Beyond the Model 3, Tesla’s overall car deliveries were on target for the fourth quarter and the year.

While electric car company Tesla has begun to increase the number of Model 3 vehicles it can make, it’s still struggling to hit its own numbers.

In a release on Wednesday afternoon, the company run by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, said it plans to hit a milestone of making 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the end of the second quarter of this year.

But late last year, Tesla said it planned to hit that 5,000 car-per-week production rate by "late Q1." Previously, Tesla was trying to manufacture Model 3s at that rate sometime in 2017.

NV Energy customers will actually see a rate decrease from last week's decision.

The outlook for rooftop solar in Nevada has boomeranged in the span of two years.

In December 2015, Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) voted to hike rates and eliminate net metering for both new and existing rooftop solar customers. The unprecedented move threw the state’s rooftop solar market into chaos. New installations stopped dead, rooftop solar companies were forced to close shop, and customers saw the savings from their solar investments disappear.

At the time, accusations swirled that the three-member commission, appointed by Governor Brian Sandoval, was doing the bidding of state utility NV Energy.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo presented energy plans for New York in the 2018 State of the State address.

On Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered his 2018 State of the State address, revealing new energy goals as New York heads into the fourth year of its Reforming the Energy Vision process. 

The plan offers cash and sets capacity goals for two emerging industries, energy storage and offshore wind. Governor Cuomo wants to solicit 800 megawatts of offshore wind solicitations over the next two years, and 1,500 megawatts of energy storage projects by 2025. 

While Europe has blossomed into an offshore powerhouse, the U.S. market hasn't yet taken off. Rhode Island’s 30-megawatt Block Island project is the only functioning U.S. offshore wind farm. Last month saw

A handful of large companies currently dominate the U.S. solar PV operations and maintenance market. But distinct player landscapes also exist at the regional level, according to the latest O&M report published by GTM Research, “Global Solar PV O&M 2017-2022: Markets, Services and Competitors.”

The report identifies the top PV O&M vendors in the nation: First Solar, SOLV, MaxGen, SolarCity, and SunPower. These five players alone represent more than 19 gigawatts of operational PV systems under O&M at the end of Q3 2017 -- more than the 30-plus other U.S. vendors analyzed in the report.

The merger would alleviate some rate stress on South Carolina electric customers.

In a monumental deal made public on Wednesday, Dominion Energy and SCANA Corporation announced a conditional merger that would roll debt from the failed VC Summer nuclear project into one of the country’s largest utilities.

Under the merger, SCANA investors would get two-thirds of a Dominion share for every SCANA share. The share swap, plus debt, amounts to $14.6 billion.

The deal adds over a million customers to the Dominion empire, extending its reach to 6.5 million customers in 18 states. 

If approved, Dominion says it plans to cut electricity rates in South Carolina Electric & Gas service territory by 5 percent, write off $1.7

The commercial solar industry entered the holiday season with an unexpected policy gift from Washington.

The new tax plan passed by Congress introduced two provisions favorable for commercial solar installations: a reduction in the corporate tax rate and the expansion of depreciation allowances.

Unsurprisingly, there are very strong and divergent opinions on whether the tax bill will benefit society at large. This article does not attempt to address these important societal questions, but rather will solely analyze how the return on investment and net present value for commercial solar installations will change under the new tax code.
