Smart, Dissolving Pacemaker Communicates with Body-Area Sensors

Last summer, Northwestern University researchers introduced the first-ever transient pacemaker — a fully implantable, wireless device that harmlessly dissolves in the body after it's no longer needed. Now, they unveil a new, smart version that is integrated into a coordinated network of soft, flexible, wireless, wearable sensors and control units placed around the upper body.

Electrify America entered into a 15-year virtual power purchase agreement to build a solar photovoltaic renewable energy generation project in California. The new solar project is expected to generate 75 Megawatts at peak solar capacity or an estimated annual production of 225,000 Megawatt hours. It is projected to produce enough 100% renewable energy annually to more than offset the energy currently delivered on an annualized basis to Electrify America's customers charging on its extensive network. The solar project is targeted to be operational by mid-2023.
