Germany-Greece in Talks Over Massive $29 billion Solar Project

Here is the article from Renewable Energy World

The project aims to reach 10 GW of capacity, which would rival it with the 10.2 GW produced by Public Power Corporation, Greece's main electricity company.

Germany-Greece $29 billion dollar project should benefit many solar firms, of course. Ontario R&D based ARISE Technologies (TSX:APV, also trades on Frankfurt Exchange), with the actual manufacturing plants in Germany, may be in an excellent position to benefit from the Germany-Greece project.

The Company has three divisions: Photovoltaic (PV) Cell, PV Silicon and PV Systems. The PV Cell Division manufactures PV cells. The PV Silicon Division is using a method to produce silicon at 7N+ high-purity (99.99999 % purity) for PV cell applications, based on a chemical vapor deposition process. The PV Systems Division provides PV solutions for solar farms and rooftop installations. The PV Cell division is developing a high-efficiency (20%+) thin-film on silicon wafer heterojunction PV solar cell based on its process technology. ARISE owns a United States manufacturing process patent (DC saddle-field deposition) related to depositing thin-films on substrates.

New TTC's subway trains on the Yonge-University-Spadina Subway

Had a chance today to ride the new TTC Rocket from Dundas to Bloor station.
The cars are clean, more spacious, but I think it's because of less seats. Bright inside, clear warning announcements, although I've found door chimes a bit too loud. Passengers can move between cars freely (see the pics).

The TTC electronic info map inside cars did not work. It should show where the train is, i.e. which station. Also, the audio announcements, what station is next did not work either. However, the train is quieter, and the ride is smoother.
