52-MWAC solar project to produce low-cost, renewable electricity for thousands of homes
SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2018 /3BL Media/– Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) Renewable Energy and Environmental Finance today announced it has completed $49 million in tax-equity funding for the new 540-acre solar generation facility known as MS Solar 3 in Sumrall, Mississippi.
Teachers like Joseph Alter, and their students, are supplying energy to countries without access to electricity, thanks to We Share Solar® Suitcases and support from Wells Fargo.
Hilltop Special Services Center teacher Joseph Alter was looking for hands-on learning activities for his high school students in San Francisco when a colleague told him about We Share Solar. Now his students will help provide energy to people in other countries who don’t have access to electricity — and they are discovering new career opportunities.

What if the roads we drove on, instead of being made of carbon-intensive petroleum sludge, were actually solar panels? And what if whenever electric vehicles drove on these solar roads, they were automatically re-charged? Sounds like a fiction, wishful thinking, a dream? Well, here at Sea Change Radio we like to celebrate the dreamers, and in 2014 we profiled Solar Roadways, a hot new startup at the time, based on the wild idea of paving roads with solar panels. There were critics who pooh-poohed the idea, but there were also a lot of us who fell in love with it.
