first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:Colorado is preparing to boost its use of energy storage, especially since Xcel revamped its energy plan, committing to completely eliminate carbon emissions by 2050, and regulators are beginning to lay out rules to ensure batteries are included in utility planning processes when they acquire supply-side resources. The order approved this week by the PUC codifies the intent of legislation passed earlier in the year.The new rules “establish requirements for a coordinated electric planning process that is to be conducted on a comprehensive, transparent, statewide basis.” The PUC noted in its order that the commission “does not currently treat all electric facilities alike from the perspective of planning or procurement.” The Energy Storage Association in a statement celebrated the PUC’s move, saying the new rules “raise the bar for including energy storage in utility planning.” Following the passage of the underlying legislation, ESA said the commission “took its own momentous step toward leveling the playing field for energy storage and other flexible technologies.” Requiring consideration of energy storage in utility planning processes will be a “critical ingredient to ensuring the greatest savings for ratepayers,” the group said.A previous bill passed by lawmakers directed the PUC to adopt rules governing the installation, interconnection and use of customer-sited energy storage systems, setting some parameters for interconnection reviews.Colorado’s legislature “has made it clear that storage must be considered as an option for cost-effective electric service,” ESA said in a statement.More: Colorado adopts rule to include storage in utility planning Colorado to require utilities to consider storage in long-range resource planslast_img read more

first_imgOn Wednesday, the Women of Troy will look to follow up Friday’s season opening win over Hawai’i with another victory against UC Riverside. While most early non-conference play is against somewhat inferior competition, the Highlanders provide a solid test for USC. Last season they went 23-9, going undefeated in Big West play and making an appearance in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. The program has undergone a massive turnaround after going 6-23 just three seasons ago. “They run a motion with a lot of screens, both stagger screens, backdoors as well as shuffle cuts,” head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke said. “We’ve got to be really effective with defending the screens as well as putting pressure on the ball.” Last Friday, the familiar faces for the Trojans showed up to play. Junior forward Kristen Simon recorded a double-double, scoring 16 points and snatching 10 rebounds, while redshirt senior guard Jordan Adams scored 11 points while shooting five-for-six from the field.“I just try to be the glue. I just try to hold everyone together,” Adams said. “I know that, consistently, your shots won’t always fall and you’re not always going to have the best games, but I just come in with energy and effort and leadership.”In addition to the veteran players, freshman guard Minyon Moore and forward Ja’Tavia Tapley performed admirably in their debut games. Moore had 8 points, while Tapley scored 10 along with five rebounds. Each played extended minutes, showing that they will be integral to this year’s success regardless of their experience. Even though USC played quite well in last week’s season opener, shooting 50 percent as a team and receiving 32 points from the bench, Cooper-Dyke knows there is a lot of room for improvement. “I want to play solid defense, aggressive defense, passing lane defense so that we don’t have to worry about teams playing in the half court defensively,” Cooper-Dyke said. “We can run our fast break and get out in transition. I want to improve defense. I want to improve our rebounding and then I want to be able to, in the half-court, attack more efficiently.” After playing UCR at home, the Trojans will embark on an extended road trip. First, they head to Las Vegas to play UNLV on Saturday and then travel to Anchorage for the Great Alaska Shootout on Tuesday. “We traveled a lot during Italy (this summer), and we got a really nice bonding experience,” Adams said. “I think everyone is excited to get back on the road and spend time together again and really just get back to finding out who each other are. That’s the one thing that’s beautiful about playing on the road.” Wednesday night’s game will tip off at 7 p.m. at the Galen Center. With the long road trip, the Women of Troy do not play at home again until Nov. 27 against Long Beach State.last_img read more

first_imgMyrainah Blancas gathered her courage and started reading aloud an original story about sexual assault by a supposed friend.Erika Worth stopped her and made one suggestion: change all your third-person references to “she” who was assaulted into first-person references to “I.” Bring it closer, she counseled. Even though it’s scary, don’t play it safe.The change made a tale that was serious and important, yet still a little removed and remote, into a powerful work of up-close intimacy and searing pain. Blancas, 17, trembled and cried as she described inviting the guy she thought was her buddy over to her house, where he chose to ignore her screams of “no!”Afterwards, she felt suicidal and mistrustful of boys, who can never be her friends, she concluded. Blancas now hates wearing dresses, she added, because they make her feel vulnerable.“I attempt to rip out these pages from the book of my life but they keep coming back,” she said. “My body is a piece of art that was meant to be handled with care.”When she was done, storytelling coaches Worth and Nikole Potulsky sang her praises. “You made something awful into something really beautiful,” Potulsky said. English teacher Ben Jatos, who heard an earlier version of this tough tale, called Blancas a storytelling “beast.” And fellow storyteller Blue Jackson, 18, asked for permission to give Blancas a hug.last_img read more
