  36. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p style="text-align: justify;"><b>Happy Weekend. </b>Let me give an end of the week shoutout to the parents and teachers in the SolarWakeup family. Virtual learning has turned me into tech support and hall monitor while the snack pantry has no way of supporting a ten year old sitting through a 7 hour zoom call. Have a great weekend and for those that celebrate, Happy Rosh Hashanah!<br><br>
  37.  
  38. <b>Delays Not Reductions. </b>This is the part that everyone is getting wrong about their analysis of the solar market as it pertains to Covid. Forecasters are tracking the end of the funnel, not the entire ecosystem. Two things happened during Covid that you won’t find in lower install volume. New sales never stopped and in many cases didn’t slow down but picked up steam. More people were home learning about solar and signing contracts. This caused the installers to grow their biggest backlogs they’ve ever had since installations had slowed down. That is why every month since June, installers, lenders and suppliers have had their best months ever, every single month.<br><br>
  39.  
  40. <b>Newsom Has The Opportunity. </b>Newsom always says the right things when it comes to climate change and typically when he talks about solar as well. Here are several things that are in his court right now that cost nothing, help provide solutions for climate change, resiliency and the energy crisis and positive economic growth. First, Newsom can call for a statewide adoption of instant permitting for residential solar by implementing the SolarAPP. Second, he can show leadership by calling on the CPUC and SMUD to strengthen net metering, not try to destroy the policy. Third, direct the CPUC to return local resource adequacy purchasing back to the local utilities and CCAs. Fourth, work with the CPUC, CAISO and market participants to create a more granular and accessible demand response market; not just during energy crisis but at all times which will create a vibrant and resilient microgrid market. Lastly, stand with CALSSA on the Capitol steps and call on all Californians to support the 1 million solar batteries initiative. Call us, we’re available!<br><br>
  41.  
  42. <b>FERC Wants DERs. </b>There is a realization happening in the market that distributed resources are a valuable asset to grid resiliency. The South Carolina settlement is wrapped in value placed on the assets. Yesterday, FERC passed order 2222 which tells power market operators to create rules that allow distributed resources to participate in the market. We’ll bring you more detail on this in the coming weeks.<br><br>

  84. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p style="text-align: justify;"><b>BP Solar Comeback. </b>20 years ago, BP was the talk of the solar town. Just outside of DC, BP made solar modules because solar was the future. Then came Chevron with tax equity but that too passed. When you look at issues facing oil today, part of it is Covid and hundreds of parked airplanes but the other one is that oil is competing with electricity and losing. BP is in the business of powering your method of transportation, that’s why Vitol is out with an announcement expanding their power trading as well. Electricity is the new oil and that’s where the majors are going. Not too long ago, BP said that they couldn’t invest enough capital in renewables. 5 years from now they will have invested tens of billions and more; with less risk and better returns than they get today. Anyone doubting their return expectations go check out their corporate bond costs and ask your friend at NextEra if they expect 8-10% returns as well. Here’s a prediction, in my lifetime the CEO of BP will come from the renewables division and it will be the core revenue generator.<br><br>
  85.  
  86. <b>The Greater Responsibility. </b>Peter Parker was told that with great power comes great responsibility. If you haven’t noticed, solar is being asked to do a lot more than install a few panels. Our industry will lead on creating jobs where other industries have left them behind. Remember the Gaval family in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania living in a home worth less than $115,000? I haven’t stopped thinking about them and how the parents and two sons would surely be an asset to the solar industry and they could each live in their own house. We hold ourselves to a higher standard than just making money. Helping others, making solar inclusive and diverse while creating more jobs than any other sector is part of our DNA. With that internal bar set so high, outsiders will judge us and expect solar to fix it.<br><br>
  87.  
  88. <b>EV Charging PubCo. </b>Chargepoint is going public via a reverse merger with a SPAC. This is a great step in the direction to bring charging to retail investors. For me, retail investors create comfort and credibility for the underlying company they are working with. An investor may look at it from a company standpoint and then realize they have 50 chargers in their County and they should get an electric vehicle. It normalizes the concept.<br><br>
  89.  
  90. <b>Farewell Spent Rods. </b>I had some long form opinion about the state of nuclear but as much as some utility regulators hold out hope that nuclear is the future, it is merely the past. We will not see another nuclear power plant built in the US and likely other western Countries as well. There are many reasons for this but the biggest one is the lack of capability to actually build one.<br><br>
  91.  
  92. <b>SC Rooftop Solar. </b>Vote Solar is calling the agreement with regulators and Duke Energy “the most forward thinking rooftop solar program in the US.” The NEM successor creates a system blended with demand response, storage and other variables in what some would call the biggest step towards performance based compensation. Without modeling out how this actually tracks to homeowners, I have two thoughts on this. First, a deal is a win and certainty beats uncertainty any day. Second, wouldn’t it be fantastic if the monopolies also had performance based compensation and allowed a robust power market in their territory?<br><br>

  131. <description><![CDATA[<p>No Column Today. Your solar news will return tomorrow including a new SolarWakeup podcast about the concept of a competitive power market in the Southeast United States. If you prefer to hear my podcast from the other side of the table, I joined the Solar Spotlight from Greenlancer podcast to talk about solar.

  174. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p style="text-align: justify;"><b>No More Naked Roofs. </b>Every house has a roof on it so why doesn’t every roof have solar? Within our community this doesn’t seem like a stretch and even may be our goal, so why doesn’t this possibility get more airtime in mainstream news? The jobs, the distributed resilience and cost savings for consumers are all benefits that will be the side effect of this endeavor that wouldn’t actually cost anything.<br><br>
  175.  
  176. <b>The Google Promise. </b>There are layers to the Google promise on carbon neutrality. In this latest announcement, Google said it will only use carbon free electricity by the year 2030 including in a 24/7 time matching. This will drive significant energy storage and other generation that will allow for that to happen. Second, Google has now repaid its climate debt, meaning its emissions since startup have been offset. This is the first time I’ve seen climate debt paid off, what would happen if every Fortune 500 did this going back to 2000 or earlier?<br><br>
  177.  
  178. <b>Making Climate Political. </b>Normally politicians have to message in order to drive polling numbers in their favor. Climate and clean energy issues have long polled well in a bipartisan way but have failed to drive the politicians in their direction. One of the problems may have been that bipartisan issues don’t do well in politics. To that end, Joe Biden’s campaign seems to be happy to take the issue as their own and making it partisan. I don’t love the idea of solar becoming 100% partisan but it’s been somewhat so already. Let’s hope both sides fight over solar as their issue and who loves it more.<br><br>
  179.  
  180. <b>A SPAC To Watch. </b>SPAC are all the rage these days. While not new, acquisition corporations are gaining favor in the capital markets as an easier and less turbulent path to public markets. This SPAC, <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="https://www.iposcoop.com/ipo/climate-change-crisis-real-impact-i-acquisition-corp/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" data-saferedirecturl="https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.iposcoop.com/ipo/climate-change-crisis-real-impact-i-acquisition-corp/&amp;source=gmail&amp;ust=1600231235286000&amp;usg=AFQjCNHVVOZWMEgMAyOEf65jSUYHYOJxYg"><b>Climate Change Crisis Real Impact I Acquisition Corp</b></a></span>, has a notable CEO in David Crane. Crane, as you may recall, sounded the alarm about climate change when he was the CEO of NRG. The Chairperson of the SPAC is Mary Powell, former CEO of Green Mountain Power and still a director of Sunrun amongst other clean energy companies.<br><br>
