Construction begins on massive 2.7GW solar project in California FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renewables Now:Real estate and infrastructure company CIM Group has kicked off construction on the first phase of an over 2.7-GW solar photovoltaic (PV) park in California’s San Joaquin Valley.The huge project, named the Westlands Solar Park, will become one of the largest power plants of its kind, generating electricity to over 1.2 million homes when working at full capacity. It will span over 20,000 acres of previously selenium contaminated and drainage-impaired land in the state’s Fresno and Kings Counties, the developer said earlier this week.The capacity is planned to be switched on in phases, the first one of which will be the 250-MW Aquamarine power plant. All needed entitlement and conditional use approvals for it are in place. The output from a 50-MW portion of its capacity will be sold under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with local power supplier Valley Clean Energy Alliance, which was signed following a competitive solicitation. First deliveries under the deal are planned for late 2021.Power from the Westlands Solar Park will go to public and private utilities and other energy consumers, the statement says. The development of the project follows the installation in 2016 of a 2-MW pilot solar system at the site, which is supplying power to the Anaheim Public Utility.[Veselina Petrova]More: Ground broken on 2.7-GW solar complex in California
Tag: 上海今日浪莎重新开业了吗 Sidney Crosby injury update: Pittsburgh Penguins star out six weeks after undergoing ‘muscle injury repair’
Rather than seek out alternative therapies, Crosby went to the Vincera Institute, where Meyers performed the surgery on Thursday morning.The Pittsburgh captain’s absence is another blow to a Penguins team that is already missing Kris Letang and Patric Hornqvist. Crosby leads his team with 17 points in 17 games this season. The Pittsburgh Penguins will have to live without the services of Sidney Crosby for a while.Crosby has been dealing with a sports hernia since training camp, and on Thursday the team announced that he underwent “a successful core muscle injury repair.” The recovery period is expected to be a minimum of six weeks. It was first reported on Tuesday that the 32-year-old may elect to have surgery to deal with the issue, which was exacerbated by a collision during a game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. Crosby later left the game after taking a puck to the right skate, but the foot injury was deemed as not serious and not related to the hernia.Crosby then sat out the Penguins’ contest against the New York Rangers on Tuesday after meeting with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia earlier that day.
