In New Mexico, Diversification Through Solar

first_imgIn New Mexico, Diversification Through Solar FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Hannah Grover of the Farmington Daily Times:Solar energy is slowly gaining a foothold in San Juan County as local cities engage in renewable energy projects. From Bloomfield’s electric performance contract to Aztec’s solar field and Farmington’s community solar project, local governments are embracing renewable energy.The electric performance contract involved upgrading lighting on city of Bloomfield buildings such as the senior center and the municipal operations center. Solar panels also were installed on the Bloomfield parks department building, the municipal operations building, a fire station and the senior center.Teresa Brevik, the projects manager, said electricity is one of the larger recurring expenses for the city, and the lighting upgrades and solar panels are expected to save Bloomfield approximately $40,000 a year.Rodney Romero, the Farmington Electric Utility System director, said an increased portfolio of renewable energy is something customers have been demanding.In addition to local cities, the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority also has been investing in solar. On Saturday, members of the Navajo Nation Council attended a groundbreaking for the Kayenta solar facility, located on about 300 acres of land west of Kayenta, Ariz.The solar facility is the first large-scale solar farm in the Navajo Nation, according to a press release from Navajo Nation Office of the Speaker. It is expected to provide the utility with about 27.5 megawatts of energy after construction is completed by the end of the year.Solar projects add to energy diversitylast_img read more

The ship named National Defense cannot have more holes. They have noticed it is something worth to invest on.last_img read more

Messi helps Barcelona sink Napoli to reach last 8

first_imgRelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Barca president Bartomeu says he won’t go to war anymore with Messi A fired-up Lionel Messi led Barcelona to a 3-1 win at home to Napoli on Saturday for a 4-2 aggregate victory, which took the club into the Champions League quarter-finals.It is Barcelona’s 13th consecutive time of reaching the last eight and they will face Bayern Munich in a mouth-watering clash in the Final Eight tournament in Lisbon next Friday. The Catalans had a shaky start, but took the lead in the 10th minute with a powerful header from a corner by Clement Lenglet, before Messi scored a superb second in the 23rd, seeing off four defenders to curl the ball into the far bottom corner.Messi had the ball in the net again soon after following a superb team move, but the goal was harshly ruled out for handball following a VAR review.Messi later won a penalty, which Luis Suarez converted for Barca’s third.Napoli got one back when Lorenzo Insigne converted a spot kick at the end of the first half and were the better side after the interval.Messi had sounded the alarm after Barca’s rusty performance in the 1-1 draw in the first leg back in February, saying they stood no chance of winning Europe’s top prize, which has eluded them since 2015, unless they improved. He would have been worried by Barca’s stuttering start which saw Napoli swarm all over the home side’s area and Dries Mertens clip the crossbar in the second minute with a scuffed shot.But Napoli’s slack defending allowed Lenglet to score with a free header which settled Barca’s nerves.Messi effectively killed the tie off with his goal and by winning the penalty by chasing down Kalidou Koulibaly in the area and earning a foul.However, the fact Napoli ended the game so well, with Hirving Lozano hitting the post and Arkadiusz Milik’s header ruled out for offside, added to the sense that Barca will struggle to beat Bayern.The German champions thrashed Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate.

first_img(On the next race): “When we talked about it at the beginning of the year, we said we’d go to the San Vicente and the Florida Derby because we liked the timing. I think Doug will change his mind a couple times between now and then, because there’s the temptation to stay home. We love Santa Anita. But we’ll see. We just want to take it in stride. It was a good first step.“The track was fast, and he ran like the track was fast. He’s just got that mindset that you’re not going to beat him.” NOTES: Winning owners Paul and Zillah Reddam reside in Irvine, CA. KENT DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, SECOND: “You’d have to break the track record to win the race, so that’s telling for both horses. They’re both very talented. I had a dream trip. The winner was too good.” JOCKEY QUOTES TRAINER QUOTES -more- KEITH DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, SECOND: “Goodness gracious. Anybody not a believer in Nyquist now, that was an awesome race, to set those kinds of fractions and still finish in close to track record time for a three-year-old in February. Wow! Hat’s off to Nyquist.” DOUG O’NEILL, NYQUIST, WINNER: “Everything went great, and for the race to go the way it did, I’m pumped and so proud of the whole team. Mario (Gutierrez) was great under pressure, which is what we need right now.“Exaggerator is a nice horse, and for him (Nyquist) to hold him off the way he did showed you how talented he is. There were some anxious moments when I saw the fractions, and you’re better off on the outside tracking than on the inside being tracked. The post (one) wasn’t an advantage at all and I think we got pushed by the bottom horse (Sheikh of Sheikhs) a little bit early. But Mario is smart. He knew what he had. I really was impressed with the gallop out. He galloped out great.”Next race? “I haven’t talked to Paul (Reddam). The original plan was the Florida Derby (April 2) and there’s a bonus involved, of course, so we’ll huddle up and play it by ear and do whatever is in the best interest of Nyquist for sure.”center_img MARIO GUTIERREZ, NYQUIST, WINNER: “He hasn’t run since November (Oct. 31) so we know he was going to be rank but I also believe in his talent. I wanted to fight with him as little as possible today, let him do his thing and you saw the results.“I wasn’t worried about Exaggerator today. I can’t be worried about that, about other horses. I know my horse is talented enough to make it to the bigger races so if I’m worried about other horses now, this early, than that makes me sound like I don’t believe in my horse and I do.” 2/2/2/2 DENNIS O’NEILL, NYQUIST, WINNER: “It was scary, because I saw that horse pressing him, and 44 and change was a little spooky, and then eight and change, and you keep waiting for them to slow down off a layoff like that. To see him kick on and gallop out like that was really, really exciting. I don’t know how good this horse is now. I knew he was a good horse, but I thought today’s performance was amazing. We’re really excited moving forward. It’s a perfect prep. We have seven weeks (to the Florida Derby). We couldn’t ask for anything better.“The gallop out was scary, because it looked like Exaggerator had him. He made him run. He kept trying to get a breather, and he couldn’t get a breather the whole way. For a horse to do it is pretty exciting.” PAUL REDDAM, NYQUIST, WINNER: “That was what we anticipated. We knew Exaggerator was ready, and we knew we’d probably have to go.”(On not getting respect): “They can give him respect or not, but that’s not going to affect his performance on the racetrack. We try not to take any of that personally and if they want to say, ‘That was only seven-eighths – how’s he going to be at a mile and an eighth or a mile and a quarter?,’ We’ll let him tell us.” FLAVIEN PRAT, DENMAN’S CALL, THIRD: “We had a good trip, we were right behind Nyquist and Exaggerator. For a moment we were in the second spot and it was a good race.“It wasn’t a big win but we did something good today. He’s still very green but he’s a good horse.“I feel good about it; with these things you just get back to riding horses and gain the experience.”​ -30-last_img read more
