Solar projects on former brownfields will rank among state’s largest Oct. 28, 2013 7:31 PM Written by Arron Nathans, The News Journal Two solar projects under construction in northern Delaware, both on former brownfields, are expected to rank among the biggest such arrays in New Castle County. The larger project, which will produce 2 megawatts of power, is nearly complete on 7 acres of industrial land at Seventh and Industrial Streets in downtown Wilmington, near the Kalmar Nyckel tall ship. A megawatt is a snapshot measure roughly equal to the amount of power it takes to run 750 homes at any one moment. […]
Dave Turner, COO of Tangent, said the solar panels on the Port Richmond roof could cover one-and-a-half football fields.
He said the company’s expertise is helping large energy users — like the city of New York and the DEP plant in particular — integrate clean energy generation into their systems.
“On hot summer days when energy demand reaches peak levels, centralized generation is maxed out and transmission distribution lines are stressed, distribution generation facilities like these provide a cost-effective way to maintain system reliability without relying on costly fossil fuels,” he said.

Exerpt from The Exchange – A Yahoo! Finance Blog By Tim Sprinkle | The Exchange — Tue, Nov 13, 2012 3:47 PM EST “The renewable-energy industry has been politicized so much that I don’t think anyone can see the long-term strategy anymore,” says Dean Musser, CEO of Tangent Energy Solutions. “It’s a boom and bust cycle right now.” The problem, Musser explains, is that government incentives have created a “gold rush” mentality among many in the industry, with providers moving from state to state as credit programs are created, overbuilt and then allowed to expire. It’s a difficult model to sustain, especially for the startups that […]
