More cleantech project news:

  1. Gamesa announced at the end of last week that “enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles Company, has executed a purchase agreement to acquire the Chestnut Flats Wind Farm in Pennsylvania.” Chestnut Flats includes 18 G90-2.0 MW and one G87-2.0 MW Gamesa wind turbines.
  2. First Wind announced last week that “it has reached agreement with Vestas to purchase 77 V100-1.8 MW turbines to be deployed at projects under development in Maine and in construction in Washington.”
  3. Vestas announced last week that it had “received an order for delivery of a total capacity of 42 MW for the Zarzuela wind project to be installed in Burgos, in the north of Spain.”
  4. Trinity Solar recently installed its 3,000th solar electric system, a pretty tremendous milestone.
  5. China announced this month that it was shelving a $500-million U.S. solar power plant because of the SolarWorld petition claiming that it’s dumping solar power in the U.S.
  6. Light rail projects in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill “Research Triangle” region and in Cincinnati moved forward this month through voter support.
  7. IKEA announced last week that it “officially plugged-in four Blink Pedestal electric vehicle charging stations at its Carson, California store as part of its partnership with ECOtality.”

  9. The 99-MW Greenwich Wind Energy Project on the northern shore of Lake Superior, in Ontario, has now been completed. The project is jointly owned by Enbridge and RES Canada.

Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in. But he offers no professional investment advice and would rather not be responsible for you losing money, so don't jump to conclusions.
