Natural Gas & Coal Power Generators Sue State of New York

    (Provided by Steven Nameroff - Tuesday, October 25, 2016)

Power Generators

The state of New York has a rough road ahead. The state is currently being sued by local and state natural gas and coal power plant providers. The lawsuit takes the state of New York into federal court over billions that are promised to 4 nuclear power plants.

The state’s new “Clean Energy Standard” sets the promise of steep carbon reduction and has long been pushed and promoted by Governor Andrew Cuomo. Struggling nuclear power plants hope to claim the benefits if all goes well in court. Only time will tell.

Experts in power provided through fossil fuels (coal and natural gas) filed their complaint in Manhattan late this year. The lawsuit stipulates that the “New York Public Service Commission” will shrink prices artificially with their promise of “zero emissions credits” dramatically placing various fossil fuel power generators at a large disadvantage. The total amount to be subsidized over 12 years would amount to a staggering $7.6 billion.

A New Era of Nuclear-Powered Batteries?

    (Provided by Steven Nameroff - Monday, October 17, 2016)

Nuclear Energy - Power Generators

The public has always had a love-hate relationship with the very idea of nuclear energy, as can be observed by its consistent role in apocalyptic scenarios in pop culture, video games and the movies. However, in reality, nuclear energy is mostly used for good – to power satellites, provide megawatts of electricity for the power grid, and make batteries with greater energy density than the chemical alternative.

Recently, scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, have improved on NASA’s nuclear battery design for powering satellites by making them more efficient and longer lasting. Given that the goal of space exploration is to go deeper and deeper into space, these batteries will allow them to go further – without using as much radioactive plutonium.

Emergency Continuity Plan

When your business is faced with a major storm or a natural disaster, you never really know how extensive the damage will be.  There are things that you know will probably happen but depending on the level of the disaster, it is difficult to really assess how your business will survive the disaster.
