Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A U.S. solar power initiative enacted by former President Barack Obama reached a goal for cost competitiveness three years early, the government said.The U.S. Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory said in a report that the cost to install solar power during the first quarter of the year reached a record low because of higher efficiencies, lower labor costs and the decline in the price for photovoltaic components.For utility-scale projects, those supplying energy to the nation's grid, the costs are down about 30 percent when compared with first quarter 2016."These results suggest that the DOE's SunShot Initiative, which was launched in 2011 to make solar cost-competitive with other forms of energy, has met its 2020 cost target for utility-scale solar sys...

Tuesday, August 1, 2017It was Peter Crouch with another zinger.The 36-year-old Stoke striker, who has 103 Premier League goals to his name, was asked by @DavidMaguire3 on Twitter when he would break Alan Shearer's Premier League record of 260 goals.This was his response.As durable as Crouchy has proven, though, it is doubtful he will carry on scoring until he's in his 60s.But could another of the Premier League's current forwards eclipse Shearer's total one day?We've looked at three of the most prolific modern day attackers to see how long it will take them to break the record if they carry on scoring at their current rate.Sergio Aguero has scored 122 Premier League goals in his six seasons – keep that up, and the 29-year-old would be 36 by the time he breaks Shearer's record.Romelu Lukaku
