  • The 40-megawatt facility was constructed over a flooded former coal-mining region

  • These floating apparatus free up land in more populated areas and also reduce water evaporation. The cooler air at the surface also helps to minimize the risk of solar cell performance atrophy, which is often related to long-term exposure to warmer temperatures.

  • Is 40 MW a lot? Not really. Most coal-fired plants are over 1,000. See source 2 for list of bigger solar projects.

I tried watching live but my stupid cell phone wouldn't maintain a solid enough bandwidth to do it, kept dropping to like 0.25 Megabit down on the speedtest app.

  • Two Twitter users who were blocked by Trump after they criticized the president are claiming that their exclusion from being one of Trump's followers amounts to a First Amendment breach of their constitutional rights.

  • The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University is asking Trump to unblock anyone he has blocked on Twitter.

  • Because politicians are harnessing social media as a means of political discourse, the institute calls Trump's account a "designated public forum."

  • "When new communications platforms are developed, core First Amendment principles cannot be left behind,"

  • The letter also makes the same request for the president's @POTUS account.

  • The institute said it might sue if its clients' Twitter feeds remain blocked.

Source 2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_photovoltaic_power_stations

 

  • China has announced that the largest floating photovoltaic facility on earth has been completed and connected to the local power grid.

  • This is the Chinese government’s latest achievement in its ongoing effort to lead the world in renewable energy adoption.

  • The 40-megawatt facility was constructed over a flooded former coal-mining region

  • These floating apparatus free up land in more populated areas and also reduce water evaporation. The cooler air at the surface also helps to minimize the risk of solar cell performance atrophy, which is often related to long-term exposure to warmer temperatures.

  • Is 40 MW a lot? Not really. Most coal-fired plants are over 1,000. See source 2 for list of bigger solar projects.
