THIS MONTH'S ENERGY PROFILE

In addition to leading the charge in sales for solar PV leader, Sunpower in one  of their biggest markets, Ryan Pickering of Topanga, CA has chosen a lifestyle that he believes could solve many of the complications the California energy landscape is currently facing. Pickering lives in a "grid-optional" house that he built and designed to offer both comfortable living and energy efficiency.

Pickering believes the next chapter in California's future is to make alternative resources like solar and micro-hydro power available and affordable to CA homeowners.

THE POLICY UPDATE

CPUC REFORMS KEY INCENTIVE PROGRAM

Besides energy industry insiders, few people are aware that California provides one of the best home battery rebate programs in the country; one that’s capable of covering most of the cost of a new home battery. That’s because there’s one big problem with this amazing program: it’s nearly impossible for regular homeowners to access it. Fortunately, a massive reform has been proposed by the California Public Utilities Commission, that will make this rebate more accessible to every day homeowners than ever before.

Not only has the CPUC decided to dedicate 15% of the $400M in incentive funds specifically to homeowner applications, it has increased the coverage to $600/kWh.

INDUSTRY BEAT

CA ISO LEADS HISTORIC PUSH FOR DISTRIBUTED ENERGY RESOURCES

The California ISO manages 6,000 miles of transmission lines, balances its grid every four seconds, and optimizes it every five minutes.
