As Cost Plunges, Solar Power is Ready to Surpass Coal | Energy&Environment | Scoop.it
Within the next four years, solar power will finally be cheaper than coal nearly everywhere, aligning economic and environmental interests.
Agron S. Dida's insight:
Energjia elektrike nga panelet solare do të jetë gjithkund në botë më e lirë se ajo e thëngjillit pas 4 vitesh... e te ne, për shkak të mungesës së rregullativës nga Zyra e Rregullatorit të Energjisë, ende nuk mund të instalohen panelet në kulmet e shtëpive dhe të lidhen në rrjetin e shpërndarjes. Tashmë është e qartë se energjia solare në Kosovë është rentabile (shih punimin: http://energjia.al/2013/08/06/energjia-e-diellit-si-resurs-energjetik-i-kosoves-2/ )... :-)

Transitioning from coal to solar in Kosovo

Transitioning from coal to solar in Kosovo | Energy&Environment | Scoop.it
Kosovo, one of the world's youngest countries, relies on two aging coal-fueled power plants to generate electricity for its population of almost 2 million. The plants are inefficient, dirty, dangerous and unreliable. Customers frequently lose power, and critical facilities such as hospitals rely on stand-by generators. Arizona State University professors, however, have begun working to help address these issues.
