    QUICK NEWS, August 5: UTILITIES AND NEW ENERGY; NEW ENERGY WANTS ‘FACTS’ TRANSMISSION; WIND BUILDER TO BUILD BRIDGE FOR RURALS

    UTILITIES AND NEW ENERGY More Utilities Are Shifting to Renewable Energy

    Bill DiBenedetto, July 30, 2014 TriplePundit

    “The ‘new reality’ facing electricity consumers and their utility companies is that renewable energy is meeting an increasingly larger share of U.S. energy needs, according to [Benchmarking Clean Energy Deployment 2014] from Ceres and Clean Edge…[Wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, waste heat and small-scale hydroelectric were] 49 percent of new U.S. electric generating capacity in 2012…[T]he nation’s 32 largest electric utilities and their local subsidiaries…[were] were benchmarked on three major indicators of clean energy deployment…Renewable energy sales, or the total amount of renewable electricity sold to retail customers…Cumulative annual energy efficiency savings...[and] Incremental annual energy efficiency savings, or the energy savings from new programs or new participants in existing programs…[W]ide disparities were found in the extent to which electric utilities currently deliver renewable energy and energy efficiency, the report says…[NV Energy, Xcel Energy, PG&E, Sempra Energy and Edison International] of the 32 companies included in the report accounted for nearly 54 percent of renewable energy sales…SCANA, Southern Company, Dominion Resources, AES and Entergy…[accounted] for less than 2 percent of each of their total retail electricity sales…” click here for more

    NEW ENERGY WANTS ‘FACTS’ TRANSMISSION Renewable Energy Pushing Utilities & Grid Operators To Invest In FACTS

    Joshua S. Hill, July 30, 2014 Clean Technica

    “Though the first flexible alternating current transmission systems (FACTS) were implemented in electric grids in the 1920s, the recent surge in renewable energy deployment has rapidly increased their demand…[A]ccording to a new report compiled by Navigant Research, utilities and grid operators are soon to be investing more than $42 billion into FACTS between 2014 and 2022…Flexible alternating current transmission systems mitigate drops in voltage across a power grid…[W]ith the recent increase in renewable energy sources being installed across energy grids the world over, FACTS have become a necessity…The study also showed that the FACTS industry will surpass $5 billion in annual revenue worldwide by 2022…” click here for more

    WIND BUILDER TO BUILD BRIDGE FOR RURALS Livermore 'friends' pleased with potential settlement from Groton Wind project

    Dan Seufert, July 29 New Hamphire Union-Leader

    “…[New Hampshire officials have] negotiated a settlement in which a local wind power company would donate $150,000 to the Livermore Falls [walking bridge] project….[The Livermore Falls Chapter of Friends of the Pemi] has been studying way to improve and enhance the [waterfalls, cliffs and beaches along the river below the historic Pumpkin Seed Bridge and the towns of Campton, Plymouth and Holderness] for public use [since last year]. One idea was building the new bridge next to the historic Pumpkin Seed Bridge…Iberdrola Renewables’ Groton Wind LLC wind-energy plant has agreed to give the committee $150,000 as part of a settlement with the state’s Site Evaluation Committee…” click here for more
