If it wins, New York would undertake initial site studies and pursue an agreement to sell the electricity. The state would then hold an auction of its own, selling development rights to the highest bidder.New York officials see offshore wind as critical for meeting the state’s goal to get half its power from renewable sources by 2030. By doing the initial planning and guaranteeing a buyer for the power, the state intends to make the project appealing to developers, driving down costs and making it more likely the wind farm will be built.“This is a resource that has to be, and will be, developed,” John B. Rhodes, president and chief executive of the New York State authority, said in an interview Friday. “It is our job to do it as surefootedly and cost efficiently as possible.”Offshore wind is among the most expensive sources of power in the world. While it has thrived in Europe, the technology has languished in the U.S. as utilities balked at the price. If New York succeeds in lining up a buyer, the state would remove much of the risk for developers, and ultimately make the power cheaper for consumers, said Willett Kempton, a professor at the University of Delaware who studies offshore wind.“This is New York telling the country that offshore wind is going to happen, ” Kempton said in an interview. “No other state has done this before.”Full article: New York Has a Plan to Make Long Island Offshore Wind Cheaper ‘This Is New York Telling the Country That Offshore Wind Is Going to Happen’last_img read more

The Tar Heels began with physical play but couldn’t string together enough offense to stave off the Orange attack as Syracuse took advantage of North Carolina’s futility.Here are three takeaways from the game.Star at the XDanny Varello did not start off his season as the Orange’s top faceoff contributor well. A strong showing from Jakob Phaup was enough to unseat him as the top faceoff specialist on SU, and Phaup soared to near the top of the country’s faceoff percentage leaderboards. But Varello’s defining skill is something Phaup admits he doesn’t have: speed off the whistle. Against North Carolina’s faceoff unit that ranked 37th in the country prior to Saturday, Varello was the first to the ball almost every time. Varello finished the game 13-of-18 on his attempts at the X. He battled to push balls loose for ground balls, but more often than not scooped it himself.

He constantly won possession for SU right away and pushed the ball ahead once he gained possession.Running away with itAt one point early in the second quarter, Syracuse trailed 6-2. The Orange were sloppy with the ball and couldn’t string together multiple possessions. But then Syracuse scored four in a row, then six in a row. Before the Tar Heels scored their first goal in 26 minutes with 6:50 remaining in the final quarter, the Orange went on a 10-1 run to establish a comfortable lead.Being outshot 15-11 in the first quarter, Syracuse outpaced the Tar Heels 11-6 in the second quarter, 12-5 in the third quarter and only trailed 6-8 on attempts in the final quarter of the game. Syracuse slowed its offense down, played to the shot clock and made the most of its opportunities with the ball.ACC boostPrior to the game, Syracuse sat at fourth in the ACC standings. With a simultaneous game played between conference rivals Duke and Virginia, the Orange’s win could’ve potentially solidified a first-round bye in the ACC tournament. Prior to Saturday, all four teams below conference-leader Virginia only had one conference win and, after North Carolina’s loss, the Orange achieved the highest conference win total for a team below the Cavaliers. Pending the outcome of Duke’s bout with Virginia, the Orange could avoid a tiebreaker scenario with a Blue Devils loss and secure a bid to a Saturday start to the tournament.
