  • Wind Protection for Solar Field - Case study

    Challenge A solar field supplier wished to refine their design to cut the cost of the mirror supports in a windy location. A related side benefit was that they could have the parabolic mirrors orientated to continue to generate electricity in wind storms that would otherwise require the mirrors to be rotated to the “stow” position facing into the ground. They were also ...

  • Simplistic understanding of transitioning to renewables in Colorado

    We have all heard that renewables are now cheaper than coal or gas, especially after the Xcel bid that was reported in 2018, with PV with battery storage at a median price of $38/MWh (3.8 C/kWh) and Wind at $19.3/MWh (1.9 c/kWh). If this is true, why don't we just replace everything with wind and solar right now? It is, of course, a bit trickier than that. These prices, listed above, are for ...
