Vermont Electric Co-op lights up two solar arrays

first_imgVermont Electric Cooperative, Inc,Encore Renewable Energy’s Magee Hill in Hinesburg. VEC photo.Vermont Business Magazine Vermont Electric Co-op (VEC) recently announced the opening of two new VEC Co-op Community Solar projects. The commissioning of the two solar projects – one in Hinesburg and one in Grand Isle – caps a two-year VEC effort to install long-term, cost-effective, solar arrays in three locations in VEC territory. The 1.3 megawatt Hinesburg project was developed by Encore Renewable Energy and the 4.9 megawatt Grand Isle project was developed by Bullrock Corporation. These projects build on the successful deployment of VEC’s first one-megawatt project in Alburgh, also developed with Encore Renewable Energy.The three projects are expected to generate about 11,000 megawatt-hours annually, the equivalent of about 1,700 homes’ average usage. Combined with other renewable resources, these projects will generate enough energy for VEC to meet its in-state renewable energy requirements through 2024.“It’s great to have all three of these projects up and running, delivering more renewable energy onto the grid,” said Christine Hallquist, chief executive officer of VEC. “This is an important accomplishment in helping us bring clean and cost-effective electricity to our members over the coming years.”The three arrays are part of VEC’s Co-op Community Solar program, which enables VEC members to support solar without installing an array on their own property. Participants make an upfront payment to sponsor panels for 10 or 20 years and receive bill credits back over the course of the sponsorship.For more information about Co-op Community Solar please call VEC at (802) 635-2331, email communitysolar@vermontelectric.coop(link sends e-mail), or visit www.vermontelectric.coop/community-solar(link is external).Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC), established in 1938, is a non-profit, member-owned electric distribution utility that provides safe, affordable, and reliable electric service to approximately 32,000 members in 75 communities in northern Vermont. Nationally recognized for innovative and advanced use of technology, VEC is the largest locally-owned electric distribution utility in Vermont.Source: VEC 1.11.2018last_img read more

Movescount social training

first_imgThe Suunto online sports community Movescount has been updated again with the inclusion of a new training program planner.Whether in training for a marathon, triathlon or other sporting event, or to lose those extra five pounds – the training programs are claimed to help athletes train more effectively and reach their targets.According to Suunto, ‘the coolest thing about the training program planner is that you can now share your training programs with other Movescount members.’ It works just like routes: when you create a training program, you can choose to make it public so that all Movescount members can see it and start using it.As more and more people share their training programs, Suunto sees that it will soon have a pool of hundreds, even thousands, of training programs to choose from. The training programs can be rated and discussed, ultimately making it easier to find the training program that suits you best.The creator of the best-rated training program (i.e. most thumbs up awarded) will be given a free Suunto t3d. This latest competition finishes on 15 September.Other new features at the updated Movescount site include: improved user search, summary of heart rate zones and editing of several ‘Moves’ at once.www.movescount.com www.suunto.com Relatedlast_img read more

Kansas Ethics Commission investigating complaints regarding robo-calls in District 29 race

first_imgJames Todd said his campaign has been in contact with the Kansas Ethics Commission regarding the complaints.The Kansas Ethics Commission is investigating complaints regarding a series of robo-calls made on behalf of James Todd’s run for the District 29 seat in the Kansas House.Todd, a Republican who held the seat before losing the 2016 election to Democrat Brett Parker, acknowledged today that he has been in contact with the commission regarding the issue. Under Kansas law, robo-calls must identify who they are paid for by at the beginning of the message. Three robo-calls fielded in the past several days have had the “paid for by” language at the end of the message. Here’s the audio from a call received by District 29 residents last Thursday:Audio Playerhttp://shawneemissionpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/New-Recording-3.m4a00:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.One of the messages was apparently paid for by a political action committee working to generate support for Todd’s campaign, but did not come from the campaign itself. As for the calls that went out from his campaign, Todd said a vendor he hired to field the robo-calls had made the error of putting the paid-for by message at the end.“I have never had an ethics complaint filed against my campaign so I am learning about the process as it moves forward,” he said. “ My campaign wants to comply with Kansas Ethics rules, the mistake was made by my vendor, they accept full responsibility, and efforts have been undertaken to ensure that it does not happen again.”Under state statute, candidates whose campaigns violate election law can face a fine of up to $5,000 on a first offense. Subsequent violations can generate fines of $10,000 or $15,000.last_img read more

DoD adds 30 days for comments on credit reg

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr At the request of NAFCU and others, the Department of Defense is extending its comment period on proposed Military Lending Act rule changes – which would apply to all credit unions – for 30 days following the official notice scheduled for publication in today’s Federal Register.“This rule will affect every credit union no matter how many servicemembers are in your field of membership or at what interest rate your consumer credit products are offered,” NAFCU Military Liaison Quincy Enoch said. “Every time any credit union extends a member any consumer credit product, they will need to check the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) database to see whether the member is a servicemember or a dependent of one to ensure the credit union provides the proper disclosures to avoid penalties. Penalties could include enforcement actions from CFPB or a criminal penalty, including up to a year in jail.”In a blog post on the NAFCU Compliance Blog last week, Enoch further explains the requirements of this proposal.Last week, NAFCU and five other financial industry trades jointly asked DoD for a 45-day comment period extension and for a meeting on the proposal, which would subject more credit products to DoD’s 36 percent interest-rate cap. Meanwhile, NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz says her agency plans to “submit formal comments” on the proposal.Issued in September, the proposal would amend DoD rules implementing the Military Lending Act. An advance notice of proposed rulemaking was issued last year, but last week’s joint-trades letter notes the proposed rule is complex and makes “radical changes” to the earlier ANPR. NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger also urged a 45-day extension in a letter last month. continue reading »last_img read more

Consultation on Draft Maintenance Bill convenes in Dominica

first_img Share Tweet 380 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Magistrate Gloria Augustus.The Ministry of Social Services, Family and Gender Affairs, in collaboration with several family and child care stakeholders, participated in a one day consultation to discuss an OECS Draft Family Model Bill on Tuesday 5 July 2016.The one day consultation sought to review the Draft Maintenance Bill, which was drafted to address some shortcomings of the present law and provide more guidance in addressing some concerns; a process which commenced in 2002. The consultation, which was held at the Dominica Public Service Union building, was funded by UNICEF.Magistrate Gloria Augustus informed that the maintenance bill is one of six family law draft bills which were drafted after much consultation at various levels.“This was done through the Family Law and Domestic Violence Project which sought to harmonize and reform the justice system in relation to family and domestic violence matters”.Magistrate Augustus stated that the motivation and driving force behind the bill was to ensure that Dominica is compliant with basic human rights and relevant international conventions signed by member OECS states.She added that signing the convention is only one part but the country must give effect to the provisions for these international instruments and conventions. “The situation is that because we have common law systems we have to actually enact the provisions in these conventions to give effect to them. It does not happen automatically. Like a marriage the parties have to work on it and in this case we have to enact legislation, and we are here to discuss that.”Magistrate Augustus further informed that in order to assist the process, the project provided the draft OECS Model Family Bills; namely the Care and Adoption bill, the Juvenile Justice bill, the Status of Children bill, the Family court bill, the Domestic Violence bill and the Maintenance bill. “Today we are going to examine our present maintenance law, which is Chapter 35.61. We are going to examine its deficiencies, its shortcomings and one can even say frustrations. We are also going to discuss some of the sections of the OECS Draft Maintenances bill, which has some interesting sections.”She noted that the maintenance Bill is action oriented and encouraged participants to think and focus on the reason for maintenance. “Who has the responsibility to maintain, what is a reasonable level of maintenance, who should be maintained and how the process can be made better for all involved,” Magistrate Augustus said.– / 18 Share LocalNews Consultation on Draft Maintenance Bill convenes in Dominica by: – July 5, 2016last_img read more
