Valdosta Vimeo

I've been nagging Valdosta for years about putting some of their cable TV station content on the web. Turns out they are already doing some of that, which is a step towards acting like a modern metropolitan area. Received Wednesday via Tim Carroll; I added the links and the [clarification].

Councilman Carroll,

Thank you for the recent phone call. As a result, I will research the Austin, Tx media practices to see if they can be implemented in any way here at Metro 17. We used to include a council wrap segment in each show, and I'll ask Shemeeka [Johnson, Valdosta Channel 17 Media Coordinator] why we took that out. But we can easily add that back in.

Solar water heaters on Housing Authority building

If they can do this in California, why can’t we do it here?

Sustainable City Network posts, Housing Authority Completes 28-Collector Solar Thermal System:

The City of Alameda, Calif., announced the completion of a solar water-heating system installed at a Housing Authority building on Park Street. Designed and built by SunWater Solar, the system will reduce utility bills by meeting up to 70 percent of the 65-unit building’s hot water load. The system is powered by 28 Heliodyne Gobi 410 collectors. A Heliodyne Delta T Pro monitoring device will provide online access to system performance data.

The Park Street system was recently approved for a $42,785 California Solar Initiative-Thermal rebate that will help cover the system’s $139,000 cost. CSI-Thermal rebates are currently at their highest tier: $12.82 per therm of natural gas offset. SunWater Solar contributed to the development of the CSI-Thermal program and has administered $237,000 in CSI-Thermal rebates on behalf of clients.
