RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy (NYSE :D ) today announced that it has made an offer to Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE :DM ) to acquire all outstanding common units not owned by Dominion Energy in exchange for Dominion Energy common shares. The fixed exchange ratio offer of 0.2468 Dominion Energy common shares per Dominion Energy Midstream common unit equates to a per-unit valuation of $17.75, based on closing prices as of Sept. 18, 2018. This represents an 8.2 percent premium to the 30-day volume-weighted average unit price.  The transaction is expected to be approximately neutral to Dominion Energy's earnings guidance and credit profile.

It is anticipated that a definitive agreement may be reached in the fourth quarter of 2018, with the transaction closing in the first quarter of 2019.

Thomas F. Farrell, II, Dominion Energy chairman, president and chief executive officer, said:

"Continued weakness in MLP capital markets combined with the prolonged disruption in Dominion Energy Midstream's (DM) common unit price since the March 15 Federal Energy Regulatory Commission policy revision were key factors that led to this decision. Fortunately, Dominion Energy has already successfully completed several steps that will allow us to achieve our earnings and credit objectives despite these challenges. The proposed transaction would provide a premium to recent market trading levels for DM common unit holders and also benefit Dominion Energy shareholders by removing uncertainty as to the future of DM and the potentially negative impact of changes in FERC tax policy to the future cash flows of current DM assets."

If Dominion Energy acquires all of Dominion Energy Midstream's outstanding public common units, Dominion Energy Midstream's Series A Preferred Units are expected to be converted into common units pursuant to Dominion Energy Midstream's partnership agreement and receive the same per-unit consideration as the outstanding public common units at the closing of the transaction.

Dominion Energy's offer is non-binding and has been approved by the board of directors of Dominion Energy. Before Dominion Energy would be in a position to enter into any definitive agreement with Dominion Energy Midstream to effect a proposed transaction, such agreement would need to be reviewed and approved by the boards of directors of Dominion Energy, Inc., and Dominion Energy Midstream GP, LLC. The completion of the proposed transaction will be subject to customary closing conditions, including standard regulatory notifications and approvals.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- With a goal of making the solar workforce and solar communities more diverse, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Community Development Action Coalition (HBCU-CDAC) have begun a new effort to increase recruitment of African-American students into the industry.

SEIA and the HBCU-CDAC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to begin a comprehensive effort to help the solar industry recruit and employ more students from the nation's 101 Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This will include hosting a national jobs fair, individual jobs fairs at the HBCU schools and bringing solar companies to campuses for recruitment.

"Diversity and inclusion is one of our highest priorities and, while we've made progress, we still have a long way to go to make the solar industry more accurately reflect the diversity of the communities we serve," said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA's president and CEO. "Those of us in solar joined this industry because we want to make the world better for all, which is why we're excited to partner with CDAC, tap into the talent at HBCUs, and bring more of these students into our growing industry."

As an outcome of the partnership, SEIA and CDAC will work with participating HBCUs to create a database of students pursuing clean energy degrees, or those interested in working in solar, that will be accessible by SEIA companies.  Both organizations will work with campus representatives to foster resume exchanges and coordinate interviews among participating companies.

"As a national community economic development intermediary offering programs and activities that target HBCUs and their host communities, we are delighted to partner with SEIA in exposing HBCU students as well as their faculty and staff to opportunities in solar and clean energy," said Ron Butler, CDAC's CEO. "With an ultimate goal of community empowerment and economic relevancy, we see diversity and inclusion in this growing industry from all aspects including workforce and enterprise development."

CDAC's COO Henry Golatt commented that "clean energy both now and in the foreseeable future is integral to our national economy and security. CDAC's goal in this regard is to ensure HBCUs are not only at the table but adequately engaged."

The new recruitment effort is one of SEIA's many efforts to foster diversity and inclusion. This includes a best practices guide for promoting diversity in the solar workforce, as well as its Women's Empowerment Initiative, which provides networking, training and other development opportunities. In November, SEIA is hosting its latest summit, in Chicago, to discuss how to increase women's leadership in the industry.

In addition, Hopper recently joined a group of 450 chief executives committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace, signing the pledge for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion. The pledge contains three commitments: making the organization's workplace a trusting place to have complex conversations around diversity and inclusion, implementing unconscious bias education, and sharing best practices and challenges with others.

SEIA's work on diversity will continue at the industry's biggest event of the year, Solar Power International (Sept. 24-26). There, the organization is convening 10 separate workshops to encourage diversity, including conversations to bring more capital into underserved communities, how to make solar more accessible to low-income and low-credit Americans, along with sessions focusing on community outreach, multiple women's networking events and a job fair.

DUBLIN, Sept 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Global Markets and Advanced Technologies for Paints and Coatings" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The report has been prepared in a simple format that can be easily understood with a number of tables and charts/figures. The scope of the report includes a detailed study of global and regional markets for various types of coatings with the reasons given for variations in the growth of the industry in certain regions. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers' total revenues. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

There is a major shift in the production of global paints and coatings, which is moving away from the developed regions, such as Europe and the U.S., to the developing economies, such as China and India. Continued increasing demand from the developed countries in addition to the demand from the developing countries is contributing to the overall expansion of the worldwide coatings market.

Industrial growth in developing economies is a major driver for growth in the coatings industry. In most regions of the world, the coatings industry is mature and the growth of the coatings industry is dependent on a number of factors, including the level of economic activity and the state of the construction industry, which remains a major consumer of paints and coatings.

The market for paints and coatings has been on the increase in various applications and this has boosted the total market in various regions. Additionally, the market for solvent-borne paints and coatings is not going down as it was anticipated and this has added to the increase in the total market value of paints and coatings.

The following summary table and figure illustrate the global market for various technologies involved in the manufacture of paints and coatings. Growth is the highest in the powder coating and emerging technologies segment, as new technologies are being developed by major manufacturers, with an ever-increasing pressure from regulatory authorities in regard to pollution control and other environmental factors.

Powder coating technology is being adapted in a big way in all fields of application. The market for coatings manufactured with solvent-borne technologies is slowly diminishing and being taken over by coatings based on waterborne technologies, basically because of their environmentally friendly properties. This transition away from solvent-borne coatings is occurring in the North American and European markets, whereas solvent-borne coatings are still being widely used in developing countries because of cost factors. High-solids and radiation-cured technologies are experiencing reasonably good growth as these technologies are considered to be less polluting than solvent-borne technology. Market forecasts for solvent-borne coatings have been reduced somewhat from those in the prior version of this report, based on these ongoing changes in the market.

Since the program’s inception, the down payment assistance and homebuyer education initiative has helped more than 18,000 families achieve homeownership.
  • Financial Capability – with more than $21 million in funding in the last year, financial counseling and coaching for underserved communities, families and struggling small business owners has put more people on a pathway to financial stability. Our most recent $3.5 million commitment helps participants set long-term goals and provides a local expert to coach them towards success.

Beginning in 2019, Wells Fargo will invest two percent of its after-tax profits for philanthropy.

ROCKVILLE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Standard Solar, Inc., a leading solar energy company specializing in the development and financing of solar electric systems nationwide, is building 38 megawatts (MW) of community distributed generation (or community solar) projects in New York through the acquisition of six projects from US Light Energy (formerly Solitude Solar), a community solar development company.

The community solar projects will be constructed on land parcels totaling approximately 180 acres and will provide subscribers with the benefits of solar energy without the cost of equipment, installation and maintenance, directly contributing to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mandate to achieve 50% of the state’s electricity from renewable energy by 2030.

The six project sites, including one re-purposed landfill, are in the towns of Hunter, Clifton Park, Turin, Croghan and Denmark. They are located in two different utility territories across three different NYISO Load Zones. The power generated by the arrays will provide cost-saving solar electricity to both residential and small commercial subscribers.

Overall, the solar farms will consist of approximately 111,765 solar panels, annually generating approximately 46,725,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity. This output is sufficient to power 3,775 typical American homes for a year. The projects also offset the production of about 76,600,000 pounds of carbon dioxide annually, equal to the carbon sequestered annually by a 40,958-acre U.S. forest.

“New York has one of the most active community solar markets in the country, significantly boosted by the NY-Sun Initiative, Gov. Cuomo’s $1 billion initiative to advance the acceleration of solar in the state,” explained Scott Wiater, President & CEO, Standard Solar. “We are proud to have the unique ability to finance and construct impactful community solar projects that will bring the benefits of clean, renewable energy to even more residents in the state.”

“We are excited and grateful to be working with Standard Solar on the first of these community solar projects here in our home state of New York,” said Mark Richardson, President and CEO of US Light Energy. “Standard Solar’s financial strength, proven construction capabilities, and their position in the marketplace make them a perfect fit for us. We could not have asked for a better partner to work with on this community solar project portfolio.”

A recent report from Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables and Vote Solar, says that 50 to 75 percent of U.S. consumers don’t have access to conventional rooftop installations. “This is what makes community solar such a great solution—anyone located in the area around one of the six projects can subscribe to the clean energy produced by the panels and get credits on their regular utility bill,” continued Wiater. “Customers don’t need to worry about installing panels on their property and all crediting is done virtually through their utility company, including a pay-as-you-go option. Unlike typical energy sources, a solar farm offers local, clean energy that offsets a customer’s electric bill with predictable rates and terms.”

With access to $500 million in low-cost project capital available from international energy giant Énergir, Standard Solar’s parent company, Standard Solar can easily remove financing barriers from projects allowing the project, and the savings that come with it to flourish.
