“Before I got here, I liked the firetrucks the best, now I really like the big white truck,” said 4-year-old Oliver as he stares in amazement at the Southern California Edison bucket truck in front of Pretend City Children’s Museum in Irvine.
It is a land of spectacular natural beauty – an azure sky, rolling grassland, crystal-clear rivers, roaming herds of cattle, and, in summertime, blooming galsang flowers, a native floral species that symbolises the happiness of the Tibetan people.
This is the Pengbuxi township of Kangding in the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan province and home to a Tibetan girl called Sonam Baizom, who with her classmates enjoyed a memorable visit to their school last year.
With generator, makes the island more resilient, defers need for new transmission
WALTHAM, Mass., October 8, 2019 /3BL Media/ – National Grid today unveiled one of the largest battery energy storage resources in the Northeast United States. Built on the island of Nantucket, in Massachusetts, the facility will ensure electric reliability for customers during peak summer months and defer the need for construction of an additional underwater supply cable to the island.
SYRACUSE, N.Y., October 4, 2019 /3BL Media/ – To further its commitment to clean energy and electricity reliability for upstate New York customers, National Grid has opened a competitive bidding process for a minimum of 10 megawatts of energy storage in key locations across the company’s service area.

October brings cooler weather and marks Energy Awareness Month—a time to focus on conservation and saving energy. We think it’s the perfect opportunity for a power-down-to-play-outside challenge. We’ve put together a list of ideas to help.
A statement from Dean Seavers, President, National Grid, US
October 3, 2019 /3BL Media/ - “National Grid is committed to achieving deep decarbonization across the Northeast. The transportation sector, which is currently the largest emitter of greenhouse gases, is poised for meaningful and necessary reductions.
As more U.S. states offer incentives for renewable energy investment and costs for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels continue to decrease, it seems utility-scale battery energy storage is positioned to take charge of the next renewables revolution.
Electricity: the more our population grows, the more of it we need. And the more electricity we consume, the stronger the case for using renewable, non-polluting power sources in place of fossil fuels. Going forward, further innovation in solar and wind power technology is needed if we are to meet our future power supply goals.
