ID Farmers Net Metering Proposal Could Cloud Solar / Public News Service

October 13, 2020

BOISE, Idaho — Some farmers fear a rate case before Idaho commissioners will throw shade on future solar projects. The state Public Utilities Commission will consider changes for farmers to its net-metering program, which credits producers for excess energy sent back to the grid.

The proposal could mean a lower net-metering credit rate. Russell Schiermeier is a farmer in Bruneau, located in the high desert of southwest Idaho. He has high energy costs and installed solar two years ago. Under Idaho Power’s proposed change, he would be grandfathered in under the current rates, but only for 10 years rather than 25 like residential customers.

“It seems to make a lot of sense to kind of keep everybody on the same playing field, because a solar panel on my house is not

Best cloud storage services: From Google Drive to Dropbox, the top options for business

These days, when so many of us are working from home, having reliable cloud storage is more important than ever. 

It all started in 2007, when Drew Houston, Dropbox’s CEO, got sick and tired of losing his USB drive. So, he created the first personal and small business cloud storage service. It was a radical idea in its time, and everyone loved it. Today, there are dozens of cheap or free cloud storage services. But — beyond giving you storage — they’re very different.  

How do you choose which one is right for you? You could just pick by how much free storage space you get. That’s simple, but it’s only part of the story. The real value from a cloud storage service comes from how well it works for you or your business. As you’ll see, some work much better with some operating systems and business plans than others.

IBM plans to split off lagging legacy tech business as focus shifts to cloud.

IBM is splitting itself in two, spinning off its legacy technology services business to focus on cloud computing and artificial intelligence, a move that reflects how decisively computing has shifted to the cloud.

The split is IBM’s effort to grab more of that fast-growing business and thrive amid the market leaders, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and Google.

The business retaining the IBM name will include its cloud operations, along with its hardware, software and consulting services units. They represent about three quarters of the current company’s revenue.

The business to be spun off, in a company that has not yet named, is IBM’s basic technology services business, which maintains, supports and upgrades the computing operations of thousands of corporate customers.

That business is sizable, with sales of about $19 billion a year, but it’s not where the growth opportunities lie in the technology business.

The split comes as
