    QUICK NEWS, February 13: Infrastructure Spend Fails To Prepare For Changing Climate; Pennsylvania Loves Solar Job Growth; Pennsylvania Wind Moves Nestle Toward 100% New Energy

    Infrastructure Spend Fails To Prepare For Changing Climate Trump's infrastructure plan may ignore climate change. It could be costly.

    Dan Drollete, Jr., 12 February 2018 (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists)

    The White House’s $1.5 trillion infrastructure building plan transfers $1.3 trillion of the cost to state, local, and private sources. Along with the administration’s discounted climate science and weakened climate change regulations, engineers and researchers say it leaves the new build plans obsolete and vulnerable to rapidly changing flood patterns and extremes of weather. prepare U.S. infrastructure for this century’s climate change-driven chaos. The White House has been unwilling to say whether climate realities were considered in the preparation of its infrastructure plan. click here for more

    “…Jobs in Pennsylvania’s solar sector increased by 26 percent to nearly 4,000 people in 2017…It was the second consecutive year of employment growth after three years of declines, a sign that solar-friendly policies at the state level — and falling equipment prices encouraging more installations — are making their mark…The gains come as the national solar workforce declined by 4 percent, the first annual drop since the group began releasing job counts in 2010…[Larger installers and manufacturers are also threatened by new] tariffs on solar imports…[But solar] jobs went up in 29 states…[showing] that solar is taking hold across the country…[I]n 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection gathered input from solar advocates on policy changes that would help spur growth. Gov. Tom Wolf has said he wants to boost solar generation to at least 10 percent of in-state electricity sales by 2030…” click here for more

    Pennsylvania Wind Moves Nestle Toward 100% New Energy Nestlé Leverages Wind Power in Partnership with EDP Renewables in Step Toward 100% Renewable Electricity Goal; Power purchase agreement will provide approximately 80 percent of the electricity load for five Nestlé facilities in southeastern Pennsylvania

    February 12, 2018 (Nestle via PR Newswire)

    “…[A new 15-year power purchase agreement for wind power] will provide approximately 80 percent of the electricity load for five Nestlé facilities in southeastern Pennsylvania. The agreement is a major step forward for Nestlé's ambition to procure 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources…EDP Renewables' Meadow Lake VI wind farm will generate and deliver 50 megawatts of electricity through the PJM Interconnection grid to manufacturing facilities and distribution centers operated by Nestlé Purina PetCare, Nestlé USA and Nestlé Waters North America in Allentown and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Because the wind farm and the recipient facilities are located on the same regional grid, the power purchase agreement provides traceability from the Pennsylvania facilities back to the wind farm. With the addition of the energy from the wind farm, 20 percent of the electricity Nestlé uses in the U.S. will come from renewable sources in 2019…This renewable energy project will help Nestlé cut energy costs, avoid the volatility of fossil fuel prices, and stay competitive…” click here for more
