Arizona utility APS to exit coal by 2031, be carbon-free by 2050

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Arizona Republic:Arizona Public Service Co. will produce all of its electricity from carbon-free sources by 2050 and will get 45% of its power from renewable sources like solar and wind by the end of this decade, the company announced Wednesday.Meeting those goals will mean closing the company’s coal-fired Four Corners Power Plant in New Mexico by 2031, seven years ahead of schedule. The APS coal-fired Cholla Power Plant in Arizona already is scheduled to close in 2025.APS gets about 22% of its energy from those coal plants today.In addition to the energy it gets from coal today, APS gets just over one-fourth of its power from natural gas, meaning it will have to replace nearly half its energy supply by the midpoint of this century to meet the new goal.APS also runs the largest nuclear plant in the country, the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, which is about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix. It gets about 25% of its energy from the plant, which is co-owned by several utilities from California to Texas.[Ryan Randazzo]More: APS will eliminate carbon emissions by 2050 and close coal plant ahead of schedule, CEO says Arizona utility APS to exit coal by 2031, be carbon-free by 2050last_img read more

Pickett, Panthers eager to get season started vs Albany

Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi says sophomore quarterback Kenny Pickett doesn’t have to think he’s “Kenny Perfect.” Either way, Pickett will be the focal point for Pitt when the Panthers open the 2018 season on Saturday against Albany. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic, File) PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kenny Pickett’s first college start set almost impossible expectations for his second. Everywhere except inside the Pittsburgh locker room. While coach Pat Narduzzi understands the hype surrounding the sophomore quarterback — last seen engineering an upset of then second-ranked Miami in the 2017 regular season finale — Narduzzi also knows a reality check will come at some point. Perhaps as early as Saturday when the Panthers open against Albany.“I know everybody thinks he’s going to go out there and be ’Kenny Perfect,’” Narduzzi said. “That’d be in a perfect world. But nobody’s perfect. I don’t want to make Kenny tight like that where he’s got to play perfect. He’s still a baby.”Even if Pickett didn’t play like one while accounting for all three Pitt touchdowns in the victory over the Hurricanes. Nine months later he steps onto Heinz Field again eager to prove it was no fluke. The atmosphere will be different. So will the stakes. That’s fine by Pickett. A year ago he was running the scout team. Now he’s firmly entrenched as the starter.Will he be pumped? Yes. Will he show it? Meh.Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett (8) passes under pressure by defensive lineman James Folston Jr. (40) during their annual NCAA intrasquad college football spring Blue Gold game, Saturday, April 14, 2018, in Pittsburgh. The Blue team won 10-3. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)“I can’t be going nuts on the field, then I lose my mind and lose my read, what I have to do,” Pickett said. “Just stay calm, stay smooth from the first quarter to the last one.”The Panthers could use a steady hand at the wheel following a tumultuous 2017 in which they finished 5-7 and failed to reach a bowl game for the first time in a decade. A seemingly unending rotation at quarterback — from Max Browne to Ben DiNucci back to Browne back to DiNucci then ultimately to Pickett — didn’t help.Pickett’s rise could give Pitt long-term stability , though he is quick to point out he’s just one part of an offense he believes will be “explosive” under second-year coordinator Shawn Watson.“It’s our offense now this year,” Pickett said. “Last year we were 50/50. We didn’t know our identity really.”Now the Panthers believe they do. Senior running backs Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison are eager to bounce back after an underachieving 2017 . Fullback George Aston returns after missing most of last season due to injury. The receivers are largely inexperienced but Pickett is hardly concerned.“I feel really comfortable back there,” Pickett said. “I have trust in seven to eight guys to go in there and do exactly what the guy before them did. That’s something we didn’t have last year and we do this year. … It’s been countless hours of work and preparation and we’re ready to go.”Some things to look for as Pitt attempts not to get tripped up by the Great Danes.NO QB JITTERS: Albany QB Vince Testaverde Jr., a fifth-year graduate transfer at his third school, will start his first game for the Great Danes. The son of longtime NFL quarterback and 1986 Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde is a transfer from Miami, where his dad starred. He started his college career at Texas Tech and played in one game as a non-scholarship freshman in 2014, completing 15 of 26 passes for 116 yards against Texas, then transferred after one semester.Although his dad will be at the game, Vince says it will be business as usual.“I’m just going to play my game, tell everyone else just to play theirs,” said Testaverde, who will be playing in only his second game in college. “Nothing’s different. Football is football, no matter if we play in a small stadium, big stadium, wherever we play.”ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT: Narduzzi raised some eyebrows when he told a crowd of fans at a kickoff luncheon that he would see them in Charlotte — site of the ACC title game —at the end of the season. It’s a limb Narduzzi is willing to step out on thanks to the mentality of his 19 seniors.“I think we’ve got the talent, I think we have the mindset, I think we’ve got the chemistry to win a championship,” Narduzzi said. “Is that going to happen? We’ll find out.”OLD HOME WEEKEND: Albany head coach Greg Gattuso is a Pittsburgh native. He won eight MAAC championships in 12 seasons at Duquesne (1993-2004) and also worked on the Panthers’ staff for six seasons (2005- 11). This will be Albany’s second game ever against an FBS opponent.“They had an opening (on the schedule). It worked out. It was a much better idea four years ago than it is right now,” Gattuso said, joking. “But I’m excited about it, and I think the kids are really excited about it.“Ultimately, it’s a great experience for our athletes to play … against the team that just beat the No. 2 team in the country in their last game.”Albany offensive line coach Jim Sweeney is from Pittsburgh and a Pitt grad.___AP Sports Writer John Kekis in Syracuse, New York, contributed to this report.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25last_img read more
