‘Save Colstrip’ bill will cost Montana consumers, PSC staff warns

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Billings Gazette:The Republicans’ play to bail out Colstrip will cost each NorthWestern Energy customer at least $721 and may not work, according to Montana Public Service Commission analysts. Analysts for the state’s commission of elected utility regulators laid out the costs Monday and recommended the PSC oppose the latest bill on Colstrip.At issue is Senate Bill 331, a bill by Billings Republican Sen. Tom Richmond that assures that if Colstrip closes early customers keep paying NorthWestern $407 million for the utility’s 2008 purchase of Colstrip Unit 4. Early closure is seeming more likely as the power plant’s other utility owners arrange to be financially ready to shutter Colstrip by 2027. The bill, which has NorthWestern’s backing, is being promoted by the Senate Republican caucus.“In the event that Colstrip Unit 4 were retired in 2027, the asset’s un-depreciated and remediation costs total $276 million. That amount would equate to a liability of approximately $721 per customer, based on the current number of NorthWestern customers,” analysts reported.That $721 cost per consumer could increase as other costs, such as environmental cleanup, are folded in the equation, according to staff.Analysts described the bill as a guarantee that NorthWestern would be paid back, not as legislation that would protect Colstrip from early closure. The risk associated with the power plant closing early would shift entirely to NorthWestern’s customers, staff said.The commission declined the advice and voted 3 to 1 to support SB 331, which was scheduled for a Tuesday hearing. Bozeman’s Roger Koopman, the only no vote, warned the commission wouldn’t be able to balance the interests of customers and NorthWestern if SB 331 passed.More: ‘Save Colstrip’ bill could cost each NorthWestern customer at least $721 ‘Save Colstrip’ bill will cost Montana consumers, PSC staff warnslast_img read more

Syracuse cruises to 16-5 win over Marist using 7-goal run in 1st half

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 21, 2016 at 11:01 pm Contact Tomer: | @tomer_langer Kayla Treanor was set in the draw circle. Riley Donahue had just scored off a free position shot, an area she struggled in last Sunday night against Binghamton, and the game was getting ready to restart.Treanor flicked the ball up to herself and won control. Instead of bringing her stick back down, she looked up and fired a lofty 35-yard pass to Halle Majorana, who had gotten behind the defense. Syracuse scored a goal and took a 5-0 lead just seven seconds after winning control of the draw.“We don’t really work on that,” Treanor said. “Halle just does a really great job of pushing it up field and does a good job of getting open long.”No. 3 Syracuse (4-0) stormed out of the gate, scoring seven goals in the opening nine minutes of the game, which included a 2:56 stretch in which the Orange scored four times to build up that 7-0 lead. That dominating sequence set the tone for the Orange in what ended up being a 16-5 blowout victory over Marist (1-1) on Sunday night in the Carrier Dome.Marist won the first draw control of the game, but promptly turned the ball over. Taylor Gait got possession of the ball near the net and fired it toward goal. The ball ricocheted off the post and back towards the center of the 8-meter arc. Treanor recovered it and among a group of red jerseys, calmly shot the ball and scored, giving SU a 1-0 lead 13 seconds into the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn SU’s game at noon, Wagner head coach Katie Rowan called a timeout that spurred her team to score two goals at the end of the first half. But when Marist head coach Jessica O’Brien called timeout after Majorana scored Syracuse’s fifth goal, the Red Foxes couldn’t find the same stability. The Orange scored two goals in the 1:49 after the timeout was called, capping off the 7-0 blitz that effectively ended the game less than a sixth of the way in.“The first half today we really went after them and played our starting group (which was) a big factor playing almost until the end of the half today,” head coach Gary Gait said. “…they took the timeout and we just continued to press and play hard.”All-Americans Treanor and Majorana were part of that fantastic first half. The two combined for nine points in the opening frame, tallying three goals and six assists between them. Majorana in particular did a good amount of her work operating from behind the goal.“Playing against a zone it opens things up,” Majorana said, “so there are a lot of openings. And I think everyone was on the same page today.”Despite struggling against Marist at the draw circle, SU managed to dominate the first half, going into the break with a 13-1 lead. The 12-goal difference represented the largest margin after the first half this season for Syracuse.After the first half, Gait pulled all his starters out of the game and emptied the bench. Thirty-seven players saw the field, including backup goalie Erin Coleman, who transferred to SU from Marist. Her teammates on the sidelines exploded in cheers whenever she made a save.SU passed its first four early season tests with ease, and punctuated the opening stretch with its blowout of Marist. The Orange knows that it flexed its muscles against some inferior opponents. But after playing four early-season games against inferior opponents, SU will face its next challenge: back-to-back Top 10 opponents.“Great team effort,” Gait said, “and we’re excited to prepare for the next few games.” Commentslast_img read more
