Awards are expected to be announced in Q2 2019. If needed, a second solicitation will be issued in 2019.Through the solicitations, NYSERDA will procure offshore wind renewable energy certificates (ORECs) from awarded facilities. Each electric utility and other third-party suppliers of electricity serving retail customers in New York will support these new offshore wind resources through the purchase of ORECs from NYSERDA.The New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan announced earlier this year by Governor Cuomo will guide the state in the responsible and cost-effective development of 2,400 MW of offshore wind by 2030. The governor also directed NYSERDA to invest US$15M in clean energy workforce development and infrastructure advancement to train workers to support the growth of the offshore wind industry.In June, NYSERDA was awarded a US$18.5M Department of Energy grant to lead the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium. This nationwide offshore wind research and development consortium will be supported through a public-private partnership including the offshore wind industry, utilities, research laboratories, and other states.More: Cuomo kick-starts New York offshore wind with 800 MW procurementlast_img read more

Shafer praises Wake Forest wide receiver Campanaro

first_imgSince his sophomore season, Michael Campanaro has been one of the most productive weapons in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He notched a career-best 833 receiving yards in 2011 and could surpass that mark Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against Syracuse in the Carrier Dome — he has 792 so far this year.During the teleconference, Shafer had lofty praise for the Wake Forest wide receiver.“He reminds me of Wes Welker,” Shafer said.Campanaro has hauled in 65 balls and tallied 100 receiving yards three times this year, including a 177-yard day against Louisiana-Monroe in September. Against the Orange in 2011, Campanaro had 79 yards through the air.What sets him apart, Shafer said, are many of the same attributes that separate the Denver Broncos wide receiver from other wideouts.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s good at finding the windows,” Shafer said, “and the combination of his ability to just slide in pockets.”At 5 feet, 11 inches and 190 pounds, Campanaro is built similarly to the 5-foot-9, 185-pound Welker.At Texas Tech, Welker had bigger junior and senior campaigns — he topped 1,000 yards in each — but Campanaro has been more consistent through his four years.Paired with quarterback Tanner Price’s ability to hit those spots, Campanaro can “make some really good plays,” Shafer said. In the Demon Deacons’ win over Maryland on Saturday, Campanaro became WFU’s all-time receptions leader with 217.“He’s just got great anticipation for where the windows are going to be,” Shafer said. “He’s got really good route-running technique and ability and he’s really good with his body control.“He’s a very good football player and we’ll have our hands full.” Comments Published on October 29, 2013 at 12:40 pm Contact David: | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
