conserves our precious water supplies.” A similar One Million Rooftops Campaign has also been launched in California. This citizen-led campaigning comes just weeks after official energy regulators in Arizona imposed a small monthly fee on solar rooftop consumers‘ bills. The $5 levy was seen as a victory for the solar industry, following intense campaigning from utilities to impose a much higher tariff.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Brilliant Hazard takes Chelsea up to third
