Being that clean energy is a fundamental issue in today’s political spectrum, the Whitehouse wants it to be available to all Americans. The plan is called, Clean Energy Savings for All Initiative. The goal is to bring 1 Gigawatt of solar energy to low and moderate income families by 2020 part of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan to install 100 megawatts to federally assisted housing.
Earlier this year California passed the second part of the Net-Energy-Metering program (NEM), deciding to continue to offer NEM at the same rate but with added charges for solar homeowners. NEM 2.0 now requires homeowners to go on a Time-of-Use Plan and adds Non-Bypassable Charges (NBCs) and a one-time Interconnection Fee.
Earlier this year, SunEdison commenced a complete restructuring of their corporation due to their loss that they filed late last year. To date, SunEdison is still the largest renewable energy firm in the world. They been in the solar business for over 40 years. Despite the company’s fast growth that lead to too much debt, they are as a matter of fact still in business. What this means to homeowners that have purchased or leased with SunEdison is peace of mind with their system warranty.
