SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ForeFront Power and Los Altos School District (LASD) in California celebrated the completion of solar canopy systems across nine District schools today. The ceremony at Oak Avenue Elementary School also included Sunworks, the primary construction contractor, and TerraVerde Energy, the District's procurement consultant. The 1.4-megawatt (MW) portfolio is now delivering clean, renewable energy to the schools at a price below their grid rate.

LASD is receiving solar energy at no upfront cost and without the use of bond funds using a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) framework with ForeFront Power. Through a PPA, ForeFront Power is responsible for all project financing, engineering, construction, operations, and maintenance for a 20-year project term. As a result, the solar portfolio is expected to save the District over $175,000 annually and up to $2.7 million within the first ten years of operation.

"The Los Altos School District has a history of financial prudence and commitment to providing top-notch education for every single one of our students. The completion of this project immediately begins a cost savings that will contribute to quality education in all of our schools," said Superintendent, Jeff Baier.

Understanding the importance of a stable learning environment, ForeFront Power coordinated closely with LASD to construct and complete the systems during the school year with minimal impact to school activities.

"Not only were our projects successfully completed, but we also gained infrastructure for future electric vehicle charging and improved ADA compliance. The cost savings are crucial and a great benefit for our students and teachers," said LASD Chief Business Official Randy Kenyon. "The ForeFront Power team went above and beyond the original project scope."

ForeFront Power included Data Acquisition Systems (DAS) that integrate with online system performance monitoring software and flat screen televisions that were installed in the front office of each school. All schools will also receive free solar energy lesson plans and curricula through ForeFront Power's exclusive partnership with Schools Power. These lesson plans promote a technical understanding of solar energy as well as career and college readiness training to prepare the next generation of leaders for solar jobs.

"These projects highlight our desire to fully integrate solar energy into the learning environment at each school," said ForeFront Power Chief Strategy Officer, Daniel Taylor. "From shade on the playground to hands-on activities in the classroom, we hope students will understand the myriad impacts of on-site solar energy."

These nine solar projects are expected to offset the equivalent of 1,754 tons of carbon dioxide avoidance or 336 cars taken off the road for the first year of production – per the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator.

In this report, Technavio highlights the rise in deployment of microgrids as one of the key emerging trends in the global solar cover glass market:

Rise in the deployment of microgrids

Microgrids are energy systems that are combined with several sources of energy such as wind, solar, geothermal, and fossil fuels, thus negating the disadvantage of conventional grids. These grids are constructed with the aim to provide power to an entire local community, university, or a military base.

“Microgrids aid in overcoming the intermittency issue of solar power as they are equipped with storage systems for backups. They are usually used as substitutes for larger energy grids in case of emergency situations such as natural calamities. During the forecast period, the rise in the number of microgrid projects is expected to increase the demand for solar PV systems and subsequently the demand for solar glass,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.

In this report, Technavio highlights the rise in deployment of microgrids as one of the key emerging trends in the global solar cover glass market:

Rise in the deployment of microgrids

Microgrids are energy systems that are combined with several sources of energy such as wind, solar, geothermal, and fossil fuels, thus negating the disadvantage of conventional grids. These grids are constructed with the aim to provide power to an entire local community, university, or a military base.

“Microgrids aid in overcoming the intermittency issue of solar power as they are equipped with storage systems for backups. They are usually used as substitutes for larger energy grids in case of emergency situations such as natural calamities. During the forecast period, the rise in the number of microgrid projects is expected to increase the demand for solar PV systems and subsequently the demand for solar glass,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of Tampa Electric’s commitment to clean energy, the utility is making significant changes to our Big Bend Power Station:

  • We will modernize Unit 1, after 50 years of operation, and will use natural gas combined-cycle technology, which will eliminate coal as this unit’s fuel.
  • We will retire Unit 2 in 2021, after 48 years of operation.

“This project will improve the land, water and air emissions at Big Bend,” said Nancy Tower, president and chief executive officer of Tampa Electric. “Coupled with our significant increase in solar power, these changes will make Tampa Electric substantially cleaner and greener than it is today. This investment in cleaner generation will also provide significant savings to customers through lower expenses for fuel and maintenance of the existing units.”

The project will reuse existing equipment, including the cooling system, which will continue to produce the warm water that attracts manatees to the power station’s discharge canal each winter.

The $853 million Big Bend project will repower Big Bend Unit 1 with state-of-the-art combined-cycle technology. When complete in 2023, the project will be capable of producing 1,090 MW in a two-on-one format. The units were originally designed to burn coal, and in recent years we added natural gas as a secondary fuel to all four units. As part of this investment, Big Bend Unit 2 will be retired in 2021.

This will significantly change the company’s fuel mix. In 2017, 67 percent of Tampa Electric’s energy was generated from natural gas, 24 percent was from coal and about 9 percent was from other sources, including solar. In 2023, it will be 75 percent natural gas, 12 percent coal, about 7 percent solar, and about 6 percent other sources.

On April 18, Tampa Electric filed a Site Certification Application with the Department of Environmental Protection to approve the modernization of Big Bend Unit 1. We expect approval in May 2019.

This significant project is part of the company’s strategy to reduce our carbon footprint, which started in 1999 with the repowering of the former coal-fired Gannon Station to natural gas, and most recently included the expansion of the Polk Power Station’s natural gas units to combined cycle. This is consistent with Emera’s strategic focus of transitioning power generation to less carbon intensity while remaining affordable for our customers.

We also recently announced plans to dramatically increase the amount of solar power in our generating fleet. During the next three years, Tampa Electric will add 6 million solar panels in 10 new photovoltaic solar projects, making us the Florida utility with the highest percentage of solar power by 2021.

Tampa Electric, one of Florida’s largest investor-owned electric utilities, serves about 750,000 customers in West Central Florida. Tampa Electric is a subsidiary of Emera Inc., a geographically diverse energy and services company headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

LG Electronics USA is taking its “Life’s Good” mantra to the four-day 2018 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, on June 7-10, with the first-of-its-kind “LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap, Powered by LG”

The 3,600-square-foot destination, created and produced in collaboration with Live Nation's experiential marketing team, will be located in the heart of the 700-acre outdoor camping festival and will feature a cutting-edge wash'n'fold service outfitted with a total of 50 LG washing machines and dryers along with LG Styler clothing care systems, among other interactive elements. The air-conditioned lounge also will be equipped with mobile phone charging stations, interactive gaming stations featuring LG OLED TVs, indoor and outdoor hangout spots and more. The experience is open to all festival goers, compliments of LG, the Official Washing Machine and Official TV partner of Bonnaroo 2018.

"At LG, we want to make everyday life more fun with our cutting-edge innovations that work hard so consumers can spend more time enjoying those 'life's good' moments," said Dave VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "At this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, we're demonstrating the power of LG washing machines and inviting festival goers to go ahead and have fun, be themselves and #GetDirty – because no matter how dirty or busy life gets, LG can take care of them on the dance floor and at home."

LaundROO Lounge: The Ultimate Space to Refresh Your Mind, Body – and Wardrobe

  • Wash'n'Fold: The LG LaundROO Lounge will feature 25 washing machines and 25 dryers as well as LG Styler steam clothing care systems; festival attendees camping on site can drop off their clothing for a classic – and complimentary – wash'n'fold experience before returning to the dance floor. Each load of laundry will journey through LG's industry-leading laundry appliances delivering the best clean around.
  • Vintage Clothing Swap: LG has tapped the expertise of much-beloved vintage shop What Goes Around Comes Around to source 2,500 pieces of clothing for a unique onsite swap. Festival goers are encouraged to visit with stylists at the LaundROO Lounge to choose a look from the LG closet that best captures their festival identity. Visitors will swap out their own clothing, which will then be washed in LG washing machines and dryers before going on the rack for other festival goers to peruse, ensuring a constantly replenished and fresh selection of items. Remaining clothing will be cleaned and donated to a local charitable partner at the end of the festival.

Made in Tennessee
Middle Tennessee is the U.S. home of LG home appliances. Dovetailing with its leading role at the 2018 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, LG is nearing completion of its $250 million washing machine plant in nearby Clarksville in Montgomery County. The new million-square-foot factory, expected to be the world's most advanced washing machine production plant, will bring 600 full-time jobs to the area. Starting later this year, the factory will begin producing front- and top-load washing machines with the ability to produce more than one million LG washers annually.
