Louisiana lawmakers move on renewable energy bills
CNBC    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As millions of gallons of leaked oil swirl around the Gulf of Mexico and enter Louisiana's delicate coastal wetlands, several bills that would help Louisiana harness more energy from renewable sources are winding through the state Legislature. The measures, if passed, would help Louisiana capture energy from the Mississippi River's currents, make it easier for residents to install solar panels on their homes and allow cities and parishes to trade in their fleets of gas guzzlers for more efficient vehicles.

Florida takes giant step with huge solar-power plant
Orlando Sentinel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Florida Power & Light Co.'s newest solar-energy plant will have enough mirrors to cover 80 football fields. But those mirrors will focus sunlight onto surfaces that add up to slightly less than the area of a single football field. That concentration of solar power will generate temperatures of more than 700 degrees -- hot enough to make electricity for 11,000 homes. More

Environmentalists praise Illinois solar energy bill
Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Environmentalists are beaming over legislation meant to encourage the use of solar energy in Illinois. The measure would set annual targets for the amount of electricity that power companies must produce through solar energy. Advocates say the annual targets would help companies gradually reach a requirement that's already state law -- by 2015, 6 percent of renewable energy must come from solar power. More

    Solar panels can attract breeding water insects, but scientists propose simple fix
    Solar Glazing    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Solar power might be nature's most plentiful and benign source of energy, but shiny black solar cells can lure water insects away from critical breeding areas, a Michigan State University scientist and colleagues warn. Applying white grids or other methods to break up the polarized reflection of light, however, makes mayflies and other aquatic insects far less likely to deposit eggs on the panels thinking that they are water, the group discovered.
