I'm working at a coal-fired electric plant. We're making some upgrades to increase productivity. When we're done, P.S.N.H. will produce 14% more power. The cost for just the turbine upgrade is over 40 million dollars. I don't even know the total. I heard that the cost will be realized in increased output in 3 years!! The best part is that every kilowatt made from anything other than oil is a good kilowatt.
Spring finally seems to have come to New Hampshire! We hit 70 today for the first time in 2008. I sure hope we see that more often now. I for one am SICK of winter!! Well, I guess I'll close this post for now and go visit my list of blogger friends. Til next time, SEE YA!!
