Solar Project

The solar system is up and running

  

The project began on April 5th and was completed on April 11, 2018. It consists of twenty (20) solar panels and should produce enough electricity to cover the estimated annual usage for the building. We were also able to get a waiver to get the full net metering which means we will get full credit for any over production sent back to the grid. If you check on the Home Page of the Town’s web site you will find pictures of the project in progress. You may also click on a link provided to view the daily production and usage (https://monitoringpublic.solaredge.com/solaredge-web/p/site/public?name=Town%20of%20Porter#/dashboard ) . We have been very pleased with Patrick Crosscup of Sun Version, LLC and the work he has done. We hope to have a monitor in the new building to show the daily production and consumption of electricity in the building.

Spectrum Cable Updates

  

March 28, 2018

Dear Municipal Official:

I am providing you with this notification as part of our ongoing efforts to keep you apprised of developments affecting Charter Communications subscribers in your community.

ION Television has notified Charter Communications of their purchase of WPME My Network and WPXT CW stations. As a result, the following changes will be made.

Effective March 29, 2018: My Network SD/HD will move from WPME to WPXT DT3*, Customers will continue to receive My Net on the same channels.

*In the event that Guide data does not match, a slate will be put up on My Net until guide vendors can update information

There will be a slate on MyNetwork in the Littleton lineup as WPXT will no longer be available.

LAFF TV will move to WPXT DT5; a slate will run on LAFF TV as the change takes place.

Replace ION satellite feed with new WIPL. Customers receiving ION satellite feed will not see any major difference between the national and the local feed.

For a complete lineup, visit spectrum.com/channels.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Shelley Winchenbach
