Strathmore Snapshot

Strathmore is one of the largest holders of in-ground uranium resources in the United States. The Company’s goal is to become a leading uranium producer in the United States. Its core projects are located in the two largest historical uranium producing regions: the Grants Uranium District in New Mexico and the Gas Hills Uranium District in Wyoming.

Strathmore is advancing two core uranium development projects towards production: Roca Honda in New Mexico and the Gas Hills in Wyoming. In 2007, Roca Honda was partnered with Sumitomo Corp of Japan under the jointly owned subsidiary Roca Honda Resources LLC (“RHR”). In October 2009, RHR submitted its Roca mine permit application. A mine permit decision is expected in 2013. In February 2012, Strathmore optioned its Gas Hills uranium development project to Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO). KEPCO can earn-in up to 40% of the Gas Hills by incurring expenditures of US $32 million over three years beginning in 2013. Strathmore expects to submit its Gas Hills mine permit application this year.

In February, KEPCO completed a US $8 million common share private placement at a price of C$0.55 per share. In May, Strathmore acquired Saratoga Gold Company Ltd and its “Copper King” gold-copper project in Wyoming. KEPCO is Strathmore’s largest shareholder with an 11.8% equity stake. – See more at:

Mapped: Renewable Energy and Battery Installations in the U.S. in 2023

This graphic describes new U.S. renewable energy installations by state along with nameplate capacity, planned to come online in 2023.

Renewable energy, in particular solar power, is set to shine in 2023. This year, the U.S. plans to get over 80% of its new energy installations from sources like battery, solar, and wind.

The above map uses data from EIA to highlight planned U.S. renewable energy and battery storage installations by state for 2023.

Total U.S. renewable energy and battery installations, broken down by share

Texas and California Leading in Renewable Energy

Nearly every state in the U.S. has plans to produce new clean energy in 2023, but it’s not a surprise to see the two most populous states in the lead of the pack.

Even though the majority of its power comes from natural gas, Texas currently leads the U.S. in planned renewable energy installations. The state also has plans to power nearly 900,000 homes using new wind energy.

California is second, which could be partially attributable to the passing of Title 24, an energy code that makes it compulsory for new buildings to have the equipment necessary to allow the easy installation of solar panels, battery storage, and EV charging.

New solar power in the U.S. isn’t just coming from places like Texas and California. In 2023, Ohio will add 1,917 MW of new nameplate solar capacity, with Nevada and Colorado not far behind.

The state of New York is also looking to become one of the nation’s leading renewable energy providers. The New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) is making real strides towards this objective with 11% of the nation’s new wind power projects expected to come online in 2023.

According to the data, New Hampshire is the only state in the U.S. that has no new utility-scale renewable energy installations planned for 2023. However, the state does have plans for a massive hydroelectric plant that should come online in 2024.

Decarbonizing Energy

Renewable energy is considered essential to reduce global warming and CO2 emissions.

In line with the efforts by each state to build new renewable installations, the Biden administration has set a goal of achieving a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035 and a net zero emissions economy by no later than 2050.

The EIA forecasts the share of U.S. electricity generation from renewable sources rising from 22% in 2022 to 23% in 2023 and to 26% in 2024.
