Title:

Westinghouse Bankruptcy: Nuclear Train Wrecks for Georgia and South Carolina

Description:

Westinghouse is a subsidiary of Japanese tech giant Toshiba and the designer and builder of the four under construction AP1000 nuclear reactors at Vogtle and Summer. The reactor design is yet to be operational anywhere in the world. The projects in both South Carolina and Georgia have been plagued with problems and are nearly four years delayed and many billions of dollars over budget. In fact, all four reactors were supposed to be operating by now(April 1, 2017 to be exact). – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Home Solar System Financing
The cost of an average solar electric system can
cost between 5,0000-30,000 after rebates and
incentives. Solar is an investment and like any
other financial instrument there is a return on
your investment after time. But unlike the stock
market, the payback on your solar investment is
guaranteed! The sun shines everyday. If you
consider the fact that you will spend over
60,000 over the next 20 years, getting solar now
makes sense. However, for too many people, that
still represents too large of an up front payment.
6
The good news is that our solar partners offer a
variety of great solar financing options to help
offset some of initial solar installation costs.
In most cases, the monthly payment on any
financing arrangement will still be less than the
amount of savings on your electric bill. Low
interest rates are available for a solar home
financing for as little to 0 down!
7
PV systems can be designed to supply power to any
type of electrical load at any service voltage. 
PV arrays can be mounted on the ground, rooftops
and other structures that provide adequate
protection, support and solar access. The site
conditions usually dictate the best mounting
system location and approach to use. Rooftops are
very popular locations for installing PV arrays.
Because they are elevated, roof mounts offer some
physical protection and limited access to the
array for safety, and usually provide better sun
exposure.
8
Rooftop PV installations also do not occupy space
on the ground that might be needed for other
purposes. Rooftop and other building mounted PV
arrays must be structurally secured and any
attachments and penetrations must be properly
weather sealed. Available rooftop areas for
mounting PV arrays may be limited by any number
of factors, including required spaces about the
array for installation and service, pathways and
ventilation access for fire codes, wind load
setbacks, and spaces for other equipment.
9
Sloped roofs also present a significant fall
hazard, and require appropriate fall protection
systems and/or personal fall arrest systems
(PFAS) for installers and maintenance workers.
The layout of a PV array can have a significant
effect on its natural cooling and operating
temperatures. A landscape (horizontal) layout may
have a slight benefit over a portrait (vertical)
layout when considering the passive cooling of
the modules.

11
Landscape is when the dimension parallel to the
eaves is longer than the dimension perpendicular
to the eaves. In a landscape layout, air spends
less time under the module before escaping and
provides more uniform cooling. Standoff mounts
operate coolest when they are mounted at least 3
inches above a roof.
12
GROUND-MOUNT SYSTEMS
Generally, ground mount solar panels cost a bit
more than rooftop solar on a per-watt basis
because of additional labor and permitting that
may be required for the installation. That being
said, if your property isnt ideal for rooftop
solar, installing a ground-mounted system can
actually save you money

ROOFTOP SYSTEMS
Standoff mounting, referred to by some as flush
mounting, uses standoffs attached to the roof to
support rails on which PV modules are attached.
This is the most common method for residential
installations.

Consumption Monitoring
With electric bills increasing, more and more
homeowners want to be more aware of how and when
they consume energy so they can better manage
their energy consumption and lower their costs
and impact on the environment.
18
Its not surprising that the National Football
League (NFL), a massive American industry, also
contains a massive carbon footprint. In fact,
the Dallas Cowboys stadium consumes about 750
megawatts of electricity during peak times
which is apparently enough to power a midsize US
city. So, how does Atlanta, a city that recently
committed to 100 clean energy by 2035, and
our brand new stadium, Mercedes-Benz, compete on
the largest stage of the year when it comes to
sustainability?
19
The Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which opened in 2017,
is the first sports stadium in the world to
achieve a LEED Platinum designation, which is the
highest certification from the U.S. Green
Buildings Council. Some of the highlights
include carports covered in 4,000 PV solar
panels, a 2 million gallon stormwater recapture
and storage system, and the worlds largest LED
lighting scoreboard. When it comes to traveling
to the actual game, the stadium provides a bike
valet option outside, and 48 Electric Vehicle
(EV) charging stations in nearby parking lots.
20
Off the field, the home teams from both the
Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United F.C.
participate in sustainable practices in the
Atlanta community, like participating in food
recovery and donation activities and partnering
with Trees Atlanta.
But why did Atlanta go all in on this state of
the art LEED Platinum building? Arthur Blank (or
Uncle Arthur as we like to call him), is the
owner of the Falcons and main funder behind the
new stadium. He apparently told the architects
that sustainability was an important factor from
day 1We set out to build a venue that would not
only exceed expectations, but also push the
limits of what was possible in terms of stadium
design, fan experience, and sustainability, Blank
said.

Sure, having the honor of building the most
sustainable stadium in the world is an amazing
accomplishment to flaunt, but I have to believe
that its more than that  its about the
money.Blank, a businessman at heart, had to be
thinking about the long-term savings. And the
numbers from the first few years of operation
show just that The stadium uses 47 less water
and 29 less energy than a typical stadium,
greatly lowering the costs to put on these
massive sporting events.
