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].

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.
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.
