first_imgNew England transmission operator projects sharp rise in solar generation through 2028 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Platts:ISO New England Tuesday discussed its 2019 solar power capacity forecast with stakeholders, which showed a regional cumulative installed capacity increase to 6,744 MW in 2028 from 2,884 MW at the end of 2018, a 134% jump.The grid operator’s Final 2019 PV Forecast that was presented to the Distributed Generation Forecast Working Group and posted on ISO-NE’s website, estimates the region will add 463.1 MW of total nameplate installed solar power capacity in 2019. Massachusetts is expected to provide 63%, or 292 MW, of the 2019 increase, with Connecticut providing the second-largest incremental increase of 68.4 MW.The grid operator’s regional annual solar energy forecast estimates 4,047 GWh will be produced in 2019, a figure that increases to 8,511 GWh in 2028.Properly accounting for behind-the-meter solar power output is important because these resources are connected to the distribution system and do not directly participate in the wholesale power markets. BTM solar resources impact the wholesale market by reducing load.BTM solar PV systems are forecast to reduce estimated summer peak load by 707.6 MW in 2019 and 1,050.6 MW in 2028, according to the grid operator.More: ISO-NE estimates solar power capacity will jump 134% over the next decadelast_img read more

Strauss to undergo heart operation

first_img “Following the result of extensive medical tests, it has emerged that Ireland hooker Richardt Strauss has been diagnosed with a heart condition and will be unavailable for selection for the remainder of the season,” Leinster said, in a statement. “The management are confident that the 27-year-old, who is set to undergo surgery this week, will make a full recovery and will provide him with the best care in his recovery.” Strauss joined Leinster in 2009 and he has been an integral part of their squad since then, playing key roles in the 2010 and 2012 Heineken Cup final victories over Northampton and Ulster, respectively. Leinster, meanwhile, rate star centre Brian O’Driscoll as having a 50-50 chance of being fit for next Saturday’s Heineken opener against the Ospreys in Swansea. O’Driscoll is nursing a calf muscle strain, and Leinster say at this stage he has not been ruled out of the selection mix. South Africa international back Zane Kirchner could also be in the frame for next weekend after linking up with his new team-mates following commitments in the Rugby Championship. Strauss, 27, is set to undergo surgery this week, his provincial team Leinster announced. The South Africa-born player made his Ireland debut against the Springboks last year. He has won four caps, but missed the whole of last season’s RBS 6 Nations Championship because of an ankle ligament injury. Ireland international hooker Richardt Strauss has been diagnosed with a heart condition and he will not play again this season.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

On the (medical) record with Lystra John

first_imgShe is a member of the American Health Information Management Association which certifies the RHIT. After a decade in the medical industry, John says there are no regrets. She believes being a RHIT has “helped me grow. It’s a fulfilling job knowing you are securing people’s health records.” Registered Health Information TechnicianNine years ago, John became a Registered Health InformationTechnician (RHIT). She is currently the Health Information Management (HIM) director at Florida Medical Center (FMC) in the City of Lauderhill. John earned her RHIT certificate from Miami Dade College and has worked in the field for nine years, starting with North Shore Medical before going to FMC. Teaches HIMShe also teaches HIM at Miami Dade College. Like the situation cited in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois, she has noticed an increase in persons becoming RHITs in South Florida. The precarious nature of the financial sector in 2008 influenced her to consider a career change shortly after she relocated to the Sunshine State. “When I relocated here from New York a lot of jobs were being outsourced and the economy was changing, so I decided to change as well,” she stated. “Definitely, and the demographics are changing. We see a lot more Caribbean people and Hispanics, a lot more males. I’m glad they’re doing this,” she said. TrinidadianLystra John is from Trin City Orange Grove in east Trinidad. She migrated to Montreal, Canada, 20 years ago, then went to New York where she earned an executive masters’ degree in business administration from Baruch College. Increasingly attractive fieldThe RHIT field has become increasingly attractive. Last year, the University of Wisconsin reported that, “In the past five years, the number of Registered Health Information Administrators who passed the RHIA exam in Wisconsin nearly tripled.” That trend is even more positive in the neighboring states of Minnesota and Illinois. An RHIT compiles data on patients and transfers it to administration for coding, or medical records as it was once known. “It’s a very important field. Once a patient goes through their procedure everything comes to the HIM. We put codes in place so the hospital can be reimbursed,” John explained. By Howard CampbellWhen Lystra John moved to South Florida from New York just over 10 years ago, she had cut her teeth in the financial industry. But the recession that hit the United States in 2008 influenced a career change.last_img read more
