Solar Industry Sees Post-Hurricane Opportunity in Puerto Rico

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg News:The solar industry has taken particular interest in San Juan in the aftermath of the hurricane. It’s primarily a humanitarian effort for these companies, but it’s also a chance to showcase an energy source capable of enduring natural disasters. Tesla Inc. is sending its Powerwall battery systems and Sunrun has sent more than 12,000 pounds of solar products and equipment to the island. The Solar Energy Industries Association has received pledges for more than $1.2 million in product and monetary contributions from its network. Some hope the crisis will spur greater energy self-reliance. “We should be more flexible, to allow regions to have their own systems,” said Marco Antonio Rigau, president of San Juan’s city council, in an interview. “We are not using solar energy completely.”Sunrun is using these charitable installations, that will allow the firehouses to produce their own power for lights and communications equipment, as a test for setting up more microgrids around the island, said Chris Rauscher, director of public policy for the company. Providing storage is crucial at this point; solar panels alone can’t provide round-the-clock power. With the grid down, existing panels atop Puerto Rico homes and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. stores that are affiliated with utility Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or Prepa, have failed to operate. Houston-based Sunnova Energy Corp., which has 10,000 residential customers in Puerto Rico who depend on Prepa, is asking battery providers to send shipments to the island on the expectation that restrictions preventing their use will be eliminated. Chief Executive Officer John Berger said he met last week with Governor Ricardo Rossello for assistance “to cut the red tape to allow those batteries to come in and allow our customers to have power.”Getting the power back on is the current priority, Governor Ricardo Rosello told a Bloomberg News reporter in San Juan on Friday, but more thought must be given to the future of the energy grid. (He has already held an “initial conversation” with Elon Musk on the subject, he recently tweeted.) The island must “give ourselves an opportunity to not just rebuild the old system but rather to establish a platform so that we can consider microgrids” and other uses of renewable sources, he said.More: Solar Industry Wants to Build Puerto Rico’s Grid of the Future Solar Industry Sees Post-Hurricane Opportunity in Puerto Ricolast_img read more

Indiana utility Nipsco signs with NextEra for 300MW of solar capacity in coal-free drive

first_imgIndiana utility Nipsco signs with NextEra for 300MW of solar capacity in coal-free drive FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renewables Now:Northern Indiana Public Service Company LLC (NIPSCO), a subsidiary of US utility NiSource Inc., has concluded off-take deals with NextEra Energy Resources LLC involving around 300 MW of solar capacity in Indiana.NIPSCO and units of NextEra Energy Resources, which is in turn part of NextEra Energy Inc., have signed two 20-year purchase power agreements (PPAs). They will see NIPSCO get the electricity from two photovoltaic (PV) parks that will be installed in central Indiana, the energy provider said on Friday.The new solar plants, namely the 200-MW Brickyard Solar and 100-MW Greensboro Solar, are planned to go live by the middle of 2023. The particular projects were selected in a Request for Proposals (RFPs) that NIPSCO held at the end of 2019. The Greensboro solar farm will have 30 MW of integrated battery storage capacity.The off-take deals are part of NIPSCO’s strategy to deliver “more affordable, reliable and sustainable energy mix” and support the utility’s ambition to become coal-free by 2028. This goal will be achieved by adding more wind, solar and battery storage capacity to the company’s portfolio, it said, adding that more renewable projects will be announced later this year.[Veselina Petrova]More: NIPSCO seals solar PPAs for 300 MW with NextEralast_img read more

Half Ton Thru-Hike

first_img26-year-old Georgia native and wilderness guide Seth Orme was out hiking in Franklin, N.C. one afternoon when he started picking up little pieces of trash along the way. The crew hiking alongside him followed suit, and soon they found themselves with a pound of trash collectively. Orme thought about all of the litter living on our trail systems and wondered whether anyone had ever attempted to clean it up. One year later, during the summer of 2015, he decided to act. He set out on a journey with two friends to remove as much trail trash as possible while thru-hiking. Orme and two friends collected over 1,000 pounds of litter from the Appalachian Trail. They are continuing that mission on the Pacific Crest Trail this year.Each human generates on average around 4.7 pounds of waste each day, creating 750 million tons of garbage annually. With national park visitation in 2015 coming in at an all-time high at 307.2 million visits around the country last year alone, the outdoors are presented with a new set of challenges. Orme and his crew, aptly named Team Packing it Out, hope that by acting as outdoorsmen should and engaging the Leave No Trace ethic of packing out what you pack in on your adventures, that leading by example will create a lasting ripple effect.“We’re seeing continued increase in trail use with ‘A Walk in the Woods’ coming out last year and Cheryl Strayed’s ‘Wild’ which had similar effects for the PCT,” says Leave No Trace Education Director Ben Lawhon. “That leads to a lot of impact and certainly increased litter.”Enlight1_FIXIt was litter that initially sparked Orme to call up lifelong friend Joe Denhard whom he’d known since 8th grade and kayaked the Mississippi River with a few years earlier. He told him he wanted to clean as much trash as he could while thru-hiking the A.T. that summer. Denhard was in for the five-month challenge, and together they set out with a sea-kayaking guide Orme met a few years earlier, Paul Twedt.“I knew at that point in my life it was going to take something more, a bigger reason for me to quit my life for five months,” says Orme. “This idea had a strong enough pull for me. What if there is no trash? What if I can help?”On the eight-mile approach trail to Springer Mountain, Ga., they collected 19 pounds of trash. “Shaking our heads, thinking ‘what are we doing?’ we just kept telling each other to stay positive, realistic, and humble about whatever was going to happen,” said Orme.At Appalachian Trail Days in Damascus, Va., they talked with the crew at Granite Gear, including Granite Gear vice president of sales and marketing Rob Coughlin. “I talk to a million hikers a year, but the ambition they took to collect a half ton of trash while thru-hiking is the greatest hiking accomplishment I’ve heard in recent history,” says Coughlin. “You have a lot of guys out there doing speed records and things like that, which is great, but to go out there and remove mattresses off the trail is going well above and beyond.”Granite Gear paid for the rest of their hike in 2015 and signed them as official athletes for 2016. They outfitted them before they hit the trail in May and will be joining them at several stops along the way to create short videos. Orme says they’re not using any new or high-tech gear for this hike and didn’t on the A.T. either. Their method is simple—use trash grabbers and keep an arsenal of trash bags and mesh nylon sacks to grab all visible trash. They stubbed toiled paper into the ground using their hiking poles and handed off full trash bags to day hikers leaving the trail with cars or emptied them in the nearest town’s trash cans and recycling centers. They weighed their findings each day using a small luggage scale.“With some of the situations we got into with trash, I’m so glad we were all there together. When you find 70 pounds of mattresses it would be tough to carry that out solo. It was ridiculously hard with three people,” said Orme.“Each person that picks up a piece of litter while out there inspires someone else to and someone else and so on. It changes our collective ethic about being outdoors,” said Orme.last_img read more

Roku stock jumps after earnings beat and analysts raise price targets

first_img– Advertisement – — With reporting from CNBC’s Michael Bloom.Subscribe to CNBC PRO for access to the livestream of CNBC’s continuous election and business news coverage. The firm raised its price target to $300 from $185. The analysts said they anticipate the stock to make “further gains in the coming months.”Roku did not provide formal Q4 guidance but said it expects the quarter’s revenue to grow in the mid-40% range year over year. The streaming provider has largely benefitted from stay-at-home orders that caused people to seek out in-home entertainment. It’s also benefiting from the shift of viewing away from traditional TV channels as people cut the cord.“We remain Positive on ROKU as we view the company as one of the few ways to play the secular linear TV-to-digital engagement and ad budget shift, which is accelerating during the pandemic,” Susquehanna analysts wrote in a Friday note. The firm also raised its price target to $275 from $185.- Advertisement – The Roku 3 television streaming player menu is shown on a television in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013.Patrick T.

Curbing transmission on public transport not as simple as banning passengers: Experts

first_imgRead also: Three passengers of Bogor-Jakarta commuter line test positive for COVID-19Bogor Mayor Bima Arya Sugiarto said their priority was demanding the ministry temporarily halt commuter line services. In return, offices and factories that are still allowed to operate must provide shuttles for their employees.Another option, he said, was to lengthen commuter line operational hours and filter prospective passengers prior to entering the stations so as to reduce the number of passengers, which would improve physical distancing.“If this is the case, there has to be a selection mechanism for people who enter the stations. For instance, by showing an employment letter from their companies,” Bima said on Tuesday, as quoted by Antara news agency. “Therefore, people who just want to wander around [without urgency] cannot [board trains].”The appeals were made on Tuesday after the five Bodebek leaders discussed ways to prevent transmission of the virus on public transport.Three people tested positive for COVID-19 after they took a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in Bogor Station, one of the major stations in Greater Jakarta, last week. Three more passengers also tested positive in PCR testing in Bekasi Station on Tuesday, officials have said.All these passengers were asymptomatic, KCI spokesperson Anne Purba told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.Hermawan Saputra of the Indonesian Public Health Expert Association (IAKMI) said the vast commuter line network was the most vulnerable public transportation mode to coronavirus transmission because passengers would not be able to maintain physical distance on a crowded train during rush hours. Not to mention that respiratory droplets containing the virus may land on surfaces and persist up to several days inside the train, he said.The “rush-hour problem”, Anne said, had caused the KCI to impose additional restrictions for potential passengers aside from its regular COVID-19 mitigation measures — such as the mandatory mask-wearing and body temperature checks.“To improve discipline, starting on May 4, any trains that have a car filled with more than 60 passengers [or a fourfold decrease from the normal capacity per car] will not depart unless [passengers] reduce their numbers,” she said.She went on to say that KCI was open to cooperation with local administrations to “filter prospective passengers entering stations”.Hermawan said banning all non-urgent passengers from using commuter trains was one option, although at the same time he doubted the efficacy and questioned the methods to filter these passengers.“Here [in Indonesia], people always have excuses to defy new policies. Some people would always try to find excuses to board trains,” he said.He said suspending all commuter line services would be the better solution to contain the spread of the disease.Read also: Greater Jakarta to expand restrictions as existing measures deemed ineffectiveDeddy Herlambang, a researcher at the Transportation Study Institute (INSTRAN), said keeping all public transportation services running during the outbreak was crucial to even out the proportion of passengers across different modes of transportation.“Halting commuter line service would cause other public transportation modes to experience high demand. For instance, buses or motorcycle taxis,” he said.Any decisions, he said, would be ineffective if authorities failed to resolve the underlying causes of the problem — commuting workers who are struggling to make ends meet during the epidemic, people lacking discipline in adhering to physical distancing and social norms that dictate that attending an iftar meal with family at home is better than being alone.He suggested that authorities should look beyond the public health aspect and consider more social, economic and cultural factors.Topics : Since the epidemic hit Greater Jakarta, KCI has shortened its service hours to 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and reduced the number of daily trips from 991 to 761. These trains were mostly empty almost every day before Ramadan began on April 24, with only 10 percent of trains having been filled with a large number of passengers.But now, passengers numbers have been spiking on the last three trains before iftar at around 6 p.m., jeopardizing efforts to maintain physical distance between passengers.Fearing that passengers would continue defying orders to maintain distance, leaders of Greater Jakarta — five of Jakarta’s satellite cities, abbreviated as “Bodebek”, under the jurisdiction of the West Java administration — appealed to the central government to, once again, temporarily halt commuter line services.They are also planning to file a formal request to the Transportation Ministry in a bid to curb transmission in public transit systems after three potential railway passengers recently tested positive for COVID-19. Urban life is slowing down in Greater Jakarta, the region hit hardest by COVID-19, after authorities imposed large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in the past weeks.The outbreak has also largely reduced the number of commuter line passengers, but crowds of workers who cannot afford to work from home reportedly persist in certain stations and trains during rush hours.State-owned commuter line operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) recorded an average of 190,000 passengers a day on the Bogor-Jakarta and Bekasi-Jakarta routes during the outbreak, a decrease of around 80 percent from around 950,000 passengers on normal days.last_img read more

MICE organizers can work with COVID-19 task force to monitor health protocols: Tourism ministry

Last year, Indonesia welcomed a total of 17 million foreign visitors. (nkn) Titik said local administrations could request the deployment of COVID-19 task force officers at tourist destinations. Many tourist destinations and entertainment establishments in Batam have strictly applied a set of rules set by the ministry, which covers hygiene, health, safety and sustainability.The Kepri Coral marine resort in Batam, for example, has created an isolation unit for visitors.“We have a health clinic with an isolation facility,” said Kepri Coral general manager Eddy C Lumawe, adding that it was available for visitors who showed symptoms like coughing, fever and shortness of breath. The Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry has encouraged organizers of meeting, incentive, convention and exhibition (MICE) events and tourist destination operators to work closely with local COVID-19 task forces in implementing health protocols during the pandemic.Titik Lestari, the ministry’s coordinator for MICE, said most tourist destinations in the country were already applying health protocols but not all had proper monitoring teams to make sure they were properly implemented.“The monitoring can be applied to both guests and destination operators,” she said during an event in Batam as quoted by tempo.co on Saturday, adding that the COVID-19 task force had the ability to monitor.center_img Editor’s note: This article is part of a public campaign by the COVID-19 task force to raise the public’s awareness about the pandemic.

FL Deputy Accused of Planting Drugs During Stops

first_imgProsecutors have dropped charges in nearly 120 of Wester’s arrest cases.Williams says, “There is no question that Wester’s crimes were deliberate and that his actions put innocent people in jail.”Wester is facing felony charges of racketeering, official misconduct, fabricating evidence, possession of a controlled substance, and false imprisonment. In addition, he faces misdemeanor charges of perjury, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.He is being held without bond.The FDLE started investigating Wester last August at the request of the sheriff’s office. Officials with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement say they arrested a former deputy on Wednesday for apparently using his position to incriminate innocent people.According to Chris Williams, assistant special in charge for the FDLE in Pensacola, officers caught up with former Jackson County sheriff’s deputy Zachary Wester in the Panhandle after a year-long investigation.Wester allegedly pulled over drivers for minor traffic infractions on a regular basis, then planted drugs and arrested them on made-up drug charges.last_img read more
