A ribbon cutting for 30+ MW of solar power in Social Circle, Georgia,
with no media coverage,
other than a Georgia Power docket update buried at GA PSC.
Claudia Musleve Collier says she made this first quote from email to her,
and wants it shared.
Bryan Casey, with Greenavations Power sent me these photos of the
recent [13 May 2014] ribbon cutting of their 38 MW solar project in middle
Georgia[, Simon Solar in Social Circle].
PSC “Bubba” McDonald was present to flip the switch!
A challenge gets the
incumbents beyond selling slow and expensive as long as they can.
Both these networks will use fiber optics, and that plus fast wireless to
reach everybody else would be very interesting.
The company said on late Monday that it would launch its “GigaPower”
super-fast home Internet service on December 1 in Austin, a city
that Google has said it would deploy its own speedy Google Fiber
GigaPower would start with speeds of 300 megabit per second, or
roughly 40 times the speed of the average U.S. Internet home
connection, before upgrading customers to 1 gigabit per second next
year. Google also plans to offer its own 1-gigabit connection some
time next year.
Here’s the Georgia Supreme Court’s own video of
S13A0992 Turner County v. City of Ashburn et al.
Tuesday, June 4, 2013.
It starts with the attorney for Turner County, Walter Elliott
(who is also Lowndes County Attorney)
apparently arguing that the courts shouldn’t intervene because
only legislative bodies should decide on taxes.
The judges didn’t seem to understand his argument.
One judge wondered how disputes would be settled then.
Elliott said the local elected bodies would decide or the tax
wouldn’t be levied.
Another judge pointed out that legislative bodies could delegate
Later the same judge asked how to distinguish this case from
a child custody case as far as criteria and a court being
able to decide.
Elliott claimed that was a judicial function, but allocating
tax dollars was not.
The judges didn’t seem to be buying the city attorney’s argument later, either.
Funny how the Supreme Court of Georgia videos its sessions,
but the Lowndes County Commission does not.
