BY DAVID WOJICK, Ph.D. Some utilities have adopted a deceptive practice of making battery packs seem much more important then they are.
No "green wave" in the 2018 midterms.
A renewable energy campaign financed by Tom Steyer is trailing by double digits, an indication that Arizona voters are not too excited about a dramatic shift to wind and solar.
The war on energy moves to the states.
Despite enjoying millions of dollars from a Tom Steyer front group, a campaign aiming to increase Arizona’s renewable energy mandate is fumbling.
Tom Steyer’s “clean energy” campaign submitted numerous fraudulent signatures to qualify for AZ ballot
Not long after campaign supporters submitted their signatures and celebrated, opponents of the measure found numerous errors, inconsistencies, and what appears to be full-blown fraud.

Net metering has been around since the early 1980s when solar panels were expensive and few people had them. But the dynamics changed drastically when states began passing renewable portfolio standards (RPS) that required predetermined percentages of electricity be generated from renewable sources—some even specified which sources are part the mix and how much of the resource was required. For example, in my home state of New Mexico, the Diversification Rule requires that 1.5% of the RPS must be met by “distributed generation” (read: rooftop solar). Arizona requires 30% of the RPS be derived from “distributed energy technologies” (once again, rooftop solar).
