The unbearable lights of Target Field 16.8.2014 MinnPost
Since it opened in 2010, Target Field has played to rave reviews, lauded for its atmosphere, its amenities and even its food. ESPN The Magazine ranked it as the No. 1 stadium in North America (Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul was third). And, oh yeah, it’s LEED Silver certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Yet all along there was one group of Minneapolis residents much less enamored of the $550 million ballpark. They live in the Falls and Pinnacle condominium complex at the foot of the Hennepin Street Bridge in Northeast Minneapolis. By day, many can see the ballpark from their windows and balconies. By night, they can see the lights. Boy, can they see the lights. The lights at issue are not those that help fans see the players and the players see the ball, but rather a separate set that helps the cleaning crews see all the garbage those fans leave behind. Called housekeeping lights, they shine onto the seating areas for hours after each game or event. They also shine directly into the homes of ...

Taking pride in Minnesota’s environmental collaborations 4.6.2014 MinnPost
Mike Harley Environmental Initiative hosted its 20th annual awards ceremony in Minneapolis on May 23. It was our best event yet, both in attendance and in the quality of our award recipients.  With the ceremony behind us, we at Environmental Initiative are taking a moment to reflect on the last 20 years, and one sentiment keeps rising to the top: pride in our community. Since 1994 the Environmental Initiative Awards have honored those working in partnership to solve environmental problems in Minnesota. This overall mission has never changed. But what has grown immensely over the years is the caliber of innovations and spirit of collaboration to produce tangible, positive environmental outcomes in our state. It’s fun to look back at our award winners over the last 20 years and use it as a measuring stick on how we’re doing with environmental achievement. Let me assure you – we’re doing very well.  At our first awards ceremony in 1994, we handed out four awards that were extraordinary at the time, but ...

Solar Twin Cities: Where urban farming, social justice, green tech and sustainable living meet 27.5.2014 MinnPost
Solar power isn’t just for southern locales anymore. According to  Aladdin Solar, LLP,  one of the Twin Cities metro’s growing solar companies, Minnesota actually has the same or better “solar resources” than most of the southeastern and northeastern U.S., “with more ‘peak sun hours’ here (on an annual basis, 4.6 hours daily average) than Germany, the top solar market in the world.” Back in 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy selected Minneapolis-St. Paul as one of its  25 Solar America Cities . The Twin Cities were chosen based on a competitive submittal that outlined plans “to build a sustainable solar infrastructure, streamline city-level regulations, and promote the adoption of mainstream solar technology among residents and businesses.” Among the completed initiatives is the installation of the largest solar array in the Upper Midwest: a 600 kW, 2,613-panel system on the roof of the  Minneapolis Convention Center . The array produces 750,000 kWh of renewable electricity per year — which could power ...

S.F. building aims to produce as much energy as it consumes 18.5.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Tilted rows of solar panels shield the roof while producing a steady stream of electricity. If all its systems work as planned, it will be San Francisco's first "zero net energy" office, and possibly a glimpse into California's future. State officials looking for ways to save energy and fight climate change want to make zero net energy buildings the norm. To reach net zero, buildings need their own source of electricity, typically solar panels. Before the company leased and renovated the building, the skylights were covered with standard glass, flooding the space below with light and, unfortunately, heat. People inside still get light and a view of the sky, minus the heat - and minus some energy spent on air conditioning. Most of the gently arched roof is covered by solar panels, capable of generating up to 118 kilowatts of electricity - about 40 times as much as a home solar system.
