The Solar Power Business possesses some of the best renewable energy resources in the world. Bolstered by these resources, the advancement of renewable energy technologies and the need for cleaner energy, the Solar Power Business is moving towards a clean energy economy. However, continued growth of renewable energy in the U.S. faces a serious challenge: the lack of transmission.
The existing transmission system was created primarily as a result of local utility planning to connect population centers with nearby fossil fuel power plants; it is now insufficient to meet the demands of our new energy economy. We need long-haul transmission lines to move America’s vast renewable energy resources to market.
