The winning entry was from St. Stephen School in Kingsville, Md., which received the $10,000 top prize to use for a school enrichment project. Overall, $35,000 is being awarded by BGE to area schools as part of the contest. Captain Mercaptan takes his name from "mercaptan," the safety scent that BGE and other gas utilities add to normally odorless natural gas to give it a distinctive, easy-to-detect smell.

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the PV industry, announced this week that its production facility in Penang, Malaysia has officially begun operations.  The production facility, which began construction in March 2015 and received TUV certification in late April, has begun to produce highly-efficient cells and multi-crystalline modules.
