Letter: I don’t get the reason for solar fee 26.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
I don’t get the reason why Rocky Mountain Power should charge customers with a solar panel installation for the connection they already have. We are paying for that connection through the use of power and existing fees. As a homeowner considering the option of having a large solar panel array on my home, I feel it would be an injustice to have to pay an additional fee to the power monopoly for the connection I already have. Rocky Mountain Power should instead be providing incentives to customers...

The playlist Americana: Bon Iver, DD Dumbo and Sturgill Simpson 24.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
New influences from African desert music to Delta blues provide forward momentum in the genre, topped by the majestic storytelling of Sturgill Simpson Earlier this year Kentucky-born, Nashville-dwelling Sturgill Simpson released his second album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music . Its a wonderful record soulful, witty, sultry, and shot through with the outlaw country feel of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard without ever falling into pastiche. The Promise is one of its gems. Originally recorded in 1988, a new wave hit for When in Rome, here Simpson magics it into something lost and lonely and long-distance. He starts off singing into his collar, tender and tempered, gently gathering force until that devastating quake to his voice is suddenly strewn into some wild near-howl. You can make as much as you please out of Simpsons history: the Appalachian coal-mining family, the stint in the navy, the ship-yard work, the boozing, the drugs, the policeman father, the metaphysics and cosmology, but after all ...

Minnesota's carbon-cutting plan should maximize efficiency and renewable-energy development 23.7.2014 MinnPost
Four dozen Minnesota leaders and citizens came together Tuesday for a public hearing at the State Office Building to show support for responsible national limits on carbon pollution from coal-burning power plants — the biggest source of global-warming pollution. The resulting message was loud and clear: Minnesotans strongly support the president’s Clean Power Plan and want to see Minnesota continue to grow our clean-energy economy by cutting carbon pollution. In attendance were Sen. John Marty, St. Louis Park City Council Member Jake Spano, and staff from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, as well as representatives from the offices of Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Al Franken, and Rep. Betty McCollum.  The week prior, I had the pleasure of attending the Clean Energy Economy Summit, where Gov. Mark Dayton called on hundreds of policy and business leaders to outline a plan for Minnesota to eliminate coal from the state’s energy portfolio. As the governor said, “Clean air is the most important legacy we can ...
