8 Facts to Know About Green Bonds
Millions of investors have embraced socially responsible investing, preferring to put their money into stocks of firms that don't sell weapons, alcohol or tobacco. But few investors are as familiar with a kind of second cousin: green bonds.

Wind Industry Calls OK Marketplace 'Uncertain' with End of Incentive
Oklahoma's burgeoning wind energy capacity was accompanied by the swelling cost of the state subsidies that encouraged the industry's growth.

Financing Water and Wastewater Projects with Tax-Exempt Bonds
This guidebook, published by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, provides an overview of issues relating to the financing of water and wastewater projects in general and financing with tax-exempt bonds in particular.

Even as Wind Power Rises, It Falls Under a Political Cloud
Under new leadership with ties to conventional energy interests, the Energy Department is scrambling to complete an internal study in the next month that could lead to an upending of the policies that fostered the rapid spread of solar and wind.

Five More Solar Projects Utilize OR Incentive
The projects — one each in Malheur, Klamath and Jackson counties, and two in Marion County — bring to 20 the number of projects that Business Oregon was able to squeeze into the Solar Development Incentive program before coming up against a 150 megawatt cap.

A new report by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center (NCCETC) found that 37 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia took some action related to grid modernization in the first quarter in an effort to make the electricity system more resilient and interactive.

Editorial: McAuliffe Presses Clean Energy for Economic Development
Gov. Terry McAuliffe is calling for new state rules designed to limit power plants' carbon emissions and encourage broader use of clean energy sources. Virginia's solar job market is the ninth-fastest-growing solar jobs market in the nation and clean-energy business revenue in Virginia has increased from $300 million in 2014 to $1.5 billion in 2016, a five-fold increase

Monticello, GA, to Purchase Mine Lake Estate with USDA Loan
The Monticello City Council agreed to move forward with the purchase of Mine Lake Estate in Jasper County. The purchase will provide the city with enough water for the foreseeable future, as it has eight operating wells, and a 40+ acre lake. The purchase will be made through USDA grants and loans.

New KY Law Paves Way for Infrastructure Investments
P3 Kentucky, a new communications hub, will help inform and connect Kentucky's local and state leaders who are considering public-private partnerships to solve pressing needs for water and sewer improvements, economic development projects and other public infrastructure investments.
