Washington blackout highlighted aging electrical grid

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 06:36
By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The fact that a severed transmission line in Maryland could cut power to much of the nation's capital became the latest warning sign that the country's aging electrical grid can't meet modern demands. Tuesday's widespread power outage came just weeks before the Department of Energy (DOE)is expected to release recommendations for modernizing the country’s electricity infrastructure. The department recently spearheaded a 15-month review that examined the country’s energy transmission, storage, and distribution infrastructure. The U.S. electrical grid, designed to serve far fewer people than it does today, faces a range of challenges that were unanticipated when it was built, including threats of cyber attacks, a need to incorporate power from renewable energy sources and the likelihood of more frequent and severe storms as a result of climate change.

Real estate scion Durst pleads not guilty to Louisiana gun charges

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 06:07

Real estate heir Robert Durst appears in a New York criminal courtroomBy Jonathan Kaminsky NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Real estate scion Robert Durst pleaded not guilty on Thursday in Louisiana state court to firearms charges, as prospects for his swift extradition to California to face a murder charge appeared increasingly remote. Prosecutors in California have been seeking Durst's return to Los Angeles County, where he stands accused of the 2000 slaying of a longtime friend, Susan Berman, in a case recently chronicled in the HBO documentary series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst." The final episode of the series aired one day after his March 14 arrest at a New Orleans hotel, where authorities said he was staying under an assumed name with $42,000 in cash, a revolver, a stash of marijuana and a latex mask. A grand jury in New Orleans indicted Durst on Wednesday on charges of possessing a weapon as a felon and carrying a firearm with a controlled substance. "I feel like we're being tag-teamed, and I feel like we need to be in California where the main case is so we can try the case," Dick DeGuerin, an attorney for Durst, told reporters.


Utility won't appeal $1.6 billion penalty for deadly blast

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 06:04

FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2010, file photo, a massive fire following a pipeline explosion roars through a mostly residential neighborhood in San Bruno, Calif. Repeated natural-gas accidents including a pipeline explosion that killed eight people suggest that Pacific Gas & Electric Co., California’s largest power utility, may be too big to operate safely, the state’s top utility regulator says. California Public Utilities Commission President Michael Picker said he would ask the commission’s staff to study “the culture of safety” and the structure of the utility, which he noted currently has its gas and electricity operations under a single board and CEO. PG&E is one of the country’s largest power utilities with 9.7 million gas and electric customers. The Associated Press obtained Picker’s prepared statement ahead of a commission meeting Thursday, April 9, 2015, where the panel is expected to vote on a record $1.6 billion penalty for the 2010 PG&E gas pipeline explosion in a San Francisco suburb. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California regulators approved a record $1.6 billion penalty Thursday against PG&E for a 2010 gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people and destroyed more than three dozen homes in suburban San Francisco.
