May 7th, 2016 by  

red minions candy CPOI finally have enough sanity/time back in my life that I can get back to sharing our 10 most popular stories of the week.

    I think you story #10 is a really big deal. So many thought India would miss all it’s targets. If they start beating them! Zac any chance the CleanTechnica team in India might produce a India status graphic or table and update it each 3 to 6 months. Something a simple as MWs planned, financed, under construction, connected. It is such an important example for showing how Solar/wind can impact new/growing electric markets.

    • Thanks. I’ll ask them to do that. Think they could.
