Several large U.S. solar developers have announced a new coalition that will buy up to $6 billion in made-in-America panels, in a move that could more than double the country’s panel-manufacturing capacity.
The new US Solar Buyer Consortium said yesterday it had opened a request for proposals from U.S. manufacturers who could supply up to 7 gigawatts of solar panels per year, starting in 2024.

FACT SHEET: President Biden Takes Bold Executive Action to Spur Domestic Clean Energy Manufacturing

Today’s clean energy technologies are a critical part of the arsenal we must harness to lower energy costs for families, reduce risks to our power grid, and tackle the urgent crisis of a changing climate. From day one, President Biden has mobilized investment in these critical technologies. Thanks to his clean energy and climate agenda, last year marked the largest deployment of solar, wind, and batteries in United States history, and our nation is now a magnet for investment in clean energy manufacturing.


Three common myths about solar energy, demystified

By Daisy Simmons Photo: Werner Slocum , Nrel

Solar energy could play a big role in reducing carbon pollution from the U.S. electricity grid over the next few decades. According to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Energy and the affiliated National Renewable Energy Laboratory, solar could in some scenarios potentially deliver on 40% or more of the nation’s electricity demand – a shift that would achieve significant cuts in carbon emissions to help turn the tide on climate change.


Why Tiny Solar Projects Play an Outsized Role in Powering Puerto Rico
