Entergy solar energy pilot project being tested at site in New Orleans East
AND CAMILLE THE TREND OF GETTING POWER FROM THE SUN IS GETTING A BIG BOOST IN THE CRESCENT CITY. SCOTT AND SOON WHEN YOU TURN ON YOUR TV IN THE CRESCENT CITY THE POWER TO RUN THAT BIG SCREEN COULD COME FROM SOLAR. KWELIYN MURPHY EXPLAINS. ENTERGY MAY SOON BE ABLE TO CHANGE THE WAY IT PROVIDES ENERGY TO ITS CUSTOMERS. AND ITS ALL WITH THE HELP OF THE SUN. THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO HELP DETERMINE WHAT EXACTLY SOLAR CAN DO FOR US AND OUR CUSTOMERS. SO WE'VE TERMED IT A PILOT,.
BECAUSE IT'S BASICALLY A FIRST STEP TO EVALUATE WHAT POTENTIAL THIS TYPE OF RESOURCE HAS IN MEETING OUR CUSTOMERS' NEEDS. THE PROJECT, WHICH WILL BE HOUSED IN NEW ORLEANS EAST, WILL CONSIST OF OVER 4,000 SOLAR PANELS WHICH WILL CONVERT SUNLIGHT TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY AS WELL AS BATTERY STORAGE TECHNOLOGY. CUREINGTON SAYS THE BATTERIES WILL BE KEY TO BRINGING SOLAR TO THE FOREFRONT IN A WAY THAT MAKES SENSE. BECAUSE WHEN THE SOLAR PANELS AREN'T PRODUCING ENERGY, THE BATTERY IS THE WAY TO BACK THEM UP. THE CHOICE TO MAKE NEW.
ORLEANS HOME FOR THE PROJECT HAD A LITTLE TO DO WITH ITS LOCATION. SO, WE'RE IN THE DEPTHS OF THE GULF SOUTH AND AS YOU GUYS KNOW THE HUMIDITY AND THE AIR QUALITY HERE CAN SOMETIMES BE A CHALLENGE. SO, IT'S A REAL PROVING GROUND FOR US TO ESTABLISH HOW SOLAR OPERATES. WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF DATA AND INFORMATION ON THAT FOR THE GULF COAST. WE JUST ANNOUNCED THE SELECTION OF BLATTNER ENERGY AS OUR PARTNER TO CONSTRUCT THE FACILITY. AND WE PLAN TO BRING THE FACILITY ONLINE IN THE MIDDLE OF.
ITeam Update Solar power company behind on property payments as building sits empty
FOLLOWED FOR MONTHS ON THE SOLAR POWER INDUSTRY. ACCORDING TO THE LOUISIANA CONTRACTORS BOARD SADER POWER STILL DOES NOT HAVE A LICENSE TO OPERATE IN THE STATE. THE COMPANY SAYS IT'S STILL DOING BUSINESS HERE BUT WHAT INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER TRAVERS MACKEL FOUND IS RAISING NEW QUESTIONS. HE'S LIVE AT SIX WITH this ITEAM UPDATE. ACCORDING TO SADER'S WEBSITE THE COMPANY HAS INSTALLED MORE THAN 2000 SOLAR ARRAYS. THE OWNER ADMITTED IN MARCH THAT MAY OF THOSE WERE DONE SO WITHOUT THE COMPANY HAVING A PROPER LICENSE. TONIGHT, MORE COMPLAINTS FROM.
THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU AND YOU MAY BE SURPRISED WHAT WE FOUND WHEN WE WENT LOOKING FOR ANSWERS. ON CEHF MENTEUR HIGHWAY IN NEW ORLEANS EAST. THIS IS THE BUILDING SADER POWER OPERATES OUT OF. WHEN WE WENT BY IT WAS SHUT DOWN. NO CARS IN THE PARKING LOT. NO SIGNS OUT FRONT. AND FROM WHAT WE COULD TELL, NO WORKERS INSIDE. WE LEFT A MESSAGE AFTER FINDING A PHONE NUMBER ON SADER'S WEBSITE. A REPRESENTATIVE CALLED US BACK AND TOLD US STAFFERS ARE AT THIS FACILITY IN INTERVALS. HE.
THEN REFERRED US TO COMPANY OWNER JON SADER. HE TOLD US QUOTE Yes, we are still operating in Louisiana, as always, and as you did, customers can reach us via our telephone or internet. IN FEBRUARY THE WDSU ITEAM FIRST REPORTED HOW SADER POWER WAS FACING A FEDERAL LAWSUIT, WAS NOT A LICENSED WITH THE STATE CONTRACTOR'S BOARD AND HAD AN F RATING WITH THE LOCAL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. THE HEAD OF THE BBB TELLS US SADER STILL HAS AN F RATING AND 60 COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN FILED AGAINST THE COMPANY. THE.
CONTRACTORS BOARD FACED FINED JON SADER IN MARCH AFTER HE ADMITTED HIS COMPANY WAS NOT PROPERLY LICENSED AND ORDERED HIM TO OBTAIN A LICENCE PRIOR TO TAKING ON ANY NEW CUSTOMERS. THE CONTRACTOR'S BOARD WEBSITE STILL DOES NOT LIST SADER AS A LICENSED CONTRACTOR. AS FOR THE BUILDING ON CHEF HIGHWAY, WE TALKED TO THE COMPANYY THAT OWNS THE PROPERTY AND THEY TELL US SADER POWER IS STILL LEASING THE FACILITY BUT IS LATE ON IT'S RENT PAYMENTS. IN MARCH SADER POWER PAID A $7000 FINE TO THE STATE FOR OPERATING WITHOUT A LICENSE. THE.
Louisiana Wind Solar Energy Tax Credit
NARRATOR On the roof of his home in Baton Rouge, Herb Sumrall is inspecting an innovation that's already saving money every month, solar panels. Herb Sumrall, Homeowner My wife and I, when we built the house, were pretty much into solar conservation. So, we've done a bunch of things over the years and this seemed like the appropriate thing to do and the appropriate time. NARRATOR Solar panels make electricity from sunlight and Sumrall's power bill is a fourth of what it used to be. Plus, the cost of installing this array will be significantly offset when.
He files his state and federal taxes. William Little, Louisiana Department of Revenue The Solar and Wind Power Tax Credit gives a taxpayer a refundable credit for 50 percent of the first 25 thousand dollars of the costs associated with installing a wind or solar powered energy system. That is the state tax credit. The analogous federal tax credit is 30 percent of the same installation costs. Adding these two together, you get 80 percent of the installation costs. Legislative leaders both in Washington and the state level are trying to generate energy efficiency at the.
Solar Energy Graduate Program
University of Rochester's solar energy graduate program gives the tools necessary to not only study solar energy technology, but to become entrepreneurs and leaders in the field. While they earn their doctorate in engineering or science, students are taught the business and politics of alternative energy. Very often scientists and engineers are very good people technically and scientifically but they are fairly ignorant of the economic and business questions as well as the public policy questions. What we want is we want them to become not just players but in fact entrepreneurs in the field..
My research involves looking at the interaction of silver nanoparticles and light, and how that might be used to enhance the scattering of the light into silicone solar cells. It's important because the price of solar cells is obviously a big hinderance to adopting photovoltaic technology and hopfully shifting away from a more fossil fuel based energy economy. We will have two international components to our program. The first one will bring our students to European laboratories where they will learn and practice the technology that has been developed. The second internship is going to be in Africa, in one of three African countries.
We have selected. They will go there to do field work as well as to help teach courses in African universities. In quite a few countries in the developed world we have a situation where the cost of electricity is extremely high which makes some of those renewable technologies immediately affordable, immediately possible. We would like some of our students, as a result of their studies, to actually go in this field and develop solutions that can be used to improve the quality of life of people in those countries. We have focused this program on energy available from the sun.
Because the sun is largest possible source of energy. However, today the technological solutions that have been implemented are not really good enough. They are either too expensive or the technology degrades over time. So there is an enormous potential on the one hand and a very big technological need on the other hand. So this is why we thought this was going to be what we would call a low hanging fruit. Our new program is extremely multidisciplinary and will produce students who are not traditional students. Those students of course will be firmly grounded in the science.
Gov. John Bel Edwards says LSP troopers will remain in New Orleans
RTER, NOT JUST FOR MARDI GRAS, BUT A YEARROUND EFFORT. NOT FAR FROM THE FRENCH QUARTER IN DOWNTOWN NEW ORLEANS, STATE POLICE TROOPERS WERE SOME OF THE FIRST ON A SHOOTING SCENE THIS AFTERNOON.
