    QUICK NEWS, June 10: EPA CLIMATE PLAN CREATES JOBS; HAWAII SOLAR SLOWS; GE RE-DESIGNS THE WIND TURBINE

    EPA CLIMATE PLAN CREATES JOBS Study: EPA climate rule would create jobs

    Devin Henry, June 9, 2015 (The Hill)

    “The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions at power plants will end up creating more jobs than it cuts…The EPA has previously estimated that the plan [requiring existing power plants to cut their greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a cleaner supply of energy] would create 120,000 jobs by 2020 but lead to 24,000 job loses as plants move away from fossil fuel energy sources…[According to [A Comprehensive Analysis of the Employment Impacts of the EPA’s Proposed Clean Power Plan from the Economic Policy Institute]…the jobs both lost and gained would have ‘a substantial ripple effect’ in other industries. The plan would lead to a net increase of 360,000 new jobs by 2020…By 2030, the deadline for state compliance with Clean Power Plan greenhouse gas reduction targets, the plan's employment benefits will have wained, to the point where it would have created a net increase of 24,342 jobs total…” click here for more

    HAWAII SOLAR SLOWS Hawaii drops out of top 10 in solar energy installations, new report says

    Duane Shimogawa, June 9, 2015 (Pacific Business News)

    “Hawaii has dropped out of the top 10 in the nation when it comes to solar photovoltaic installations…[but] the Aloha State managed to rank seventh in the United States in terms of cumulative solar energy installations…[Though it] ranked ninth overall in the first quarter of 2014, [Hawaii] dropped two spots to 11th in the first quarter of this year…To date, Hawaii has 52,211 individual residential installations and 2,550 commercial installations…Looking ahead, the Solar Energy Industries Association/GTM Research project that the state will end up with 48-megawatts of residential solar capacity in 2015, down 21 percent from 2014…In terms of its commercial market, which does not include utility-scale projects, the report projects that Hawaii will install 38 megawatts of solar in 2015, up 18 percent from 2014…” click here for more

    GE RE-DESIGNS THE WIND TURBINE GE's new dome-shaped wind turbine generates more electricity

    Carl DeStassio, June 9, 2015 (Inhabitat)

    “…GE’s new ecoROTR offers such [a technological] advancement…The dome-shaped attachment allows this turbine to capture wind energy that is lost by standard turbines…The new wind turbine design promises a 3 percent increase in performance which, when multiplied over the entire turbine array, totals a substantial amount of additional energy generation. Standing 450 feet tall, the new turbine is still a peculiar-looking experiment…The dome-shaped addition, affixed to the center of the turbine, deflects wind that would have otherwise passed right through the blades…[and] channels that air outward to the blades…” click here for more
