Vote for our Annapolis Solar Project as 2018 Solar Builder Project of the Year

Solar Flex Rack nominated our Annapolis project for Solar Builder’s Project of the Year.  The voting closes on Thursday Sept. 27.

Our project has two advantages: 1)  it's a great project and, 2)  it begins with “A” so it appears first on the list of the 10 nominated projects.

Five Reasons to VOTE for Annapolis Solar Energy Park:

Buyer Aggregation – Additional Path for Renewable Energy Purchasers

Origination Thought Leadership by Caroline Mead

Caroline Mead, Associate Director of Origination

Corporate energy buyers have firmly solidified themselves as a major driver for the renewable energy industry ensuing year after year of announced deals with consistent growth.  Combining both distributed onsite generation and offsite, utility-scale projects, it is estimated that corporations have secured greater than 11 gigawatts of renewable energy with no end in sight. Technology giants such as Google and Apple have both announced their operations are 100% powered by renewable energy and Facebook announced in August its commitment to source from renewable energy to support its total global power needs by 2020.  These corporate behemoths have big sustainability goals, big energy supply needs and big balance sheets. However, many corporate purchasers fall within a wide and varied spectrum of these same drivers creating a ripe opportunity for corporates to aggregate their purchasing power for renewable energy and opening the market up for a more diverse set of buyers.

Matthew Stapleton - Late Night Welder Bite

When I get home for the day, one thing that I enjoy doing is metal work. Cutting, grinding, welding, or shaping, I like to do it all. I always make sure I am wearing long pants and boots, glasses, and hearing protection before I start working. Well one night this summer I had gotten home a little later then normal and knew I had a few hours of work left to do in my shop before bed so out to the shop I went. In my sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt. As I was cutting some angle iron with the cut off wheel, I noticed the sparks seemed to be a little more painful then normal. Not thinking anything about why that could be I just re-positioned myself to avoid the sparks hitting me. So by the time I finally had got all of the pieces cut to length it was later then I had expected so I was starting to hurry. I get the welder set up and the pieces laid out to start tacking them together, put my welder helmet on and away I went. By the time all of the welding was done it was quite late so I just closed up shop and went to bed. The next morning waking up and getting out of bed was not so fun. I had some pretty good "sun burn" from the welding light. Not only was there perfect red lines where my sleeves and shorts ended on my legs and arms, the tops of my feet had small burns from welder spatter. Looking back I now realize that I should have self triggered and stopped myself as soon as I realized the cutting sparks were hotter than normal. I would have probably noticed I rushed out of the house so fast I forgot to put the proper clothing on to protect myself. Definitely could have been worse if the burns were so severe that blistering happened or a trip to the ER from a cut or smashed toe.

Tyler Bramble - Blade strike during rotor lift

It was a misty early morning a few years ago. We had gotten on site at 2 AM to hopefully take advantage of possible low winds. Everyone had been working a lot lately trying to take care of multiple picks in a small window so fatigue was definitely a factor. We gathered around at the base of the crane with our coffee in hand for the pre-lift meeting. There was some frustration already brewing due to the fact that multiple tag liners never showed up.  This was going to leave us with fewer available hands than we would have liked. Near the conclusion of the meeting, the crane operator noticed that his rigger was in the truck and not involved in the meeting. He would end up being the one to call the crane from the ground. The crane operator was quite irritated about his employee not getting to the meeting in time. With that said, nobody thought much of it due to the fact that winds had risen above the limits of the crane. We all had retired to our trucks to escape the misty rain. We didn't bother to verify that our tagline set ups were correct because this would have been the fourth pick in the last couple days, and who wanted to stand in the rain when they didn't need to! Complacency at this point had begun to set in. Our eyes and mind were not on task at this point. We knew that once this pick was finished, we could enjoy the holiday. Everyone was quietly awaiting the crane operator to call the job so we could go back home and get some rest. All of a sudden like a firehouse alarm, the crane operator alerts the team to get ready immediately. That instant everyone bailed out of their vehicles and rushed to their positions. I looked at the tagline anchor point and set the rope, but something felt wrong. I didn't have time to figure out what it was everything was moving too fast. Almost immediately the crane engines roar and the rotor begins to lift off of the ground. Right from the start is when the issues come into play. The crane caller commands start to come through the radio, and we are not sure who he is talking to. With tension on the lines and being shorthanded there was no way to correct him at such a critical point in the pick. This was where we realized how much he had missed in the pre-lift meeting. He was calling commands to people on the ground that were actually up tower.  Not to mention calling specific names was never the plan, it was to go by the blade.  Regardless at this point things were going "ok".  The tag liner paired with me was a little bit smaller so I let them anchor from the truck and hitch while I controlled direction. I lost traction once in the wet grass on a hill while pulling the tagline, but was able to recover. A this point winds were beginning to rise again while the rotor was half way up. The crane operator then started to lift the rotor slightly faster to account for the rising winds. It wasn't enough to visibly notice but enough to tension the lines more quickly. The up tower caller began calling for my tagline to pull. As we start to pull I hear my partner behind me yell "Oh no!" Not a second later my legs are taken out from under me and I'm sliding down the wet grassy hill. There's nothing I can do to recover until either I stop or the blade stops. Unfortunately I stopped and immediately heard the trailing edge of the blade smack the nacelle. I hop to my feet and the ground crane caller makes his way to our tag line to help. He gets there and grabs the line. I tell the other technician to help while I reset the anchor. I run the rope through and it hits me! The hitch wasn't set up properly allowing for the rope to slip out. It needed to be placed upside down to avoid the rope slipping out. At this point I'm frustrated to no end with myself and the situation as a whole. We successfully stab the rotor, but the damage has already been done. When the blade struck the nacelle it damaged the trailing edge.  Looking back now it could have gone much worse in so many ways. The guys in the nacelle could have been struck by the blade and been severely injured, the blade could have gone the other way and struck the crane causing it to tip, or the two of us on the tagline could have been injured in the collision between the two of us.

Henry Avila - ATV Beach Ride

In 2002, we decided to meet up with my girlfriend's parents a for a week of camping on the beach in Florence, Oregon. We hit the road early for 10+ hour drive from Northern California. We arrived some time around 4pm and set up the Camp trailer. As soon as that was done, Doug asked me if I wanted to take a ride on the beach on the ATV. I was bit tired, but I had never been on one, so that alone got me willing to go. I thought, how hard can it be, I have experience operating various pieces of equipment I told myself. After a quick introduction of ATV, throttle, brake, lets go!

In the beginning I'm just following along, but almost instantly realize this thing gets sideways pretty easy on the sand, lets tear it up becomes my next thought. Following Doug has become boring now, so I start tearing it up off to the side, Doug is just maintaining his ride and starting to pull further away from me. I decide I better catch up and punch it, while still sliding around at every opportunity.

As I'm hauling butt to catch up, I come across a huge pit in the sand about 25' deep. WTF, I was not expecting that. No time to react and now I'm air borne with no clue what to do, so I hang on for dear life. I stick the landing like an Olympic gymnast and stay on the ATV. My upper torso does go over the handle bars, bending them in the process and my head bounces off the plastic front fenders.

I crawl out quickly and run my hand over my face to make sure I'm not bleeding or lost some teeth. The adrenaline has kicked in, but I realize something is not right, my  right shoulder is burning and vision is fuzzy.

I manage to whistle loud enough to get Doug turned around, I tell him I can't make out the beach horizon and that I can only make out that he wearing a red sweatshirt, he is a blur to me as well.

That's the last thing I remember on the beach. I wake up in the ER with a sling on my right shoulder, ball joint busted into lots of little pieces. I'm freezing on the ride back to the campsite as well because they cut off all my shirts in the process. Vacation over in less than 24 hrs, have to get home and see a bunch of doctors.

I think about that day quite a bit since my range of motion is reduced to about 80% and affects how I have to do things to compensate for the limited range.

Could it have been worse? Yes. more extensive injuries, Dead or paralyzed.

I was fatigued from the drive.
I was complacent thinking there was nothing to know before getting on an ATV or understanding the beach terrain itself.
I was rushing when I decided to go do my on thing on the ATV and not stick riding along with Doug.

Joseph Traxler - Dirty cars are unsafe

I was cruising down a county road on a February afternoon. It had snowed hard 36 hours earlier but it was a relatively warm day and most of the snow had melted or turned to slush on the roadway. So I'm cruising along and find myself fast approaching a vehicle that is not moving very fast. So I am rushing. In my complacency and without giving it much thought, I speed up to 65 MPH to overtake the slow-poke. Just as my front bumper is equal with the other cars's rear bumper, the car starts turning left into their driveway. I have now put myself in the line of fire. All I can do is go left as well towards the ditch. I managed to "thread the needle" by missing the car's front bumper by inches and their mailbox by inches. Off the highway and driveway I fly. My car is airborne. Luckily the ditch has 3 feet of snow to absorb the impact and my car slides harmlessly to a stop. I am able to walk away unharmed and my car undamaged. The other driver is also unhurt. They claim they had their turn signal on. Upon closer examination of the vehicle, I find the back of the car is so dirty, the tail lights can't be seen when illuminated. This situation could have been worse. I could have made contact with the car, causing my car to roll. I likely would have been seriously injured if not killed since I did not have my seat belt on. Since then I have not assumed the slow vehicle ahead of me is just going slow just because.

Identification and Authentication: The Importance of Passwords

by Kevin Brown, Information Security Analyst

Who are you? Can you prove it? These are the simple questions we are all faced with on a daily basis in this digital world that we reside in. Seems simple, but there is a problem? The average person has 90 online accounts. That’s 90 different logins and passwords to remember even apart from the ones they have at work!

Read more...

Password overload is real and because of it we may have inadvertently turned a very important aspect of cybersecurity hygiene into a security liability. How? Inferior passwords make answering the prove it part of the equation too easy for criminals, while making them too complex means you’re more likely to store them insecurely or use the same one for everything.

What’s at stake?

A weak password may seem like a minor issue when it comes to accounts that contain little or no sensitive, personal information, but if you’re reusing the same weak password across multiple accounts (a very common poor security practice), cracking one of those less-important accounts opens the gates to your entire digital life. At home that could be your bank accounts, online retailers, personal emails, or social media accounts.

At work that compromised password gives attackers access to anything you have access to: SharePoint, OneDrive, your Inbox, your contacts, and even the entire company directory. This is invaluable information to the bad guys, mainly for social engineering purposes, because they usually have to guess that information. They can use that data – names, titles, phone numbers, vendor lists, project names, etc. – to target specific employees and attempt fraud against them by using familiar terms as a means to disarm them.

The way it should be done

Bad password habits are behavior patterns that can be fixed with a few adjustments.

Follow the company password policy. Our policies do not adhere to most stringent industry standard recommendations, but the password processes we have in place are for the benefit of everyone within our organization. This policy has guidelines for both user and administrative account password structure, aging, and storage.

Don’t reuse passwords. Most people realize it’s a bad idea to use the same password across multiple accounts, yet some continue to do it anyway. Mostly because it’s the easy choice and we are prone to take the path of least resistance. This choice however can start a chain reaction that leads to the victim’s entire online life being compromised.

Use passphrases. We have to simplify the password creation process. Too much complexity fosters frustration, which in turn promotes laziness and tempts poor security behavior. Passphrases are the way to go, whether that be a song lyric, a poem stanza, or a quote. Here is a method you can try:

WELCOME TO THE HOTEL CALIFORNIA SUCH A LOVELY PLACE

  • Choose the first character of each word:
    • WTTHCSALP
  • Using the organization standard as a guide, add required complexity:
    • W2thc$a!p (9 characters, 1 numeral, 2 symbols, mixed case - satisfies all requirements
  • Or be more creative, the key is to make it easy to remember but hard to guess.

Avoid commonly used passwords. Attackers have tools that can quickly guess poor or weak passwords, but they can also use those same tools to figure out if you are using a vast and growing list of commonly used cracked passwords. The following passwords, or any variations thereof, are just a few that should be avoided at all costs.

Screen new passwords for weaknesses. There are some passwords that should be ignored right away. If they can be found in a dictionary, including foreign languages, slang dialects and jargon; if they contain personal information such as birth dates, addresses, and names of family members, pets, or local sports teams; or if they contain work-related information such as building names, sites, or company names. A great way to find out whether a password you want to use is sufficiently secure is to visit either of the following sites:

Use a password management solution. You have a lot of passwords to remember, so how can you possibly recall them all? The wrong way is to write them down and keep them anywhere near your desk or save them in plain text documents on your computer. The best option is to use a password manager, you won't need to remember a unique, long, complex password for every online account. Instead, the password manager will remember each password for you, strengthening your security and minimizing your risk. The only password you'll need to remember is the single "master" password to the password manager itself. Some good options are – LastPass, Keeper, 1Password, KeePass, and Dashlane. This article gives an thorough overview. https://www.consumerreports.org/digital-security/everything-you-need-to-know-about-password-managers/

 Use multi-factor authentication if possible. Essentially, multi-factor authentication involves two distinct steps to verify a user’s identity; typically some combination of the following:

  • Something you know (e.g., your password or your username)
  • Something you have (e.g., your ATM card, mobile phone, or an access token/badge)
  • Something you are (typically verified with biometrics, such as iris scans, fingerprints, or facial recognition)

While it may be easy for an attacker to crack your password, replicating your fingerprint or obtaining your physical property can be a much harder feat. Some consider multi-factor authentication to be time-consuming, frustrating, and just another unnecessary productivity killer. The security benefits however are immeasurable.

The final word

Creating completely uncrackable passwords is impossible, but using these tips and suggestions will help ensure your password is harder to crack than the average person's. Sometimes that's all you need.

EDF Renewables University

Sept 20 Presentation by the Resource Assessment Group (RAG)

Last Thursday, Cory Jog, Manager, Innovation & Competitive Analysis presented Practical Innovation: How RAG Mitigates the Innovator's Dilemma as part of the EDF Renewables University Summer Innovation series.

There exist multiple innovator's dilemmas and the Resource Assessment Group (RAG) has tried to mitigate these by how they organize themselves. This has led to some success over the past couple of years, including the NODE analysis project presented at the last State of the Company address. It has also helped the group fail quickly in other areas, such as testing various data management and analysis platforms.
