sPower taps Rosendin Electric for EPC services

first_imgsPower taps Rosendin Electric for EPC servicesThe agreement represents a significant portion of solar in the leading electrical contractor’s renewable energy division. sPower aims to double its operating portfolio this year. January 28, 2016 pv magazine Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Renewable energy provider sPower has tapped Rosendin Electric, Inc. (REI), one of the largest private electrical contractors in the U.S., to oversee engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services on its nearly 700 MW in utility-scale solar PV projects slated for this year. “Aligning ourselves with Rosendin marks one of the key strategic relationships that sPower has prioritized as we look to double our operating portfolio in 2016,” said sPower CEO Ryan Creamer. Creamer added that Rosendin’s depth of experience with solar facility construction would be instrumental in executing the company’s “aggressive development plans.” David Lincoln, vice president of REI’s Renewable Energy Group, said sPower had established itself as “a leader in the industry with a solid reputation for responsible development and strong financial backing. This agreement represents a significant portion of solar within our renewables group. sPower projects will have our full attention.” Construction is scheduled to begin in January, with completion and grid connection projected for April through December 2016. sPower has also signed a 1 GW PV module supply deal with JinkoSolar – the Chinese company’s largest U.S. contract to date. JinkoSolar will supply more than 3 million high-efficiency PV modules to sPower for its project rollout.Popular content ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Santa Fe High School massacre: A closer look at the teachers, students who were killed

first_imgScott Olson/Getty Images(SANTA FE, Texas) — Two teachers and eight students, including an exchange student, were killed when a gunman stormed into Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday morning.Thirteen others were injured in what Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called “one of the most heinous attacks that we’ve ever seen in the history of Texas schools.”The suspected gunman, a 17-year-old student, is in custody after allegedly targeting two art classes.Here is what we know about the 10 people killed.Cynthia TisdaleArt room teacher’s aide Cynthia Tisdale, a wife and mother of four, was among the dead, her brother-in-law, John Tisdale, wrote on Facebook.Glenda PerkinsVictim Glenda Perkins had been a substitute teacher at Santa Fe High School for years and her grandchildren attend the school, reported The Houston Chronicle.Perkins was a respected member of the high school community, remembered for her patience and great attitude, the newspaper said.“She always had a smile on her face,” junior Jay Mann told the newspaper.Shana FisherShana Fisher was shy, sweet, quiet and talented, her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, told ABC station KTRK-TV in Houston.She said the suspected gunman had been “making advances” toward her daughter.“She kept telling him no over the past four months. She finally stood up to him because he kept getting more aggressive,” Fisher said. “And not even a week later he just shoots everyone. And she was the first one.“It would have to take a lot for someone to keep picking at her for her to even say anything,” Fisher said. “‘Cause she’s just, when you introduce her to someone, she automatically puts her head down and smiles. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand why he would do that. Why would you take someone’s life?“I keep expecting her to come home ’cause we can’t view the bodies,” the distraught mother said. “So I don’t think it’s her. Like it’s not real.”Sabika SheikhSabika Sheikh, 17, was an exchange student from Pakistan who was determined to bring her native country closer to America, the Texas family who took in the foreign exchange student told mourners at her funeral on Sunday.“She was the most beautiful, loving person I’ve ever met,” said Jaelyn Cogburn, whose family took in Sabika six months ago as part of the Youth Exchange and Study program sponsored by the U.S. State Department.“She was so loyal to her faith, her country and she only had good things to say about everybody. She loved her family. She couldn’t wait to see them, and she loved us,” Jaelyn added.Jaelyn’s mother, Joleen Cogburn, recalled a conversation she had with Sabika when she first came to live in her home about what she wanted to accomplish as a foreign exchange student.“I asked her how she got involved with wanting to become a foreign exchange student and why, and she said, ‘Because I want to learn the American culture and I want America to learn the Pakistan culture and I want us to come together and unite,’” Cogburn said. “She wanted to be a businesswoman and she said she wanted to impact the world, and I think she’s done that.”Cogburn’s husband, Jason Cogburn, said that in the short time Sabika lived with them, she became as close as one of his daughters.“We had no idea what God was going to send us, but he sent us one of the most precious gifts I’ve ever had in life,” Jason Cogburn said.Angelique RamirezAngelique Ramirez was outgoing, precious, kind, beautiful and smart, according to a Facebook post from her older sister, Araceli Ramirez, who called Angelique “my other half.”“I’ll never forget my best friend, the first baby I ever held in my arms,” Araceli Ramirez wrote. “My baby sister, the person who looked up to me for the longest time.”“You deserved so much, you had so much planned for yourself and they took that away from you,” she wrote. “I’ll see you again my love.”Christopher Jake StoneChristopher Stone, 17, an adventurous thrill seeker, was the youngest of three siblings, but he acted as the protector of his older sisters, his father said, the New York Times reported.“Being a brother was his best job,” his father, also named Christopher Stone, said, according to the newspaper. “He was always there if someone needed someone to listen or some cheering up.”Jared BlackJared Black was in art class — his favorite — when he was killed, The Washington Post reported.He had recently turned 17 and his birthday party was supposed to take place on Saturday, the newspaper said.Jared’s father is “broken and devastated,” family friend Elizabeth McGinnis wrote in a statement, according to the Post.“We miss him so much,” his half-brother, Nick Black, said in a statement, according to the Post. “We wish we would see him at least one more time.”Kimberly VaughanSlain student Kimberly Vaughan was described by a family friend as witty, intelligent and unique, The Houston Chronicle reported.Kimberly was raised by her mother, Rhonda Hart, who works as a bus driver for her daughter’s school district, the newspaper said.While Hart was waiting to learn her daughter’s fate, she still comforted other children, a family friend said, according to the newspaper. One mother wrote on Facebook that the “wonderful” bus driver “did everything she could” to make her daughter “feel safe while not knowing the status of her own child.”Later that afternoon, Hart wrote on Facebook, “We need GUN CONTROL. WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR KIDS.”Aaron Kyle McLeodChristian Riley GarciaChristian Riley Garcia, 15, who went by Riley, grew up attending Crosby Church in Crosby, Texas, according to a Friday night Facebook post from Pastor Keenan Smith.“I just left his wonderful, loving family and extended all of the prayers and love for them from our Church,” Smith wrote. “I don’t know exactly how, but I know together in Christ we can make it.”Smith posted a photo he said was taken about 10 days earlier, showing the teenager posing next to scripture on a piece of wood. Smith said this was going to be the door frame of his new bedroom.“Riley you are greatly loved and greatly missed,” Smith said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Tennessee depth chart reflects Volunteers’ youth

first_imgKNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Butch Jones likes to compare guiding a young football team to raising children and watching them mature.The Volunteers are about to take their first steps.Tennessee plans to start three freshmen and one junior-college transfer in Sunday’s season opener against Utah State. Ten more freshmen, two redshirt freshmen and three junior-college transfers are in second-team roles. Tennessee’s entire offensive and defensive two-deep includes just six seniors, matching Temple for the fewest of any Football Bowl Subdivision program.”First games are the games of the unknown,” Jones said, “and we probably have more unknowns than anyone else in the country.”Likely freshman starters include defensive end Derek Barnett, offensive guard Jashon Robertson and tight end Ethan Wolf. Junior-college transfer Von Pearson is listed as a starting receiver. Tennessee actually has five freshmen atop its depth chart if you include kicker Aaron Medley and kick returner Evan Berry, who are mentioned as co-starters at their respective positions.Never before has a Tennessee true freshman tight end or defensive lineman started a season opener. Robertson, who opened training camp on the defensive line before moving to offense, would become Tennessee’s fourth true freshman offensive lineman to start an opener.Freshmen in second-team roles include linebacker Dillon Bates, tight end Daniel Helm, defensive end Dewayne Hendrix, running back Jalen Hurd, linebacker Colton Jumper, strong safety Todd Kelly Jr., receiver Josh Malone, defensive tackle Dimarya Mixon, cornerback Emmanuel Moseley and offensive tackle Coleman Thomas. The second team also features three junior-college transfers (offensive tackle Dontavius Blair, linebacker Chris Weatherd and nose tackle Owen Williams) and two redshirt freshmen (offensive guards Austin Sanders and Brett Kendrick).”It is exciting because I think it’s the future of Tennessee football,” Jones said. “This football team is going to be intact for many years to come. Along with that you suffer growing pains, but also they’re very talented.”By contrast, Utah State has six potential senior starters on offense and five more on defense as well as a senior kicker and punter.The makeup of Tennessee’s depth chart isn’t a surprise, but it does create plenty of uncertainty. Not even the newcomers themselves know how they’ll respond in front of a likely sellout crowd. Barnett acknowledged last week that he’d probably be nervous.”I’m nervous before every game,” Barnett said. “High school games, I’d get nervous. There are just so many people. I’m not used to (playing in front of) all these people. But it will be a good experience.”The Vols took steps to prepare their newcomers. Tennessee conducted an open practice at Neyland Stadium this month that drew an announced attendance of 40,000. Jones noted afterward that many of his players had never performed in front of a crowd that large.Jones still doesn’t know how well they’ll adapt to game situations. He notes that season openers often provide opportunities for teams to try new things that an opponent hadn’t seen from them on tape. An experienced team can adjust to that type of scenario. Jones is hoping his freshmen also are able to handle it.”How are these individuals really going to react when the scoreboard’s on and it’s for real?” Jones asked. “There are no do-overs. There are no reset buttons.”NOTES: Less than 2,000 tickets remained for the Utah State game as of early Tuesday afternoon. … Medley and George Bullock continue to compete for Tennessee’s kicking job. Jones said it could end up being a game-time decision. … Cameron Sutton, the Vols’ top cornerback, also will open the season as Tennessee’s main punt returner. Sutton didn’t return any punts last season. … Jones said reserve quarterback Joshua Dobbs, wide receiver Alton “Pig” Howard and Berry all could get opportunities to simulate Utah State star quarterback Chuckie Keeton in practice this week.last_img read more

Disney to release ‘Mulan’ on streaming service, for a price

first_imgThis image released by Disney shows Yifei Liu in the title role of “Mulan.” The film is no longer headed for a major theatrical release. The Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday that it will debut its live-action blockbuster on its subscription streaming service, Disney+, on Sept. 4. Customers will have to pay an additional $29.99 on top of the cost of the monthly subscription to rent “Mulan.” (Disney Enterprises, Inc. via AP)“Mulan” is no longer headed for a major theatrical release. The Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday that it will debut its live-action blockbuster on its subscription streaming service, Disney+, on Sept. 4.But this is no “Hamilton”: Customers will have to pay an additional $29.99 on top of the cost of the monthly subscription to rent “Mulan.” The company plans to release it in theaters in areas where Disney+ is not available.“In order to meet the needs of consumers during this unpredictable period, we thought it was important to find alternative ways to bring this exceptional family-friendly film to them in a timely manner,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said on the company’s earnings call. “We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theaters.”The live-action remake of the animated film was one of the first major films to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Originally set for a March 27 release, “Mulan” moved to late July, then late August and was then pulled from the calendar all together as COVID-19 cases spiked through the U.S.Along with Warner Bros.’ “Tenet,” “Mulan” was going to be one of the first major movies to open in theaters since the shutdown. Exhibitors, most of which have been closed for over four months, have been desperate for new films that would help draw wary audiences back to theaters.But while Warner Bros. is moving forward with a theatrical release plan, which involves opening “Tenet” internationally first and then in select U.S. theaters a week later, on Sept. 3, Disney decided to pivot and direct consumers to its streaming service.It is not unprecedented for a major studio to offer a premium video on demand release during the pandemic. Universal Pictures debuted “Trolls World Tour” on streaming in April while most theaters were shuttered. Although it caused a major rift at the time, it has since led to an historic compromise between the nation’s largest theater chain and Universal to shrink its theatrical window to 17 days.But few expected “Mulan,” a $200 million production, to go this route, even Disney. In late June, when announcing its delay to August, Disney executives Alan Horn and Alan Bergman wrote in a joint statement that “Mulan” was, “Everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs—on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together.”last_img read more

Spain smashed for five by Holland

first_imgWhen Spain won the World Cup in 2010 they did so after losing their first match to Switzerland. If they want to retain their trophy, they will have to take a similar route after they were humbled 5-1 by a Holland side inspired by Arjen Robben that grew more impressive as the game went on.  Man of the match Robben then demonstrated his pace again as he added the Dutch’s fifth late on. He raced clear from his own half, plonked Casillas on the floor and stuck the ball in the net. Holland: Cillesen; Janmaat, De Vrij (Veltman 77′), Vlar, Martins Indi, Blind, De Guzman (Wijnaldum 62′), Jong; Sneijder; Van Persie, Robben (Lens 79′). From that point on, things took a turn towards embarrassing for Spain. Sam Marsden Four years ago La Roja could argue the Swiss struck it lucky, however on Friday night in Salvador the circumstances couldn’t have been more different as the Dutch struck revenge for their 1-0 defeat to the Spanish at the last World Cup final in South Africa. There will be few complaints from a Spain side that left themselves far too open at the back and, but for a 20 minute spell in the first half, failed to trouble an inexperienced Oranje backline.  Booked: Casillas. Holland came more into the game from that point, but it was the linesman’s flag which was troubled more often than Casillas. At the other end Silva’s chipped finish was well saved by Cillesen and moments later the game would swing in the direction of Louis Van Gaal’s side. Things could not have gone much worse for Spain.  Goal: Alonso 27′. Gerard Pique played Van Persie onside, and he obliged by escaping Sergio Ramos and fantastically heading in Daley Blind’s cross on the stroke of half time. Upd. at 23:33 Robben was causing problem after problem, and his driving run on the hour ended with Van Persie testing the woodwork – Holland would not have to wait long for a third though. Sneijder’s free-kick wasn’t dealt with by the Spanish defenders, and De Vrij will not get many easier headers at the far post.center_img Silva then had a goal ruled out for offside, before Casillas had a moment he will never want to see again. Ramos rolled the ball back to his Real Madrid colleague, whose horror touch presented Van Persie with the sort of opportunity strikers of his caliber don’t waste. Within eight minutes of the restart, Robben displayed the form that Bayern have enjoyed so much over the past two seasons. Collecting a Blind pass, he cut inside Pique and rifled beyond the helpless Casillas. CEST Booked: De Guzman, De Vrij, Van Persie. All this after Xabi Alonso had given Spain the lead from the penalty spot. Del Bosque’s men started on top, but it was Sneijder who first brought one of the goalkeepers into life. He wriggled free down the middle, but his shot was palmed away by Iker Casillas. It was a ball Costa received in the box which led to the opener though. De Vrij hauled him down and Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli pointed to the spot. Alonso dispatched low to Jasper Cillessen’s right. Match facts:  Spain: Casillas; Azpilicueta, Pique, Ramos, Alba; Busquets, Alonso (Pedro 63′), Xavi; Silva (Fabregas 78′), Iniesta, Costa (Torres 63′). Manchester United forward Robin Van Persie scored twice, Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben scored two sublime solo goals and Feyenoord’s Stefan de Vrij headed in a Wesley Sneijder free-kick. Spain then typically took control of the ball, looking relaxed on a stage they have owned for the best part of a decase now. Andres Iniesta fired over from distance, while Costa regularly looked uncooth when when given the ball in the area, blazing over his best chance after an incisive David Silva pass. Goals: Van Persie 44′ and 72′, Robben 53′ and 80′, De Vrij 64′. Referee: Nicola Rizzoli (Italy). 13/06/2014 Most of the debate in the build up to the game had revolved around who Vicente Del Bosque would start as his striker – he opted for Diego Costa in the end – but it was the Dutch forwards who people will be talking about tomorrow.last_img read more
