[News Clip: Bedford Booze]

Description: Video footage from the NBC 5/KXAS station in Fort Worth, Texas, to accompany a news story about the passage of a bill for the legal sale of mixed beverages. People are shown voting and women are seen working and drinking at a bar. This story was produced for the 10:00 P.M. news broadcast.

Heating facilities, Blue Mountain Community College, Pendleton, Oregon

Description: Blue Mountain Community College campus consists of five major buildings totalling about 193,000 square feet in area. Four of these buildings are heated using hot water circulating systems, and the fifth by a low pressure steam system. The boilers for each of the systems are natural gas fired. A successful agricultural well was drilled adjacent to the campus, which during a twelve hour test produced 780 gallons per minute of 65/sup 0/F water. It was concluded that heating the campus utilizing a heat pump system is possible using readily available and proven equipment. Annual energy saving in natural gas will amount to 98,400 therms. This is an 82% reduction in the annual usage forecast after implementation of recommendations made as a result of the energy audit. The first year value of the natural gas saved is $49,200. This savings, less operating costs, when applied with escalation consideration over a period of twenty years, indicates that a capital investment of $367,500 can be justified. This assumes the project would be financed with 8% tax-free bonds. A system design was developed, new equipment sized, needed modifications identified, and major items estimated.

Heating Facilities: Klamath County Road Department Shops, Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Description: Maywood Industries is presently utilizing 118/sup 0/F water pumped from a geothermal well about 1500 feet deep. The Klamath County Road complex presently heats about 13,000 square feet of space using electric and natural gas heaters. It is planned to increase the total heated area to nearly 24,000 square feet. This study is based on eliminating the existing electrical and natural gas heaters and heating the entire 24,000 square feet geothermally. It was found to be practical and economically feasible to heat the road department shop complex geothermally. Capital cost is estimated to be $170,000. Annual energy savings for the enlarged facility would be 56,720 KWH of electricity and 36,924 therms of natural gas, with a first year value of $18,175. This savings, less operating costs, when applied with escalation considerations over a period of twenty years, result in a present worth of $382,385 when discounted at 8%. Thus, with 8% bonds financing of this project is economically attractive. (MHR)

LSA feld test annual report, August 1979-August 1980

Description: After almost four years of endurance testing of photovoltaic modules, no fundamental life-limiting mechanisms have been identified that could prevent the twenty-year life goal from being met. The endurance data show a continual decline in the failure rate with each new large-scale procurement. Cracked cells and broken interconnects continue to be the principal causes of failure. Although the modules are more adversely affected physically by hot, humid environments than by cool or dry environments, there are insufficient data to correlate failures with environment. There is little connection between the outward physical condition of a module and changes in its electrical performance. Electrical degradation is a transient condition that is generally intermittent and is present before a module destined to fail finally fails. Analysis of year-long electrical performance data indicates that the fill factor is insensitive to most measurement problems and remains the best diagnostic tool for determining module degradation. Investigations at the JPL site reveal that shadowing the indirect component of irradiance can reduce the electrical output of modules and result in anomalous performance data. Extrapolating this result to arrays suggests that a loss of power can result if indirect shadowing is not considered in the array layout. The introduction of the Portable I-V Data Logger was a success. About 1200 high quality I-V curves were obtained during a tour of the 15 remote sites. Next year a major reorganization in the inventory of test modules is planned. A significant portion of the older modules will be removed and replaced with modules from the upcoming Block IV large-scale procurement.
