Re: “TEP Wants to Install More Solar Panels With This New Program

This STUPID, we are paying for these Panels through our Electric Bills, TEP should put the panels in Fields or over parking lots creating shade and all facing South. Putting panels on roof that face East ,North, or West is a WASTE of money.

Re: “Jeff Flake: Obama "Was Right To Begin the Process of Normalizing Relations with Cuba"

Flake is just echoing the desires of his masters in the Chamber of Commerce who see Cuba as a raw source of resources and cheap labor to exploit and a vacation paradise (Varadero is one of the nicest beaches in the Caribbean)...

Unfortunately for corporate leeches like Flake and his buddies, the Cuban People are Socialist to the core and as such are unlikely to allow a few baubles and a wal-mart to overcome 55 years of struggle against corporate capitalist rape and pillage...

Flake and his buddies are likely to be greatly disappointed at their reception when they show up "ready to buy the place".

Just in case, f*ck the Blockade and visit Cuba on your own before the disgusting filth, litter, noise and disrespect of USAmerican tourists wreck some of the best bits...

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

Thank you, AME. I will be there. I am a white person who grew up in the racist cesspool of rural Missouri ... the killing of an unarmed teen by a white cop in Ferguson and the failure to indict does not surprise me one bit. Those who "think," as does trainsmanswife above, that everyone who misbehaves are treated the same by police simply have their heads in the sand (or the Fox network). Cliven Bundy is still walking free after his thugs aimed their guns at law enforcement; the white fool in Phoenix who went to the airport and aimed his gun at people is still walking free ... and on and on.

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

Cmon Carlos. Can you really say fatal force was warranted? Do you truly believe resisting arrest is grounds for killing someone? Aren't police trained to demobilize 'suspects'? Shouldnt deadly force be a last resort? Taking out cops is not a way to make things right. Killing people who have done little to nothing illegal isn't right.

Re: “Alex Trebek to Retire From 'Jeopardy!' in 2016

I think 2016 is too far down the road for him to retire. He has been making mistakes and horrible comments for the last three years. Examples: "Our champion has not lost a game yet." Duh, I do believe that is the definition of a Jeopardy champion. Had he lost, he wouldn't be there. And recently, after the commercial before the Final Jeopardy question he stated, "The contestants are going to need to know something about the Bible for Final Jeopardy." The category? The Bible!! But the worse to me is how he takes the limelight away from the contestants as he interviews them. His comments either undermine what they've said or worse, he tells a story about himself. His questions to them need to be more concise. I love Jeopardy, but I have grown to dislike ALex, which is a shame because up until the last three years I could at least tolerate him.

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

For all those who wonder why police shoot or otherwise kill unarmed lawbreakers (yes, both Brown and Garner were breaking the law and did not comply with law enforcement - a conveniently ignored fact), Ismaaiyl Brinsley just handed them a reason. Wise up, people, the cops aren't willy-nilly using black men for target practice. Individuals acting individually are involved in these situations. If the statistics are to change, then there need to be more black men on the right side of the law and fewer black men on the wrong side of the law. There also needs to be less of a super simplified us vs. them mentality and the realization that individuals need to take responsibility for their own destinies. Don't want to get shot by a cop? Don't break the law then attack law enforcement for catching you.

I think I found the crusty bitter racists who have been dropping off kkk pamphlets in the middle of the night. Keep cashing them disability checks.

Re: “Ron Barber: "It Has Been An Absolute Joy and Incredible Honor To Serve This Community"

SargeDude needs some grammar lessons. Improper sentence structure, run on sentences, missing punctuation, and even incorrectly capitalized and hyphenated words (Thesaurus-waving?). Sarge gets an "F" for his butchering of the english language.

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

I'm sure that Clarence Dupnik will speak this morning and blame the assassination of the two NYPD officers on Holder, Sharpton, Deblasio and Obama. Just like he did when Laughner shot and killed in Tucson at the Gabby Giffords Congress on the corner, when he blamed Palin and Limbaugh.

I bet he'll also blame Oprah and Whoopi.

Where is he?

Re: “Jeff Flake: Obama "Was Right To Begin the Process of Normalizing Relations with Cuba"

It is something that should have happened decades ago, but we were still butt hurt by the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

On the flip side, at least Cuba is not overrun by KFC and McDonalds.

I would like to see Cuba before we ruin it.

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

America has like all nations on this earth their social misfits, racists, bigots, sadists, war criminals, corrupt politicians, police, corrections, etc., the list is long and they wear suits, uniforms and truly in many cases believe their evil sin is going to be unpunished, awe and shock is awaiting them on judgment day, no lawyer, no amount of money, fame, political connection or lies will save them, and no earthly punishment can come close to a eternity on them banks of the lake of fire! I guess that is a great irony and many will be whining and crying for all eternity woe to me and why did I do the things I did!

Re: “TEP Wants to Install More Solar Panels With This New Program

Vote: Yes
Another way to get to the objective of moving local energy production/ local consumers to scale is by TEP/Producers taking a risk with a new program(s) and their customer/consumers taking a risk on incremental changes to existing that can save them money and so get their distracted attention..

Re: “TEP Wants to Install More Solar Panels With This New Program

Not burning coal for power just may save the future for all mankind. This plan deserves serious attention, and covering every home and business in all of Tucson would be amazingly effective with our sunshine. But questions... Since there is mention above - what about when you sell your home? Is the same deal transferable to the buyer, even though the clock started with the seller? And just where are neighborhoods that will "maximize benefits for the local electric grid." And aren't the panels installed and therefore chosen by TEP, hopefully with the same quality as those mentioned above?

Re: “Black Lives Matter Gathering Happening Tomorrow Afternoon

The tragedy in NY on Saturday was exactly what I feared would happen. The media, the Mayor, the AG and even the President did not discourage the actions of the masses. The grand jury had spoken. That is our system of justice.

In the end a gangster kills two MINORITY police sad.

Re: “TEP Wants to Install More Solar Panels With This New Program

If you're considering investing into a solar energy system for your home, it's wise to install the latest, aesthetically pleasing, highest performance technology you can afford. The key reason for this is the fact that the solar panels that you install today will probably be on your roof for the next 25 to 30 years before they'll need to be replaced.

Installing solar panels that already have an outdated look or that offer poorer performance today, can have a negative impact on your home's value in just a few short years after they've been installed.

The solar panels that most of the solar lease and PPA companies are installing today have the same aluminum framed, boxy look that existed back in the mid 50's when they were first introduced.

Today, new, Gen 2, frameless, 1/4 inch thin, see through, glass on glass, higher performance designs are available that can make all the difference in the world when attempting to sell your home.

These bifacial (double sided) solar panels actually produce extra power from their backside, from light that is reflected off the roof's surface without taking up anymore space on your roof.

The new 300 Watt, 60 cell solar panels that are used in Hyper X 2 solar systems offers a better PTC to STC ratio "Real World" performance according to the California Energy Commission's performance rating listings than over 119 of SunPower's solar panel models.

And they offer a very high 94.3% PTC to STC performance ratio. They also offer a heat resistant -0.28%/degree C temperature coefficient for better performance in warm/hot climates. And a minus 60 degree C extreme cold temperature rating. And when it comes to aesthetics, nothing even comes close to Hyper X 2's panel's glass on glass, see through, frameless construction.

With N-type mono-crystalline bifacial cells for double sided power production, up to a 22.% efficiency rating, superior aesthetics, and a price that outcompetes the solar lease and PPA company's offerings, very few products on the market compares to Hyper X 2 Solar.
