Clean Power Hour LIVE - November 17, 2022

2. High electricity rates push homeowners to consider solar.
3. First solar cell factory (modules too) in the USA for a decade announced - Enel 3 GW up to 6 GW
4. Volvo launches first semi-made with fossil-free steel
5. Why the Feared Wave of Solar Panel Waste May Be Smaller and Arrive Later Than We Expected.
6. Heat pumps for harsh cold environments 
7. Tampa launches solar-powered sidewalks to run street lights when the electricity goes out
8. US army starts construction of a microgrid based on Lockheed's long-duration energy storage
9. Are sheep ITC eligible? Here’s some good logic. (probably not, but if we push hard enough, maybe)
10. Billions flowing into battery factories in the USA - nice chart sharing capacity announcements

We were also joined by Scott Nguyen from Bodhi Solar to discuss the soft costs of solar and installers.
