AFD commits to funding geothermal plant

first_imgLocalNews AFD commits to funding geothermal plant by: – June 25, 2013 Sharing is caring! Share Share Tweetcenter_img Share 35 Views   2 comments Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Roosevelt SkerritThe Agence Francaise Development (AFD) has given a commitment to finance the construction of a megawatt plant in Dominica, Prime Minister and Finance Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has announced. The Prime Minister made the announcement at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon following discussions with AFD in Paris, France last week Thursday.“AFD has said to us very clearly that they are prepared to finance the construction of the 15 megawatt plant in Dominica, of course, subject to a formal request by the government of Dominica for the financing,” Mr Skerrit said.This 15 megawatt plant will be for domestic consumption and it is expected to significantly reduce the cost of electricity. The Prime Minister led a four member delegation; including Energy Minister Rayburn Blackmoore, to Paris after French company, Electricite de France (EDF) withdrew from the project.The Dominica government and EDF entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly pursue the best options for the construction of a plant for domestic supply and another 120 megawatt plant for export to Guadeloupe and Martinique via undersea cable in January, 2013.The aim of the project is to provide 50 megawatts to Martinique and 50 megawatts to Guadeloupe, thus reducing their dependence on fossil energies, while at the same allowing Dominica to be supplied entirely with green energy.Mr Skerrit also revealed that the French Government has confirmed that they will purchase energy from Dominica and as such will play a “very critical role in the construction, management and financing of the bigger plant [120 megawatts]”.According to Mr Skerrit, ADF also committed to providing the Dominica Government with technical assistance, by paying for legal experts to further review the geothermal bill and with the drafting of regulations for these legislations.The AFD also negotiated with the European Union on Dominica’s behalf for over $1.1 million Euros to go towards providing technical assistance for the creation of a project development unit. The Prime Minister noted that the technical assistance which will be for a period of about 5 years “will be very critical to us, as we do not yet have the capacity and the human resources and the technical skills to deal with all issues relating to geothermal energy”.He said ADF further indicated that they are prepared to assist with providing training to train Dominicans in first degree, master’s degree and even PhD level.This training will help “to create this critical mass within the country to properly manage and develop the geothermal resource in our country”. It is anticipated that by 2014 the construction of the small plant will commence. To date, the Dominica Government has invested in excess of $33 million in the exploratory and preparatory phases of the geothermal project.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

MLB plan saves big-spending teams $100M each

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US COMMENT The New York Yankees, Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers would each save more than $100 million on player salaries as part of management’s proposal to start the coronavirus-delayed season than they would under the union’s plan, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.Top stars accustomed to eye-popping salaries that set them apart from mere All-Stars would experience by far the steepest cuts. Set to earn $36 million each, Mike Trout and Gerrit Cole would get $25.3 million under the union’s plan and a base of $5.6 million under the team’s proposal with the chance to get back to about $8 million if the postseason is played. A rookie at the minimum would get $396,537 from the union plan and $256,706 from the MLB proposal — not much more than the $222,222 per game Trout and Cole originally were slated to earn.The Yankees project to pay $155 million to players under the union’s plan, according to the AP analysis based on frozen March 28 rosters, and spend $48 million on salary under management’s proposal. The Astros drop from $149 million to $46 million and the Dodgers from $147 million to $46 million.Lower-spending teams save, too, but not nearly as much because their starting points are lower. Miami is at $33 million under the union’s plan and $16 million under MLB’s. Pittsburgh’s salaries would drop from $36 million to $17 million and Baltimore’s from $43 million to $18 million.A player with a $20 million salary, like St. Louis All-Star catcher Yadier Molina, would get be guaranteed just below $4 million under the MLB plan and about $14.1 million under the union plan. Tampa Bay pitcher Charlie Morton’s $15 million salary would be cut to a $3.2 million base under the MLB plan and $10.6 million under the MLB proposal.Philadelphia catcher J.T. Realmuto’s $10 million salary would drop to a $2.4 million base as part of the MLB proposal and to $7 million under the union plan.Milwaukee pitcher Brett Anderson would fall from $5 million to $1.4 million in MLB’s plan and to $3.5 million in the union’s formula.“Interesting strategy of making the best most marketable players potentially look like the bad guys,”MLB and the union have been making plans to start the season next month in ballparks without fans, and teams say they will sustain huge losses. In response to the union’s stance, MLB is considering proposing a much shorter schedule,The pandemic-induced stoppage has wrecked baseball’s finances. MLB say that by playing in empty ballparks, teams would combine to lose $640,000 for each additional regular-season game.Teams also say they fear extending play deep into the fall, as the union proposes, would risk a second wave of the coronavirus that would prevent the postseason from being played.Both sides have said they hope to start the season around the beginning of July, and talks may intensify next week. Some on the players’ side fear teams may attempt to implement a relatively short schedule, which could provoke the threat of a grievance and to play while seeking money damages.The AP study looked solely at 2020 salaries and did not include prorated shares of signing bonuses, which are guaranteed when a contract is signed and approved by the commissioner’s office.
