    QUICK NEWS, July 20: THE POWER OF IOWA WIND; OBAMA PLAN GROWS SOLAR'S POLITICAL PUNCH; AN EV CHARGER ON WHEELS

    THE POWER OF IOWA WIND Report: Wind could supply 40 percent of Iowa energy by 2020

    Donnelle Eller, July 16, 2015 (Des Moines Register)

    “Iowa could…push its wind-energy mix to 41 percent in 2020 and supply enough power to more than match its energy usage by 2030, with excess energy to export to other states, [according to A Wind Vision for New Growth in Iowa] the American Wind Energy Association said…[That] could create significant benefits for the environment and economy…Iowa consumers could save $3.68 billion in lower electricity bills through 2050…[and] boost property tax revenues for government services $49.1 million annually by 2020 and nearly $137 million annually by 2030…Farmers, ranchers and landowners could see land lease payments climb from $17.1 million annually to nearly $20 million annually by 2020 to $55.5 million annually by 2030…[and] Iowa could save on the amount of water used to generate energy…[and add] 1,400 on-site construction, operations and maintenance jobs by 2030…” click here for more

    OBAMA PLAN GROWS SOLAR'S POLITICAL PUNCH Super-charge the solar power boom

    Van Jones, July 17, 2015 (CNN)

    “There's a solar power boom in America…[but] not enough Americans are seeing the benefits…[T]he Obama administration is doing something about it. The solar industry and other government leaders have joined in, but they need to step up even more. And the big polluters should stand down…Until now, unless you were a typically affluent homeowner with a good credit score to help you get a loan…[solar was] mostly out of reach…If we want to stop climate disruption, we need everyone on board…We can't win political fights against the polluters who want to maintain the old fossil-fuel economy unless we have a big, broad, diverse coalition of stakeholders -- people of every class and color who are directly enjoying the benefits…[O]n July 7 the Obama administration announced a new initiative designed to help deploy solar power in low and moderate-income neighborhoods… More solar energy also means more [solar jobs and] money in our pockets…President Obama made a bold move by opening the door of opportunity for more Americans. Now we need to make sure dirty energy companies don't shut it.” click here for more

    AN EV CHARGER ON WHEELS This Mobile Charging Station Fixes Two Major Problems With Electric Cars

    Christian de Looper, July 17, 2015 (Tech Times)

    “…[C]harging an electric car just got a lot easier, with…charging stations that have wheels and can come to the car, eliminating both the problem of charging stations having to be built in the first place and the problem of cars sitting at a station after being fully charged…[The Mobi Charger, built by a startup Freewire,] looks like a food cart. It can charge a car in only 30 minutes…[It] uses batteries from old electric cars from Nissan…[and is] in talks with BMW and GM…The system is extremely easy to use…” click here for more
