More Solar Ahead for Multifamily Buildings

first_imgOfficials from California and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have outlined plans to increase spending on energy efficiency and solar energy for multifamily buildings in the state.In a news release, the White House said that a pilot program in California would tap into a type of financing called Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE).According to the website DSIRE Solar, PACE financing allows property owners to borrow money from local governments, spreading the cost of solar installations over a long period of time. Loans are repaid with a special assessment on property taxes, a utility bill, or another locally collected tax.California Gov. Jerry Brown plans to establish a PACE pilot partnership with the MacArthur Foundation to allow certain multifamily projects access to this “robust source of capital” for installing renewable energy systems and making energy and water efficiency retrofits.In California alone, there are more than 3 million multifamily housing units. Improving energy efficiency of multifamily buildings on a national scale by 20 percent would save $7 billion in energy costs a year, the White House said.The government launched its Better Buildings Challenge in 2011 with the goal of making commercial, industrial and multifamily space 20 percent more efficient by 2020. The new effort in California is part of the government’s goal of installing 100 megawatts of renewable energy in federally subsidized housing by then.last_img read more

Anal cancer is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) in up to ninety percent of cases. In 2013, The Farrah Fawcett Foundation joined forces with Stand Up To Cancer to create the SU2C-FFF Translational Research Team for HPV-related cancers, headed by Dr. Ellis Reinherz and Dr. Robert Haddad at Dana Farber in Boston. The Team is now conducting a clinical trial with a therapeutic vaccine for those patients that have no other treatment options. The FFF is also committed to creating patient assistance funds, and supports prevention and awareness programs.FFF President and CEO Alana Stewart welcomed guests to the 2017 Tex-Mex Fiesta with a special tribute video, asking guests to take a moment to remember the organization’s founder and namesake, Farrah Fawcett. Guests then turned their attention to the screens to watch a moving video tribute to Fawcett.

Dr. Piro returned to the stage to present Merck & Co. with the Medical Visionary Award for their incredible work in the medical field, which led to the development of Gardasil and the Gardasil 9 vaccine. Gardasil 9 revolutionized options for HPV related cancers and disease prevention. Stephen Wozny accepted on behalf of the organization.Guests also enjoyed a live auction led by George Hamilton that had them bidding on coveted items such as a 10-person dinner at The Palm, and a sculpture made by Fawcett herself, before country musician Stephanie Quayle closed out the evening with a special musical performance.
