Our meeting with the Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners is a chance for the Committee to discuss the structure, timing and operation of the scheme. The purpose of the meeting is to deal with any ambiguity and concerns in regards to the payment of the local property tax and, in some circumstances, to establish how the issue of how premature payments is dealt with and how payments will be made when they are actually due“We will also raise the issue of Revenue’s customer service on the issue – particularly how concerns are not related to the issue of compliancy, but an issue of good customer service, in which people who wish to pay the tax are finding that they are making the payment before its due date.” First Irish death from Coronavirus last_img read more

U.S. solar industry ups 2019 installation forecast to 13.3GW

first_imgU.S. solar industry ups 2019 installation forecast to 13.3GW FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:The U.S. solar energy industry lifted its installation outlook for this year and beyond thanks to robust demand for large-scale projects by utilities buying the clean energy source for its low cost, according to a report published on Tuesday.In 2019, installations are expected to be up 25 percent from 2018 to 13.3 gigawatts, the report from the Solar Energy Industries Association and Wood Mackenzie said. The groups’ previous forecast called for 14 percent growth this year.The rosy outlook marks an about-face from 2018, when installations fell 2 percent after U.S. President Donald Trump slapped 30 percent tariffs on overseas-made solar panels.Since then, global panel prices have fallen dramatically due to an oversupply of panels in top producer China, which cut incentives for installations there. Between the first quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, monocrystalline module prices fell 30 percent, according to the report, effectively canceling out the U.S. tariffs.Looking ahead, the industry lifted its five-year outlook by 5.1 GW, or about 9 percent, mostly due to new procurement by utilities in Florida including NextEra Energy Inc’s FPL and Duke Energy Corp.Florida is expected to be the top state for utility-scale solar over the next six years, the report said, marking a major shift away from the industry’s historical center of power, California.Wood Mackenzie senior analyst Austin Perea said the shift was notable because Florida lacks the strong policy support for renewable energy that exists in California. Utilities in Florida, therefore, are buying solar because it is cheap compared with fossil fuel alternatives like natural gas and coal.More: U.S. solar installation outlook brightens on falling costs: reportlast_img read more

Nandez wins Superclasico for Boca

first_imgRiver Plate 1 Boca Juniors 2: Nandez inflicts painful defeat as two see red Tom Webber Last updated 2 years ago 07:09 11/6/17 NahitanNandez - cropped Twitter (@BocaJrsOficial) Boca Juniors came out on top in the Superclasico on Sunday, beating arch-rivals River Plate 2-1 in a match that included two red cards. Nahitan Nandez inflicted another painful defeat on arch-rivals River Plate as Boca Juniors triumphed 2-1 in an enthralling Superclasico that saw two red cards at El Monumental.Uruguay international Nandez volleyed home the winner with 17 minutes remaining, sending Boca nine points clear at the Superliga summit and adding to River’s misery after they were dumped out of the Copa Libertadores by Lanus’ stunning four-goal comeback in midweek.Edwin Cardona put Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s side ahead before half-time when his majestic free-kick – awarded after a high foot from Nacho Fernandez resulted in the midfielder’s dismissal – found the top-right corner.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Referee Nestor Pitana levelled things up by dismissing Cardona for a perceived elbow on Enzo Perez, but, just four minutes after Leonardo Ponzio equalised with a screamer, Nandez converted Pablo Perez’s cross to silence El Monumental.Cardona saw a thumping effort tipped over by German Lux in the 12th minute, but he beat the River goalkeeper with a phenomenal free-kick into the top-right corner three minutes before half-time after Fernandez was shown red for a high boot which caught the Boca man in the chest.Agustin Rossi denied Ignacio Scocco as the hosts pushed for an equaliser in the second period, but their hopes of a comeback were boosted after the hour mark when Cardona was given his marching orders having appeared to make contact with Enzo Perez’s face.2010 – Edwin Cardona is the first player to score and be sent off in a league #Superclásico since 25/03/2010 (Gary Medel, scored 2). Duality — OptaJavier (@OptaJavier) November 5, 2017 River restored parity eight minutes later, Ponzio beating Rossi with a stunning right-footed strike that flew into the top-left corner to spark scenes of unbridled joy.There was to be a sting in the tail, though. As the hosts pushed for a winner they left themselves exposed at the back, and Nandez made the most of the space to etch his name in history as the winner of the 200th Superclasico in the top flight.last_img read more
