    (June 17, 2021) - As part of a long-term goal to reduce energy expenses, the Monroe County Water Authority (MCWA) today announced plans to install a five megawatt (MW) solar energy array on its existing property at the corner of Penfield Rd. and Watson Hulbert Rd. in the Town of Penfield.

    Construction started this week and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The array will benefit MCWA customers by using clean, sustainable energy to offset its power bills and also help New York State achieve its clean energy targets including generating 70 percent of its electricity through renewable resources by 2030.

    (June 15, 2021) - Cities and utilities across the country are progressively adopting or increasing stormwater fees as a means to generate funding for capital projects related to mitigating surface runoff, treating runoff, or separating stormwater drains from the sanitary sewer system.

    Oftentimes, stormwater fees are assessed based on the area (square feet) of impervious surface and come in a variety of names such as rain tax, drainage fee, stormwater fee, or impervious tax.

    Regardless of the label, impervious areas create runoff, deplete groundwater recharge, spread pollutants, and have other negative effects on the environment which is why cities require funding to mitigate the impact.

    (June 08, 2021) - Energy markets and deregulation have seen changes over the years, but one thing has not; the need for a strategy vs. just being a price taker in the market. 

    Over the past 15-years, strategies implored have changed, but the need for one definitely has not. Flying by the seat of your pants can produce some of the lowest prices available, but it can also be very costly.  It is especially costly in the case of natural disasters that can affect short and long-term energy pricing.  Let me provide an example or two.

    Mercuria takes a step forward as a progressive industry player by increasing transparency of its shipping data and sharing it with the C4IR Oceans flagship project Ocean Data Platform.
