Nation's Largest EV Charging Station Installation by an Electric Utility: Kansas City, Missouri.

Installation of the charging stations began in late 2014 and will be completed this summer. The first stations deployed on the network will include 15 fast charging stations provided by Nissan and KCP&L, which will charge any model of electric vehicle on the market.

The Sunshine State Discovers Sunshine.

Leading utility Florida Power and Light (FPL) to add 225 MW of new solar power to the 110 MW it already operates.

Duke University Research: Climate Models Disagree On Why Temperature “Wiggles” Occur.

“This doesn’t mean greenhouse gases aren’t causing Earth’s atmosphere to warm up in the long run,” lead author Patrick T. Brown emphasized. “It just means the road to a warmer world may be bumpier and less predictable, with more decade-to-decade temperature wiggles than expected. If you’re worried about climate change in 2100, don’t over-interpret short-term trends. Don’t assume that the reduced rate of global warming over the last 10 years foreshadows what the climate will be like in 50 or 100 years.”

Atmospheric Warming Heats the Top and Bottom of Greenland's Ice Sheets.

Meltwater from the surface of an ice cap in northeastern Greenland can make its way beneath the ice and become trapped, refilling a subglacial lake. This meltwater provides heat to the bottom of the ice sheet.

These groundbreaking findings provide new information about atmospheric warming and its affect on the critical zone at the base of the ice. The warmth provided by the water could make the ice sheet move faster and alter how it responds to the changing climate.

UQM Technologies Granted Patent on Electric Vehicle Motor Design that Allows the Use of Non-Rare Earth Magnets.

This new design provides a similar level of performance to UQM’s current design, and once the development is completed will allow UQM the flexibility to choose between these systems depending on projected magnet costs into the future.

Major test run

Took her out for her first serious test run on the 23rd January. Everything performed very well. Ran the electric motor for over an hour at 4 knots. The batteries still had plenty of charge left in them. My prediction of motoring for 3 hours at 4.5 to 5 knots is looking good. The outbound trip was against the tide and the yacht has not been anti fouled in 2 years. In the tropics the growth underneath is very fast. Once she is antifouled I will get another 1.5 knots.Charged the battery bank via…See More

I am looking for these as an easier option to installing a traditional propeller shaft, struts, packing box, etc.  Anyone know of a good source to purchase to purchase two sail drives and use a verticle attachment for my electric motors?
