SunUp Solar presents the Summer of Sun, a reminder of all the great activities summer brings like music, food, family & fun. Activities you can greatly increase when your not paying a high and constantly rising  monthly electric utility bill. “Oye Como Va” by Santana “Oye Como Va” is a song written by Latin jazz and mambo musician Tito Puente in 1963 and popularized by Santana’s rendition of the song in 1970 on their album Abraxas, helping to catapult Santana into stardom with the song reaching #13 on the Billboard Top 100. The song also reached #11 on Billboard’s Easy Listening survey and #32 on their R&B chart.[1] It was inspired by Israel “Cachao” Lopez’s “Chanchullo.” The title comes from the first words: Spanish: English: Oye como va Listen to how [it] goes OR Hey, how is it going Mi ritmo “My rhythm” Bueno pa’ gozar “Good for enjoying” or “good to enjoy” Mulata See: Mulatta The fact that the phrase “Oye como va” is the title of the song and is sung somewhat separately from the phrase “mi ritmo” makes it easy to interpret the meaning as “Hey, how’s it going?” However, the first sentence is actually “Oye como va mi ritmo,” meaning “Listen to how my rhythm goes.” Source: Wikipedia   Music of Summer #4 “Future Man, Future Lady” by Ziggy Marley (ft.

First Solar Landfill For New York State

First Solar Landfill For New York State

A 2.3 MW solar array is to be built in West Nyack, this will be the first landfill with a solar plant in the state of New York. Over the course of its lifetime, the clean power plant is expected to save taxpayers about $4 million dollars. (The West Nyack landfill is capped and has been decommissioned.) Re-purposing a landfill is a perfect marriage of unobstructed sunlight and large underdeveloped unused land. Turning a landfill into a solar power plant is a creative investment in the ever declining energy supply in the New York Metro area. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is preparing a white paper to help other municipalities develop their own solar power plants. Clarkstown is one of about 600 cities and towns to sign the United States Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement to reduce CO2 emissions. The 84,000 resident town is located about 34 miles northwest of New York...

If you ever had any questions about how many homes are switching to solar power, or more interestingly how many more are switching to solar from month to month the NY-Sun Initiative championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo has all the data you would need. Solar is growing in the New York Westchester, Rockland & Orange counties at exciting rates. Also under NY-Sun, a total of 316 MWs of solar photovoltaic capacity have been installed or is under development in the past two years, which will result in the avoidance of approximately 116,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.   Solar Photovoltaic (PV) kilowatts (kW) Installed by County and Sector Stacked Bar Chart: Beginning...

Activities you can greatly increase when your not paying a high and constantly rising  monthly electric utility bill. “Don’t Ask Me No Questions” by Lynyrd Skynyrd The song is memorable for its lyrics and simple guitar riff. Lynyrd Skynyrd, depicting themselves as just working-class musicians who liked making music at the time, were anxious in the world of record companies, managers, and agents. The song is a message to the people who did not want anything to do with the band during their early years, but became demanding when the band became successful. It was written by Rossington and Van Zant during a fishing trip. The song failed to reach chart status; however, their later song “Sweet Home Alabama” achieved worldwide recognition Source: Wikipedia   Music of Summer #2 “Good Times Roll” by The Cars Music of Summer #1 “Going Up The Country” by Canned...
