Total awarded a solar power generation plant in South Africa
Total increases its footprint in South Africa through award of 86 MWp* solar power plant using affiliate SunPower’s leading technology as part of the government’s tender for renewable energy generation facilities
Paris, 5th November 2013 - Total S.A. (« Total ») (CAC : TOTF.PA) announced being selected as the preferred bidder for an 86 megawatt-peak (MWp) ground-mounted solar power project by South Africa’s Department of Energy (DoE), as part of the third round of tenders for renewable energy generation facilities.
Total’s affiliate, SunPower Corporation (« SunPower ») (NASDAQ : SPWR), a global solar energy leader offering solutions unmatched in efficiency, reliability and performance, provided the photovoltaic specifications for the project. SunPower also is expected to provide Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) services and long-term Operation and Maintenance for the project.
This solar power project of 86 MWp will deliver clean, reliable energy to the community. The solar power plant is expected to generate approximately 210 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of power each year, which represents the electricity consumption of approximately 45,000 South Africans.
“We are pleased to have been selected for this solar project by the Department of Energy. This project proves we can deliver, with our affiliate SunPower, the best technology at a competitive price”, said Philippe Boisseau, President, Marketing & Services and New Energies and a member of the Executive Committee of Total. “Total has been present in South Africa for almost 50 years and remains very committed to the country. As a world leader in the solar industry, we are pleased to assist South Africa in the diversification of its energy mix, with the development of increased solar capacity in the country, along other energy sources. We believe there is a huge potential in the solar market”, he con
Southwest, the largest U.S. discount airline, said Oct. 24 that fuel costs were down 3.2 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier as the company reported record third-quarter profit. Tammy Romo, the carrier’s chief financial officer, said yesterday that the airline would spend about $3 a gallon this quarter, 9.6 percent less than last year. United, the nation’s largest carrier, paid 2.2 percent less for fuel in the three months through September.
Fuel is often an airline’s largest expense, accounting for as much as a third of operating costs. Carriers have focused on reducing consumption by replacing older aircraft with more-efficient models, adding special wing tips to reduce drag, installing lighter-weight seats and removing unused galleys.
Okay, I lied about you being able to keep your present coverage, and we lied about you being able to choose your own doctor, andI lied about you being able to see specialists without referrals, and I lied about premiums not going up, and I lied about not imposing taxes, and I lied about the act paying for itself, and I lied about the website being ready, and I lied about instituting mandates, and I lied about the penalties, and I lied about the deadlines, and I lied about...well, just about everything. Now, what are you going to do about it? Not much, after all, the law is the law and I can't just change it...well, I could but that would prove the Republicans were right, so shut up, drink the kool-aid and trust to us how best to manage your lives. Oh, and by the way, about all of that stuff I just said; We're real sorry
Delta said that it would spend $150 million to acquire the Trainer refinery, which has been shuttered for six months, after receiving $30 million from the state of Pennsylvania as part of a deal to support job creation.
The airline said it would spend $100 million more to refurbish the plant to increase its output of jet fuel.
Richard H. Anderson, Delta’s chief executive, said the investment was a modest one, equivalent to the list price of a new wide-body plane like a Boeing 777. The company estimated that it would reduce its annual fuel expense by $300 million, once the refinery was refurbished and operating again.
I sold at $33.70 the other day. I still think SPWR drops to around 25, then might jump in based upon the prevailing winds.
