Governor Wolf Announces New Funding for Nine Projects to Promote Energy Efficiency and Spur Economic Development

first_img Economy,  Energy,  Environment,  Infrastructure,  Innovation,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced nine new project approvals through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA), that will benefit Pennsylvania residents and businesses through promoting energy efficiency and building out infrastructure to bring abundant energy to homes and commercial buildings.“Development of our energy infrastructure – whether through expanding access to natural gas, boosting the efficiency of buildings, or harnessing renewable energy resources like wind – are all vital to Pennsylvania’s economic health,” Governor Wolf said. “These projects approved today won’t just support our business sector, but it will also help residents by improving school buildings, enabling access to gas energy in homes, and creating jobs, bringing countless benefits to communities.”The approved projects include grants to support the purchase and installation of combined heat and power (CHP) systems, the renovation and construction of highly energy-efficient school buildings, the implementation of environmentally-friendly and economical manufacturing technology, and the purchase of wind turbines to harness renewable wind energy. The projects also include installation of pipelines that will bring Pennsylvania’s abundant natural gas energy resources to more than 500 residential and commercial customers, boosting economic development in the areas where the projects are located.The following nine projects were approved:Centre CountyState College Area School District was approved for a $1,737,720 grant through the Alternative and Clean Energy (ACE) program to assist with the costs of significant energy efficiency renovations at the Corl Elementary School in State College Borough. The 24,203-square-foot school, originally built in 1952, will be mostly demolished and reconstructed, with the undemolished portion of the building renovated. The result will be a 64,086-square-foot school with a high-efficiency geothermal HVAC system, LED lighting, efficient thermal envelope, daylight sensors, and low-flow plumbing fixtures. The new building is anticipated to reduce energy consumption by 633 MMBtu and reduce water use by 255,464 gallons annually. The total project cost is $17,377,208.Chester CountyOxiCool, Inc., a manufacturer of air conditioners, was approved for a $730,000 grant through the ACE program to incorporate a manufacturing line for the company’s TruckCool line of products, which uses molecular sieve-based technology to create air conditioning units for sleeper cabs of heavy-duty trucks. The sieve-based technology, created in a joint venture between OxiCool, Inc. and the U.S. Navy, will reduce truck idling for continued cooling of the cab by utilizing a small amount of diesel fuel or an alternative energy like solar panels as a source for power. The TruckCool unit will reduce the use of diesel fuel during engine idling by 90 percent, resulting in a reduction of 2,268 gallons per unit annually, and it will also enable the unit to use water in place of chemicals as a refrigerant, thus further reducing chemical emissions.

United ease to win over Villa

first_img The home fans went silent. The only noise heard inside the ground game from the plane, which was still buzzing around above the stadium and the Villa fans, who proclaimed Moyes as a “football genius”. De Gea fluffed a clearance thanks to a poor backpass from Alexander Buttner, almost allowing Benteke to double Villa’s lead. Then Rooney took the game by the scruff of the neck, finding space in the box and getting on the end of Shinji Kagawa’s pinpoint cross to head past Brad Guzan. The England striker would have a second soon after had it not been for a last-ditch tackle from Ciaran Clark and some impressing defending from Ron Vlaar. United had increased the pressure on the away side, but they still lacked quality and imagination in the final third. Too often it was a case of hit and hope for Moyes men. The game seemed destined for a half-time stalemate before Mata was brought down in the Villa box and Martin Atkinson pointed to the spot. Rooney held his nerve to power the ball to Guzan’s left and the home crowd started to relax. Moyes brought on Michael Carrick at half-time for Rafael. The England international slotted in at centre-back, with Phil Jones moving to right-back. Carrick proved his worth at centre-back against West Ham last weekend and he did so again here, sticking his boot in to deny Benteke a milisecond after the Belgian completely missed the ball going for a volley. Benteke missed another glorious chance soon after, heading over from six yards while unmarked. The home supporters began to fear a Villa equaliser but they started to breathe easily again when Mata scored his first goal for the club. Buttner’s header found Marouane Fellaini in the Villa box and he clumsily worked the ball to Mata off two away defenders – and the Spaniard stabbed it past Guzan. The sense of relief was clear on Moyes’ face. He came to the edge of his technical area and clapped. The fans again showed their support for the manager by singing the Scot’s name. Moyes brought off Rooney with next week’s game against Bayern Munich in mind. The crowd rose to their feet and clapped the striker off. Benteke conspired to miss yet another sitter, this time shooting wide from close range, again unmarked, before Hernandez made no such mistake in turning home fellow substitute Adnan Januzaj’s cross at the end. Moyes was clapped off the pitch and he returned the favour, going out of his way to aim his applause towards the Stretford End after the final whistle. An airborne protest over Old Trafford did not have any effect on the United team as a Wayne Rooney double, a goal from Juan Mata and another from Javier Hernandez lifted the pressure on Moyes. A group of United fans had clubbed together £840 to pay for a plane to be flown over Old Trafford. The message behind it spelled out their thoughts on the United manger: ‘Wrong One – Moyes Out’, it read. But if the fans thought it would help turn the tide of public support against Moyes then they were wrong. The home fans inside Old Trafford booed as the plane circled overhead and Moyes’ name was sang on several occasions. This was far from a vintage display and United are still huge outsiders for a top-four finish. But at least the margin of victory will provide Moyes and his players with some breathing space. Ashley Westwood gave Villa an early lead but Rooney scored twice – once from the penalty spot – to ease nerves. United turned on the style after the break. Mata bagged his first goal for the club and Hernandez wrapped up the victory in injury time. Moyes received a warm welcome when he emerged from the tunnel and the grateful United manager showed his appreciation by waving to all four corners of the ground. The plane emerged just after the start of the game – and in the 11th minute United were behind. Rafael barged over Christian Benteke on the edge of the box to earn a booking and Westwood responded by sending a dipping free-kick over the wall and beyond a stretching David de Gea. David Moyes ended a difficult week on a high as Manchester United cruised to an easy 4-1 win over Aston Villa. Press Associationlast_img read more
