Colorado co-op sees big potential in battery storage

first_imgColorado co-op sees big potential in battery storage FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Energy News Network:Jerry Marizza likes to think the Colorado electric cooperative he works at learned a lesson with solar power. “We had the attitude that it was too expensive — nobody would do it except the rich greenies,” said Marizza, coordinator for United Power Cooperative’s new energy program. “Well, we were dead wrong.”And so Marizza spoke with a sense of humility but also determination as he led visitors on a tour of the co-op’s new battery storage project about 30 miles north of downtown Denver. The 16 lithium-ion batteries total 4 megawatts and 16 hours of storage, making the project the largest in the state. It will likely remain so until Xcel Energy completes installation of 275 megawatts of battery storage by late 2022.United Power sees the Tesla PowerPack ESS batteries as the sort of low-risk gamble that it is well-positioned to take and should take. The co-op has 87,000 metered members, from homes in the foothills to fast-growing towns and cities north and east of Denver. The oil and gas industry is responsible for a third of the co-op’s load and most of the growth, a 50 percent increase in eight years.The electrical distribution cooperative’s embrace of batteries, though, has been stoking tensions with its power supplier, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, which adopted a policy last summer capping the amount of battery storage members are allowed to have on their systems.United, despite its early skepticism, wasn’t caught entirely flat-footed on solar. In 2009, the cooperative launched the first community solar project in the nation, allowing customers to buy solar capacity in lieu of rooftop solar. The co-op plans a similar “community battery” storage, allowing users to purchase a share of the battery system’s output to directly reduce demand charges.Marizza and United Power began investigating battery storage three years ago, got board approval two years ago, and signed a contract with Tesla in late 2017. Crucial was Tesla’s warranty that the batteries will remain at 100 percent capacity for 10 years. Marizza expects they will decline to 70 percent capacity after 20 years. With savings of $100,000 a month, United expects full payback within eight years on the cost of $7 million to $8 million.More: Colorado’s biggest battery a ‘gamble’ co-op decided it needed to makelast_img read more

But police quickly established that the burst of violence was sparked by a disagreement between Kim and John Choi, the firm’s owner.Choi survived the shooting but one if his employees, 25-year-old Zachariah Yong Jae Shin of Whitestone, Queens, did not. Earlier this year, Kim had performed a renovation job at Shin’s family apartment in Queens but did “a lousy job,” David Lee, who co-founded The Korean American Public Affairs Committee with Choi, told the Press last week.The manhunt quickly spread to upstate New York where Kim’s white Honda Pilot was discovered near a wooded area in Putnam County later that day.Police discovered Kim’s body after an extensive search of Hudson Highlands Park and the surrounding waterways.The manhunt included more than a dozen agencies including the FBI.last_img read more

Kiwis not the worst bingers – but nothing to cheer

first_imgStuff 22 May 2014Kiwis are knocking back the alcohol equivalent of 826 bottles of beer a year each – but our binge-drinking culture may not be as bad as feared.The latest Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health by the World Health Organisation has revealed New Zealanders aged 15 and over drank on average 10.9 litres of pure alcohol a head in 2010, up from 9.6l in 2005, and well above the 6.2l global average.About 20 per cent of New Zealanders in that category don’t drink alcohol, so when they are removed the average amount for every drinker was even higher.We drank less than our Australian counterparts, who consumed 12.2l each, but even they were well behind the biggest drinkers – in Belarus – who sank 17.5l.Since it peaked in the 1970s, our drinking declined steadily until the late 1990s, when it started to rise again slightly.But despite warnings about a binge-drinking culture, the figures show rates of “heavy episodic drinking” are well below many other countries. read more
