Northern B.C. native leaders form consultation alliance
Energy Now
People once paddled great distances to set up fishing camps on the land where Liz Logan's family has lived for generations in northern British Columbia. Now Tsinhia Lake has yellowed, the fish have died and her family must carry in bottled water to drink. The damage from oil and gas industries has prompted Logan, chief of the Fort Nelson First Nation, to help form an alliance with other aboriginal leaders against the provincial government. The signatories say concerns about massive developments in their territories are not being addressed.

Utility Drive
It was only in May that Tesla Chairman and CEO Elon Musk unveiled residential storage options that seemed poised to revamp home energy markets. The PowerWall will come in two sizes, with a 7-KW system available for $3,000.

Why the installed price of distributed solar keeps dropping
Utility Drive
The decline in the installed cost of solar should have slowed down two or more years ago, and the fact that it hasn't is surprising even the most experienced energy analysts. After 2008, the cost of solar modules started falling precipitously, sending the installed cost of solar tumbling as well. When module prices started flattening out around 2012, many expected the installed cost to do the same. But that never happened.
