U.S. withdrawal from energy transparency group called strategic

US withdrawal from energy transparency 'strategic' Leaving a transparency initiative on fossil fuels was a mistake, advocates said, but Washington and a former Trump associate said the decision was strategic.

Whitefish Energy 0 with 2 employees - gets $300m contractWhitefish Energy issued an apology to San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and “everyone in Puerto Rico” for comments posted in a public Twitter spat on Wednesday. The Montana-based company is at the center of a controversial $300 million contract to restore electricity to the storm-battered U.S. island territory.

After Cruz questioned the transparency of the “alarming” contract—the largest awarded for relief efforts after Hurricane Maria—and demanded it be voided, Whitefish Energy’s Twitter account called her comments “disappointing and demoralizing” and appeared to threaten to stop working altogether: “We’ve got 44 linemen rebuilding power lines in your city & 40 more men just arrived.

Wholesale energy prices dip below zero because of California’s solar power

Solar power in CaliforniaSolar power shines bright in California, and wholesale energy prices prove it. Last winter and early spring’s dependence on solar drove wholesale energy prices to negative prices, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Solar power in the California Independent System Operator accounted for nearly 40% of net grid power for three hours on March 11, 2017, the administration reports —a major first.

These figures don’t translate for the consumer into retail prices, which are based on averages. But the move will likely cause energy companies to pay more attention to green energy options.
