    The Climate Fight Among Deniers Fighting Climate Change in a Red State

    Ryan F, Mandelbaum, September 8, 2017 (GizModo)

    “…Georgia’s right wing government that recently attempted to pass an anti-LGBT “religious freedom” bill, its Paris Accord exit-supporting senators and Bible Belt location make its largest city, Atlanta, feel like a progressive island in a sea red with conservative ideals…[There’s a long and bumpy road ahead for those in the U.S.] hoping to fight the effects of climate change and build more sustainable cities…

    ...[According to Estimating economic damage from climate change in the United States], the worst effects of climate change will come] in the Southern United States, places with lawmakers who deny humans’ influence on the changing climate and are uninterested in supporting the fight. That means a passionate few need to take on the burden…Scientists and other climate experts are banding together in Atlanta with allies throughout the state to do what they can…Together, many of these advocates are drafting a plan for whenever or not the rest of the state is ready to join them…” click here for more

    Wind Builders Testing Battery Energy Storage Wind turbine manufacturers are dipping toes into energy storage projects; Vestas said to be working with Tesla, and that just caps off a busy summer.

    Megan Geuss, September 6, 2017 (Ars Technica)

    “…[Vestas Wind Systems, one of the biggest makers of wind turbines in the world, is] looking into building wind turbines with battery storage onsite…[It] is working on 10 projects that will add storage to wind installations, and Tesla is collaborating on at least one of those projects…[T]he efforts to combine wind turbines with battery storage offer a glimpse into how the wind industry might change in the future…[This news] is just one datapoint] about wind and storage projects. In August, offshore wind developer Deepwater Wind announced that it would pair a 144MW offshore wind farm planned for the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts, with a 40MWh battery storage system from Tesla. Construction on that project is set to end sometime in 2022…Spanish wind power company Acciona recently connected two Samsung lithium-ion batteries to a 3-megawatt turbine in Spain, Dong installed a battery on the UK coastline in June to store some offshore wind energy, and Statoil will include a 1MWh lithium-ion battery in its designs for a floating offshore wind farm that will be completed in late 2018…” click here for more

    Navajo Nation Grows Solar Navajo Nations first solar project now producing enough electricity for about 13,000 homes

    August 29, 2017 (AP via AZ Central)

    “A giant array of solar panels near the famed sandstone buttes of Monument Valley has begun producing electricity for the Navajo Nation at a time when the tribe is bracing for the loss of hundreds of jobs from the impending closure of a nearby coal-fired power plant…The Kayenta Solar Facility is the first utility-scale solar project on the Navajo Nation, producing enough electricity to power about 13,000 Navajo homes…The plant comes at a time when the area's energy landscape is shifting…The coal-fired Navajo Generating Station near Page is set to close in December 2019, leaving a site that both tribal and private entities say has the potential for renewable energy development…The Navajo Tribal Utility Authority, which owns the solar plant, said the project advances clean energy on the reservation long known for fossil fuel development…[It should prove] to investors, developers and tribal communities that renewable energy projects are possible on the reservation…” click here for more
