DONE DEAL – Everton sign young Barnsley defender Mason Holgate

first_imgEverton have confirmed the signing of teenage defender Mason Holgate from Barnsley for a fee understood to be an initial £1million.The 18-year-old has penned a five-year deal with the Premier League club, keeping him at Goodison Park until 2020.But Everton have insisted Holgate has not been signed as a potential replacement for fellow former Tykes youngster John Stones, who will not be sold to Chelsea, according to manager Roberto Martinez.Holgate is a product of the same Oakwell academy as Stones, who Everton signed from Barnsley for £3million in January 2013.Since Holgate made his League One debut last December, comparisons have been made with the England international.But Holgate has made only 22 first-team appearances for Barnsley and Martinez is keen to play those down.“Mason, at 18, has already played 20 games in League One and that shows the potential he has,” Martinez added.“He will be a phenomenal young prospect coming into that golden generation we feel we have at the club and he will be a good one for the future.“Mason is a completely different type of player to John but in terms of personality and character they are very similar.”Holgate had been linked with a move to Manchester United after spending time on trial with the club earlier in the summer, but an expected bid never materialised, while Bournemouth and Newcastle had also been interested. 1 New Everton signing Mason Holgate last_img read more

Vermont’s Renewable-Energy Tariff Becomes Law

first_imgNew legislation includes “feed-in” tariffs for wind, solar, biogas, and landfill power-production systems installed by individuals and businessesThe Vermont Energy Act of 2009 became law last week, setting the stage for owners of small renewable-energy facilities to collect “feed-in tariffs” for systems that pump power into the grid.The new law, which is designed to encourage individuals and businesses to install grid-connected renewable energy systems, applies to facilities of up to 2.2 megawatts capacity that are commissioned on or after September 30. Owners of most systems may sign power-purchase contracts of 10 to 20 years, although contracts for solar power systems can run up to 25 years. (Click here for a PDF of the legislation.)To strike a balance between encouraging renewable-energy system development and the possibility that system operators will reap excess profit at ratepayers’ expense, the “standard offer” rates currently set by the legislation are subject to adjustment by the Vermont Public Service Board. This was one of the mitigating provisions for Governor James Douglas, who objected to the standard offer rates as too generous but ultimately agreed to let the legislation become law (on May 27) without his signature.A reviewable tariff structureThe standard offer rates are 20 cents per kilowatt hour for wind energy plants of less than 15 kW and 14 cents for those of more than 15 kW; 12 cents per kilowatt hour for landfill and biogas systems; and 30 cents per kilowatt hour for solar installations.Under the law, the Vermont Public Service Board has the option to set interim rates before September 15 but must formally establish a rate structure by January 15, 2010.As the Department of Energy points out, the legislation also contains a number of other provisions, including one that eliminates a regulation requiring the state’s utilities to offer voluntary renewable-energy programs to their customers; one that extends the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund to include geothermal energy devices; a provision that encourages appropriate wind power development on state-owned lands; one that allows municipalities to finance renewable energy and energy efficiency projects; and one that directs clean energy development funds to two “Vermont village green” renewable pilot projects that will offer district heating to local homes and businesses, using a centralized heating system fueled with renewable energy.last_img read more

Indian duo Paes and Raja stun former champions

first_imgPublished on January 20, 2018 SHARE Indian doubles great Leander Paes has had 119 playing partners in his 27-year career and it appears his latest union could be a profitable one after he and compatriot Purav Raja knocked out former champions Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares on Saturday.Paes, 44, and Raja saved a match point in a near three-hour thriller before winning 7-6(3) 5-7 7-6(6).Journeyman Raja, who only took up tennis properly aged 17, was approached last year by Paes, who has won 18 grand slam doubles titles including the mixed event, and they joined forces for the U.S. Open where they lost in the second round.After working together in the off-season, however, Paes, the oldest man left in the tournament, is happy with his choice.Raja, 32, saved a match point at 6-5 in the tiebreak with a sensational reflex volley and then sealed victory over Briton Murray and Brazilian Soares with a backhand winner, to the delight of the Indians in the crowd.“I think we earned some street cred today as a pair, we were playing grand slam champions today and they kept on showing their class,” Paes said.“The way Purav played at the end, people have seen me do that, but he earned street cred today in the locker room.”Asked whether it would be a long-term arrangement, Paes said: “Come back to me in six months.”Raja, whose has earned only $380,000 as a professional and is ranked 68th in doubles, said his skills may not be the usual kind seen on Tour but his silky shots were certainly effective.“I don’t bomb the serve down at 200kph but I like to… catch players in my web,” the Millfield School-educated Mumbai resident told Reuters. “I like to put my style out there and believe in what I do.” SHARE SHARE EMAIL tennis COMMENT 0 COMMENTSlast_img read more
