N. American leaders to make pledge renewables 28.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • The leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico will pledge this week to rely on renewable energy to generate 50 percent of North America’s electrical power by 2025, White House officials said Monday. That’s a big jump from last year’s 37 percent level. But it’s doable through greater efficiency and reliance on solar, wind and other clean energy sources, Brian Deese, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, said. “The transformation of the American energy sector that’s underway...

Testing the clean-energy logic of a Tesla-SolarCity merger 24.6.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
Meters and software would manage the flow of power, allowing homeowners and businesses to seamlessly buy and sell electricity at the best prices, simultaneously lowering their costs and raising the amount of green energy on the grid. That is the long-term vision behind the plan that Elon Musk described this week, explaining the rationale for Palo Alto’s Tesla to acquire San Mateo’s SolarCity and create the “world’s only vertically integrated energy company.” Several analysts and investors have questioned the wisdom of adding to both companies’ financial pressures — between them the companies lost more than $1.6 billion last year — and potentially distracting Tesla from building its enormous battery factory in Nevada and bringing its first moderately priced car to market next year. [...] some energy experts and investors say, there is logic in combining Tesla, where Musk is CEO, and SolarCity, where he is chairman. Describing Tesla automobiles as “batteries wrapped in a car,” Shawn Kravetz, founder of ...

Colorado Master Gardeners: Drip your way to a healthy, water-wise garden 15.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Thinking about changing your garden from a traditional sprinkler system to drip? Dazed and confused in the irrigation aisle at the garden center? No budget for an irrigation contractor? Fear not, drip irrigation is easier than it looks. First, draw a plan of your yard. Use one corner of the lot or the house as your “control point,” measure the distance to all features from this point and transfer the measurements to paper, using ¼ inch to represent 1 foot in the field. Locate big things first — the house, other structures, trees, shrubs, driveway and walkways. Then locate the exterior faucets and water supply to any existing irrigation system. Measure and draw existing and planned flower and vegetable beds and turf areas. When complete, make a couple copies of the drawing for planning purposes. Next, group plants with similar water requirements into single zones and consider how often each plant grouping/zone needs water. Turf should be irrigated with traditional sprinklers on its own zone(s) — avoid ...
