FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享DBusiness:DTE Energy in Detroit today announced it is the first company in Michigan to offer green bonds, which were priced Monday. The $525 million in bonds will finance green investments, including low-carbon projects such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. DTE is the fifth [energy] company in the nation to sell green bonds.“Green bonds will help finance our low-carbon investments, which will enable us to continue moving Michigan toward a cleaner, more sustainable energy future,” says Gerry Anderson, chairman and CEO of DTE Energy. “This is a tangible way for investors to demonstrate their commitment to the environment and is one of many steps in our aggressive plan to reduce carbon emissions by more than 80 percent by 2050. We’re proud to be among the first energy companies to offer this green investment option.”The bonds have a maturity of 30 years at an annual fixed coupon of 4.05 percent. They are expected to help fund the development and construction of solar arrays and wind farms, including the transmission infrastructure to support renewable energy facilities, as well as strengthen energy efficiency programs.“A fundamental transformation in the way we produce power in Michigan has already begun,” says Anderson. “As DTE moves toward cleaner energy sources, we are focused on maintaining reliability and keeping energy affordable for our customers.”In related news, last Friday the Michigan Public Service Commission approved DTE Energy’s gas plant proposal for East China Township. The utility is scheduled to break ground on the new facility in 2019. The plant is one of the steps the company is taking to reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent by the early 2020s, and more than 80 percent by 2050.More: DTE Energy Among First In Nation To Offer Green Bonds, Wins Approval For East China Township Natural Gas Plant DTE Energy Issues Green Bonds to Fund Renewable Projects
After a challenging weekend against the University of South Florida and the University of Florida, the No. 11 Women of Troy return home to Marks Stadium Friday in a nonconference match against the No. 1-ranked Cal.The Golden Bears are undefeated on the season, and have moved up to No. 1 in the rankings after winning the ITA National Women’s Team Indoor Championship. The Women of Troy had a commanding 6-1 win over USF with the lone loss due to a retirement from Rianna Valdez. The next day was a different story, with Florida, a team many consider the favorites for the national title, completing a 7-0 sweep against the Trojans.USC will be playing its first match in the newly renovated Marks Stadium, which was dedicated and officially completed on Tuesday. Both the men’s and women’s team received upgraded locker rooms as well as meeting rooms and lounges. For fans, canopies were added across the seating area to provide shade, and new entrances enhance the aesthetics of the stadium.Coach Richard Gallien noted the difference between his team this year and last year at this point.“We got to the top of the nation quickly, but there was always a bulls-eye,” he said. “[This year], we are the hunter.”Cal comes in strong with four players ranked in ITA’s top 125, but USC counters with five. The Golden Bears have the two top-ranked players in the matchup, senior Klara Fabikova and junior Maegan Manasse, ranked an impressive fifth and 13th in the nation, respectively. Freshman Olivia Hauger and junior Denise Starr come in ranked 102nd and 121st, giving the Trojans a challenge across the board for singles. In addition Cal will try to get on the board early with the second-ranked doubles team of Manasse and Starr, which will be a difficult task for the 11th-ranked USC team of senior captain Giuliana Olmos and sophomore Gabby Smith.The Trojans will be up for the challenge, with five players ranked in the top 100 this week. Olmos leads the way for the Women of Troy at No. 38, followed by sophomores Madison Westby at No. 62 and Smith at No. 87. Two freshmen also cracked the rankings: Rianna Valdez and Jessica Failla at 90 and 95. Junior Zoë Katz will likely be the sixth Trojan singles player to complete a solid lineup.“Playing on a team is a new deal [for the younger players] … and although we have the right type of character, there is still some adjustment,” Gallien said.The skill levels of both teams should bring an exciting match for fans between two of the nation’s top teams and the two teams at the top of the Pac-12 standings last season. Last season’s matchup between these two teams resulted in Cal’s only loss in the conference on its way to a 9-1 Pac-12 record, falling short only to the 10-0 Trojans in a thrilling 4-3 USC victory.“We have a motivated and positive group that is focusing on what we can control and trying to get better day by day,” Gallien said.While Friday’s contest is not a conference match, a win would be crucial for the Trojans’ confidence in their quest to repeat as Pac-12 champions for the 11th straight time, and jump back into the top 10 rankings.
