According to Canadian Solar, this joint procurement represents the largest contracted solar-plus-storage project in California to date.This partnership resulted from a joint procurement process that Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Monterey Bay Community Power launched in September 2017 to source renewable power for their respective communities.“As a community choice aggregator (CCA), we are proud to help California lead the transition to clean, reliable and flexible energy,” states Girish Balachandran, CEO of Silicon Valley Clean Energy. “We are proud to partner on a new renewable energy project that makes a significant investment to reach our state’s carbon-free energy goals and contribute to solving the state’s grid integration problem by investing in large grid-scale energy storage.”Power will be supplied from Recurrent Energy’s Slate photovoltaic-plus-storage project, to be built in Kings County, Calif. The project is scheduled to reach commercial operations in 2021, and the energy represented by the contracts is enough to power 37,500 homes, providing Silicon Valley Clean Energy with 55% of the energy and Monterey Bay with the other 45% of the combined output.The project’s lithium-ion battery component is 45 MW nameplate with 180 MWh of energy capacity, allowing for four hours of flexible energy delivery.More: Big solar-plus-storage deal signed in Californialast_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 66-55 win over Elon

first_imgSyracuse (3-0) continued its perfect start to the season with a 66-55 win over Elon (2-2) Saturday night. Here are three thoughts from the win in the Carrier Dome.Stepping upTyler Roberson played just 21 minutes in Syracuse’s season opener and then fouled out against St. Bonaventure on Tuesday. Against Elon, though, he played his most complete game of the season, scoring 20 points and hauling in 16 rebounds.Syracuse had fallen behind by a point but Roberson capped off a 10-0 rally, slashing to the basket from the baseline and catching a no-look pass from Kaleb Joseph. He laid the ball in and was fouled to cap off a 14-point first half for the forward.In the second half, he picked up a 3 air balled by Malachi Richardson and tapped it in. On the next possession he flew to the ground to scoop up another loose ball. SU head coach Jim Boeheim had said he didn’t see much from the junior a week ago, but it was impossible not to see his contributions against Elon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo lead is safeIt was a game of runs on Saturday. Two Michael Gbinije 3-pointers and an and-one from Roberson boosted Syracuse to a 12-2 lead. But two 3-pointers from Dainan Swoope and then two free throws from Jack Anton more than three minutes later capped off an 18-7 Phoenix run.After Syracuse rebutted with a 10-0 run, Swoope again hit a 3. Boeheim flung his fist so hard in frustration that his tie flipped back over his shoulder. Elon continued to hit big shots from 3. Luke Eddy tied the game by hitting a wide-open 3 from the top of the key. He froze his follow motion above his head as he drifted down court and Boehiem called a timeout.It wasn’t until Syracuse again responded with a 10-0 run that the Orange created enough breathing room to win the game.Backing offSyracuse boasted throughout the preseason that it would be a more 3-point heavy offense. Thirty-four attempts from long range against Lehigh was evidence of that. But it was a plan that Syracuse went away from a bit in the second half against St. Bonaventure. And on Saturday, the Orange played much more in transition and attacked the basket.SU shot 6-of-15 from long range. When Richardson struggled to hit from behind the arc, he attacked the rim and went 9-of-10 from the free-throw line. The Orange scored 10 points on the fast break compared to just six for the Phoenix. Comments Published on November 21, 2015 at 9:01 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
