Extreme ice and tree damage knocks out power to 24,000 CVPS customers

first_imgExtreme ice and tree damage knocks out power to 24,000 CVPS customersRUTLAND -A storm that has caused hundreds of thousands of people to lose power across the Northeast has knocked out power to 24,000 CVPS customers Friday morning. The effort will take days, CVPS said, as the storm is comparable to the ice storm of January 2007, and the infamous ice storm of ’98.CVPS line crews are working with outside contract crews to assess the damage and start making repairs this morning, however, road conditions and continuing sleet and ice accumulation are slowing the restoration effort. Hundreds of downed trees, tree limbs and downed lines have been reported across central and southern Vermont. Windsor and Windham counties were hit the hardest, with significant outages in Orange, Rutland and Bennington counties as well.”We are seeing an inch or more of ice in some of the southern areas. We have a half dozen transmission problems, and about 350 separate problems reported at this time,” said CVPS spokeswoman Christine Rivers. “Our crews are in assessment mode right now, and are working to repair the large transmission problems. At this point, it appears the restoration effort will carry into early next week. Our crews will be working around the clock to restore power as quickly as they safely can.”CVPS offered the following tips for safely coping with the outages:* Treat any downed line as if it is live. Report the line to your local utility and fire department, stay at least 30 feet away from the line, and keep children and pets away as well.* If using a generator, read and follow the owner’s manual before starting the generator. Never operate a generator inside any structure or near a structure. Use a transfer switch to ensure electricity is not accidentally fed onto a line where line crews must work.* Keep freezers and refrigerators closed as much as possible to prevent food spoilage.* Turn off all electrical appliances except one light so you’ll know when service returns. Then, turn equipment back on slowly.last_img read more

Hybrid wind-solar project in Minnesota may be perfect option for co-ops, municipalities

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Energy News Network:A trailblazing wind-solar hybrid project in western Minnesota could be a preview of what’s to come as renewable developers look for new ways to bolster projects.The project, developed and owned by Juhl Energy, is among the first of its kind in the country to pair wind and solar on the same site. A 2-megawatt turbine and 500-kilowatt solar installation share an inverter and grid connection, reducing equipment costs compared to two separate projects.The pairing is expected to start producing power this month. Lake Region Electric Cooperative in Pelican Rapids, about 30 miles north of Fergus Falls, will buy the power for its approximately 27,000 members.Juhl managing director Clay D. Norrbom said the plug-and-play nature of the system has attracted at least five other customers, including an industrial company in Iowa. Other customer prospects include cooperatives and municipally owned power providers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. He predicts Juhl will build at least three this year.“It opens another market that quite frankly five, 10 or 15 years ago was not there,” Norrbom said. “You couldn’t supply to a municipal co-op. The scale and efficiency weren’t good enough to do that. Now you can go and supply at that distribution voltage something that’s price competitive to the end customers.”The hybrid offers an opportunity to increase capacity. Wind turbines operate at a 50 to 55 percent capacity, Norrbom said, while solar in the Midwest sits at 15 percent. By combining power from both sources, the hybrid reaches a capacity factor of 65 to 70 percent, Norrbom said, at a cost substantially less than what Lake Region pays for electricity from its transmission and generation provider Great River Energy. Juhl decided against adding storage due to cost and regulatory issues, both challenges he predicts will dissipate in the future.More: Wind-solar pairing cuts equipment costs while ramping up output Hybrid wind-solar project in Minnesota may be perfect option for co-ops, municipalitieslast_img read more
