    so far announced state-run Electricity Institute (ICE) due to heavy rains that have kept hydroelectric
    plants going strong helped by wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal energy.
    This reliance on renewables has prompted the country to lower electricity rates by 12 percent.
    ICE predicts that rates will continue to drop for Costa Rican customers in the second quarter.

    In 2009, Costa Rica announced its goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2021. Costa Rica already gets
    88 % of its total electricity from renewable sources. Hydroelectric supplies 68 %, geothermal 15 %, and
    wind 5 % with solar and biomass contributing slightly.

    Costa Rica’s reliance on hydroelectricity makes it vulnerable to climate change however.
    The Legislative Assembly has approved a $958 million geothermal project and will get help paying
    for it from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency and European Investment Bank.
    In 2012, ICE announced that it would be developing 100 megawatts worth of wind farms and
    40 megawatts worth of small-scale hydroelectric plants through 2015.
    Part of the reason why Costa Rica can devote so much funding to environmental issues
    is that the military was abolished in 1948. (ThinkProgress)

    Suppose your quote is $30,000 all-inclusive for a financed-to-own system
    which is a ballpark-figure I've seen mentioned recently.
    Further suppose your total annual electric bill last year was $3,000.

    Thinking of it as an investment, you'd be earning 10%
    assuming your bill would be negligible after installation.

    The tax credit reduces your after-tax cost 30% to $21,000.

    Seeing Home Depot's prices for Grape Solar, I reckon you might be able
    to do the improvement using some of your own labor and self-financing
    for less than $18,000 or about $12,000 after-tax.

    Figure some reasonable depreciation.
    Your home-solar investment could yield over 25%. Shop around!
    Professional builders usually get 10% discounts from supply stores.
    Spring and summer are the ideal seasons for outdoor home-improvements
    in northern latitudes, so start planning soon.

    By Shuli Ren, Barron's Asia
    China’s energy regulator National Energy Administration released its official
    solar installation target for 2015. Beijing decided to install 17.8 GW.
    This year, there is no mention of a breakdown into large-scale utility solar farms versus
    smaller rooftop distributed projects. Last year, Beijing insisted that the solar industry
    move to rooftop projects, even though the companies had trouble getting financing.

    Bet that every Dixie judge and lawyer installs rooftop-solar.
    Anyone who doesn't would be ridiculed by the entire Bar as a recalcitrant troglodyte.
    Expect all of the courthouses, jails, prisons, and police stations to do likewise,

    Kemper Project

    By Steve Wilson | Mississippi Watchdog (March 4, 2015)
    Mississippi Power reported a $26 million cost increase for the Kemper Project in its monthly report
    filed with the Public Service Commission and an SEC 8-K filing. The power plant’s total cost,
    including the associated lignite mine and other ancillaries, is up to nearly $6.2 billion.

    A recent Mississippi Supreme Court decision will likely mean more than 186,000 ratepayers will get a refund on the 18 percent increase to fund construction of the plant, which could add up to more than $200 million. The court’s ruling also scuttled a settlement reached between Mississippi Power and the PSC that would
    hold customers responsible for paying only up to $2.4 billion of the plant’s costs. The settlement was voided because it wasn’t reached in a public hearing, which the court declared “illegal.”
    Mississippi Power has until next week to file for a rehearing in front of the state Supreme Court and has told
    its customers in 23 counties that they can expect a 35 to 40 percent rate increase if the decision stands.

    Kemper is designed to convert high-moisture lignite coal into a natural gas-like substance called synthesis gas to burn in the facility’s 582-megawatt turbines. It also has a carbon capture system designed to remove
    65 percent of carbon dioxide from the gas stream before it heads to the turbines, which have run on natural gas since August. The plant will be two years behind schedule when the gasifier comes online in March 2016.

    Kemper Project costs increased another $50 million last month in another 8-K filing with the SEC.

    SO is another case study of damage done by imprudently pliant Directors in an ostrich effect.
    Shouldn't a responsible Board have immediately suspended the divident quite some time ago
    when the first hint of cost overruns became known. The stock's price would have fallen of course
    which is exactly what should've happened. Perhaps that would've moved Management to take
    prompt remedial action such as aborting troubled Projects thus salvaging real value for holders.
    Study the situation now, and speculate how much worse it'll get.
    Rather than vainly striving to support SO's market-value, asset-managers should quickly blow it
    out of conservative portfolios into deep-distress funds! Its debt should be discounted likewise.

    Disclosure: no position in SO
