Nigerians starved of electricity turn to solar 21.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Johannesburg • The surprise was finding that people dependent on candles, batteries, kerosene and fuel for generators in countries without a secure supply of electricity spend more on power than solar options. The founders of Dutch company Lumos knew they could do better. In Nigeria, for the cost of powering a small generator for two hours they offer enough solar power to light a house, cool a room with a fan and charge cell phones for about eight hours. Customers can even watch TV for a few hou...

Seeding the Future Against Destructive Neoliberal Capitalism 18.2.2017 Truthout.com
Speakers at a seed exchange near the Río Santiago in México share planting tips. (Photo: Michael Meurer) The current oppressive neoliberal economic philosophy and its destructive regime of globalized capital is not inevitable. Just as the collapse of the Berlin Wall came out of small local civic movements, many powerful new political and civic movements are growing in Latin America, Europe and the US, offering a future of radical hope. Speakers at a seed exchange near the Río Santiago in México share planting tips. (Photo: Michael Meurer) There was much bluster about US job losses under NAFTA in the 2016 election, but walking along the banks of the Río Santiago in the pueblo of Juanacatlán, Mexico , the larger impact of the agreement immediately becomes a searing reality. One's eyes and skin burn after only a few minutes' exposure to the toxic spray and sulfurous stench as foaming waves of chemical pollution cascade over a once pristine falls known only a few decades ago as the Niagara of Mexico .

Tesla plugs big batteries into PG&E’s electric grid 16.2.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
[...] at this installation, at a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. substation in Browns Valley (Yuba County), the batteries soak up electricity whenever it’s cheap and feed it back onto the grid when demand hits its daily peak. The project, operational since the start of the month, represents a collaboration between PG&E and Tesla on one of California’s biggest energy goals — energy storage. [...] state regulators have ordered utilities to invest in projects to store energy when it’s plentiful and use it when it’s needed most. The Browns Valley project may also help PG&E avoid upgrading that substation to handle rising electricity demand in the area. The PG&E project, designed and installed by Cupertino Electric, includes 22 Tesla Powerpack batteries, which together can store half a megawatt of electricity. The company estimates that one third of the battery cells produced at its rapidly expanding Gigafactory will go toward stationary storage products, rather than cars. [...] as the number of energy ...
