The International Energy Agency recently stated that solar was set to overtake the amount of investment going into oil production for the first time. The IEA’s World Energy Investment report said solar investments were expected to attract over $1 billion a day in 2023. For every dollar invested in fossil fuels, about 1.7 dollars are now going into clean energy – a jump from a one-to-one ratio just five years ago.
A perturbation in the jet stream proximate to the East Coast will result in an active weather pattern, with several opportunities for precipitation and temperatures that are near to below average through the upcoming week. In Texas, temperatures will continue to rise throughout the weekend, and cooling demand is projected to exceed normal levels through the end of the month, with highs reaching 100°F in most cities next week. The Midwest will experience warm and pleasant weather until early next week, with model projections indicating slightly warmer temperatures for the 11-15 day period. In the West, temperatures are expected to remain near to below average throughout the region for the next week. Cooling demand in California and the Desert Southwest will be somewhat below normal due to a dominant Pacific flow that maintains persistent marine cloud cover near coastal areas.
