first_imgWood Mackenzie: Ohio set to lead Midwest solar development in next five years FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:As we’ve noted before, Ohio is not the first state that most people think of when they think solar. At the end of last year the state had only 202 MWdc installed, placing it in the bottom half of installed capacity nationally, and SEIA’s project database did not show any larger than 20 MW.Despite this humble start, Wood Mackenzie ranks Ohio as the top state in the Midwest for solar development over the next five years, and a look at the status of some of the leading projects explains why.Last Thursday the Ohio Power Siting Board approved Open Road Renewables’ 150 MWac Willowbrook Solar Farm, planned for 2,200 acres in Highland and Brown Counties. This follows on OPSB’s approval of Open Road’s 200 MWac Hillcrest Solar farm. When two more projects by Invenergy are included, OPSB has given its blessing to 625 MW of projects since the beginning of 2018.But these are not all that are underway. OPSB is currently considering Hecate Energy’s Highland Solar Farm, a monster 300MWac project planned for Highland County near the Kentucky border. Significantly, Highland Solar already holds a power purchase agreement (PPA). Additionally, Tradewind Energy has received an interconnection agreement from grid operator PJM Interconnection for three separate phases of its Pickaway County Solar project, which together total 150 MWac.Added altogether, these six projects total 1,075 MWac of solar, many times what is currently online in the state. However, it is not clear that any of these have begun construction at this time, and many have not secured all the necessary approvals.While all of these projects are planned to be connected to the grid by the end of 2021, it is not clear which ones will make it. But with this many big projects this close to being finalized, there are good odds that one or several large solar projects will break ground in coming months.More: Big solar is coming to Ohiolast_img read more

first_imgIt’s funny to think how quickly a year passes by.At the onset, 365 days seems like an eternity. In the thick of cabin fever, summer feels like it’ll never come. When it finally does, we’re already longing for cooler, humidity-free autumn days, wood stoves, and apple cider.But pump the brakes. Slow down and look back. A lot went down in 2014, from environmental disasters to record-breaking feats of athleticism. In honor of the year past and the year-to-come, here are 10 highlights from 2014 and 10 of our own predictions for the new year.Remember when…1. … over 300,000 West Virginia residents were left without clean water thanks to a Freedom Industries tank that leaked coal-processing chemicals into the Elk River in January?2. … in February, another chemical spill, this time a coal ash spill into North Carolina’s Dan River, became the nation’s third-largest coal ash spill ever? There was enough toxic sludge released into the water to fill 73 Olympic-sized swimming pools.3. … five-year-old Christian Thomas, aka Buddy Backpacker, became the youngest little guy to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail?4. … two rivers in the Carolinas, South Carolina’s South Fork of the Edisto and North Carolina’s Haw River, made it onto American Rivers’ annual list of America’s Most Endangered Rivers?5. … two regional whitewater kayaking superstars, Dane Jackson (Tenn.) and Adrienne Levknecht (S.C.), took podiums at the world renown Whitewater Grand Prix in Canada? Dane became a 3x Whitewater Grand Prix Champion and Adrienne finished third in the women’s category.6. … BRO editor-in-chief Will Harlan published his highly acclaimed biography on Cumberland Island’s Carol Ruckdeschel? The book, titled Untamed: The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland Island, would go on to make Barnes and Noble’s 18 Discover Great New Writers list.7. … Vibram USA agreed to pay a total of $3.75 million to consumers who bought its FiveFingers shoes to settle a lawsuit made in 2012?8. … Oskar Blues Brewery REEB Ranch opened The Bike Farm outside of Brevard, N.C., and hosted the 2014 Red Bull Dreamline.9. … a fire broke out in the New River Gorge and burned over 130 acres near the popular climbing area Endless Wall?10. … Canaan Valley, W.Va., resident John Logar won the prestigious Iditarod Trail Invitational by foot?A look ahead…We polled our staff to see what their predictions were for the 2015 year. Here are 10 things we anticipate the new year will bring.1. The death of The Beard.“With the coining of the term lumber-sexual I think we can all agree that this latest trend in the urban-male’s fragile sense of masculinity has jumped the shark. Next year? Back to perms and a single diamond stud earring. Or maybe a lighting bolt. I’m getting a lighting bolt.” – Craig Snodgrass, BRO web director2. SUP will make a play to become an Olympic sport.If trampolining and race walking can, why not stand-up paddle boarding?3. GoPro releases yet another version of the Hero.“Duh.” – Jess Daddio, BRO travel editor4. Natural fitness will explode.McDougall’s new book, Natural Born Heroes, is coming out.5. Hunting will become more attractive to urbanites and merge with the farm to table movement.6. The craft beer bubble pops.“We used up all the damn hops. Too many brewers and not enough hop farmers causes the price of craft brews to skyrocket. Big-Booze sweeps in and buys up remaining hop farms, with a resource shortage small time crafters are choked out. Budweiser releases its first IPA.” – Craig Snodgrass, BRO web director7. Aged rums will become “the new bourbon.”8. Axe throwing will become even more of a thing.9. Cellphones will get even larger.And maybe even the word “cellphone” will become obsolete. After all, they’re more computer than phone.10. Thru-hiking sees record numbers.“If you’re wanting to tackle the A.T. or the P.C.T., maybe give it another year. Thanks to the releases of Wild and A Walk in The Woods, expect hordes of wannabe Cheryl Strayeds and Bill Brysons to hit the trail this season…” – Jess Daddio, BRO travel editor###What do you think? Any regional highlights we missed? Any predictions you agree or don’t agree with (or want to add to the pot)? We’d love to hear from you!last_img read more

The agency has proposed $298.2 million in spending for 2018, up modestly from its restated 2017 budget.The budget briefing will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern today.During her testimony, Zook plans to thank the NCUA for its leadership and transparent budget process. However, she notes that Money One FCU and many other credit unions are concerned about the agency’s inclination to spend more of credit unions’ monies that could be used to better serve their members.The agency has proposed an even larger budget for 2019 than 2018 – $302.8 million in spending – which amounts to a near-doubling of the NCUA’s budget in a decade, despite a consolidating industry.center_img NCUA headquarterslast_img read more
