Lyft raises $1 billion, led by Alphabet’s CapitalG 20.10.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
In a move that escalates the ride-hailing wars, Lyft said Thursday it has raised $1 billion in new financing led by CapitalG, the venture investment arm of Alphabet. The funding values Lyft at $10 billion before the introduction of new capital. That is a significant jump from the San Francisco company’s last valuation of $6.9 billion. The new investment further complicates the convoluted web of financial relationships in the ride-hailing industry, where companies like Lyft and Uber have hauled in enormous amounts of funding from firms that often put money into competing companies.

Toyota’s own brand topped the rankings, followed by the company’s luxury Lexus brand. Kia, Audi and BMW rounded out the top five. Cadillac, GMC, Ram, Dodge and Volvo got the poorest reliability scores, dinged by buyers’ problems with their infotainment systems and transmissions.

Big solar farms push to help fix state power fluctuations 20.10.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Big solar farms helped create a power-grid predicament in California. And now they’re offering to help solve it. Solar panels have proliferated in the state, flooding the grid with power supplies in the middle of the day when the sun’s out — and then quickly vanishing after sunset. This has created a sharp curve in California’s net-power demand that’s shaped like a duck. And the duck curve is getting steeper every year, sending wholesale electricity prices plunging into negative territory, forcing generators offline and making it increasingly difficult to maintain the reliability of California’s transmission lines.
