    QUICK NEWS, September 2: OFFSHORE WIND CHEAPER THAN SOLAR; CALIF BILL WOULD UP GEOTHERMAL’S VALUE; FACT-CHECK ON SMART BUILDINGS

    OFFSHORE WIND CHEAPER THAN SOLAR The Truth-O-Meter Says Mostly True: Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski says offshore wind power cheaper than solar power in R.I.

    August 31, 2013 (PolitiFact Rhode Island)

    “…PolitiFact Rhode Island rated as False a statement by Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski that offshore wind power is ‘significantly less expensive than solar energy.’ …We based that ruling on a comparison of the estimated price of Deepwater’s planned 1,000 megawatt wind farm with a recent contract price for a solar project in Rhode Island. Deepwater Wind objected to the ruling, pointing to contract prices of several other Rhode Island solar projects. Based on that information and a second review, we have changed our ruling to Mostly True…” click here for more

    August 28, 2013 (Jones Lang LaSalle)

    "Smart buildings have been proven to save energy, streamline facilities management and prevent expensive equipment failures…Smart building technology investments typically pay for themselves within one or two years…often can detect when a piece of equipment is close to failure and alert facilities… maximize energy efficiency from building systems…have demonstrated the return on investment in smart technologies…gather data from disparate systems produced by any manufacturer…[and are] often easier to operate and maintain than a building that lacks automated systems…” click here for more
