NEW BOOK: David McCormick’s Battle Plan to Renew America

Former CEO, combat veteran and Senate candidate David McCormick outlines a conservative vision and leadership principles that can win elections and rescue America from decline.

WASHINGTON - November 29, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

In the wake of failed GOP efforts to take back the Senate, including in battleground states like Pennsylvania, conservatives need a new principled, optimistic vision for how they will address the problems of our time. Given most Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, America needs a path out of its current downward spiral of stagnation, disillusionment and decline. And in the face of China's campaign for global supremacy, the nation needs leaders who will fight to preserve America's superpower status. 

In Superpower in Peril: A Battle Plan to Renew America (Center Street, March 14, 2023), David McCormick - former CEO of Bridgewater Associates, U.S. Army paratrooper and candidate for the U.S. Senate - outlines a conservative agenda for American renewal that fuses the populist impulse with common-sense reforms that would expand access to the American dream, enable U.S. technological supremacy, and confront China.  

Drawing on management and leadership lessons honed in uniform, in the boardroom and at the highest levels of government, McCormick issues a call for servant leadership that is as relevant for entrepreneurs and those in business as for politicians and policymakers. Recognizing the talent and untapped potential in the American people, he argues that if we commit ourselves to renewal and reviving the restless American spirit of hard work and self-confidence, America will see a new birth of dynamism, strength, and exceptionalism. In Superpower in Peril, McCormick details: 

  • The need for new, transformational leadership in Washington, in business and across society that will boldly set a vision for the future of America. Inflation, stagnation, and the lingering effects of the pandemic threaten the American dream. Our values are under assault. Our country is being pulled apart by polarization, and the Chinese Communist Party threatens our way of life. Yet our nation's leaders have failed to chart a path forward or answer the critical question: "What comes next?" 
  • The story of the most contested, high-profile Republican primary in the country, and how what happened there paved the way for Republicans to fail to win the majority in the Senate and for Pennsylvania to not have a Republican senator for the first time in seven decades.
  • The most serious external risk to American renewal - the Chinese Communist Party - and what America must do to overcome this existential threat. China has a plan to dominate global affairs, cement its preeminence and end America's role as a superpower. It is time for America's leaders to confront Communist China and establish a comprehensive strategy to preserve American supremacy. 
  • A bold vision for the future of the country and a battle plan to keep America exceptional by revitalizing the American dream and unleashing the potential in all Americans. In order to be competitive in the years ahead, we must harness the vast potential of the digital age and win the race for technological supremacy. 

PRAISE FOR SUPERPOWER IN PERIL

"In Superpower in Peril, David McCormick answers the most important question of our time: How do we save America from the forces that want to tear it apart? This book is a must-read for all who care about the fight for our republic." - Mark Levin, Radio and Television Host

"Superpower in Peril is a manifesto for national renewal, a powerful riposte to those who claim America's best days are behind it. Immigration reform, a National Innovation Council, a bonfire of the Biden administration's regulations, reform of Big Tech, not to mention Big Defense." - Niall Ferguson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Author of Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe

"Superpower in Peril is a timely and provocative guide for what our country must do next, full of lessons from David McCormick's time as a CEO, military officer, and statesman. - Marillyn Hewson, Former Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Lockheed Martin Corporation 

"Superpower in Peril is a book to be read and discussed, but it is also a book to be implemented. It is up to us to ensure that David McCormick's recommendations carry on beyond its pages, drive real change, and restore confidence in our ability to build a better future for generations of Americans to come." - H.R. McMaster, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Author of Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World

Ecogy Energy Helps New York Power Authority Advance Rooftop Community Solar Projects for Westchester County Municipalities

Brooklyn-based Developer, Financier, and Owner-Operator Ecogy Energy ('Ecogy'), Selected for Westchester County's Westchester Community Solar Partnership between New York Power Authority's ('NYPA') and Sustainable Westchester, is Now Developing Solar Energy Projects Across the County.

WESTCHESTER, N.Y. - November 22, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Ecogy Energy, a developer, financier, and owner-operator, was selected through a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) in 2021 by the New York Power Authority (NYPA), in partnership with Sustainable Westchester and Westchester County, to develop solar energy projects under the Westchester Community Solar Partnership (WCSP), along with two other developers. The WCSP broadly aims to power the economic growth of New York State by supplying Westchester County residents and municipalities with locally based, ideal land-use, and discounted electricity costs through community solar projects.

Ecogy is securing preliminary agreements with the first municipality in a series of upcoming projects and has obtained approvals for a Con Edison interconnection and incentives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

Sustainable Westchester, a nonprofit consortium of Westchester County local governments, is the designated community solar acquisition provider for the WCSP and will collaborate with Ecogy to enroll local residents, with a focus on affordable housing communities and low-to-moderate income ("LMI") individuals. By prioritizing these groups in the development plans, NYPA, Westchester County, Ecogy, and Sustainable Westchester are making large strides toward supporting environmental justice and directing benefits to historically underserved and overlooked communities.

"Many homeowners are ineligible to install solar on their homes for a host of reasons, including that they may be renting a property, have too much shade, poor roof conditions, or because of financial restrictions. However, Community Solar is designed to be accessible for all communities and residents, bringing them financial rewards and environmental improvements. We are proud and excited to be partnering with NY-based Ecogy and once again with Sustainable Westchester on an innovative cost and energy-saving initiative," said Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

Community Distributed Generation (CDG) projects help governments and schools support renewable energy developments that benefit their communities and dismantle the inequitable distribution of renewable energy that can occur, redirecting the benefits to those who may not have the space, time, financial resources, or development experience to logistically support their own solar PV system. The WCSP will enable surrounding communities to access clean energy with a simple subscription process, no cost to sign up, no cancellation fees, and a guaranteed discount for subscribers of up to 10% on earned solar credits while offering site lease payments to those municipalities hosting the solar arrays.

The massive shift to clean energy for New York requires exactly the kind of public-private-nonprofit partnership that this project represents. Such collaborations help educate residents about the benefits of community solar, subscribe to community solar projects, and earn long-term savings from renewable energy.

"NYPA and Westchester County are actively pursuing innovative and inclusive renewable energy solutions for municipalities and communities that want to provide energy savings to their constituents," said NYPA Interim President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll. "Prioritizing the underserved is a key project element we focus on as part of our role in helping to realize the state's bold clean energy transition. Community partnerships will serve as a blueprint for renewable energy development for years to come and we are hopeful that our best-in-class examples here in New York State will serve to inspire the rest of the nation."

"We are proud to partner with Westchester County and the New York Power Authority to bring the benefits of solar hosting to Sustainable Westchester's municipal members and the County's school districts. Sustainable Westchester is committed to helping Westchester County achieve New York State's nation-leading climate and equity targets. This partnership will accelerate our achieving those goals, while building on our other successful solar initiatives," said Nina Orville, Executive Director, Sustainable Westchester.

To finance the project, Ecogy intends to utilize NY's Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER) and the NYSERDA NY-Sun Incentive Program, a state initiative offering cash incentives and/or financing for the deployment of qualified solar projects to drive growth in the solar industry. The program is helping New York State advance its Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) implementation targets of 10,000 MW of distributed solar PV and 70% renewable energy by 2030.

Ecogy is building upon its history of leadership in Westchester County, which includes the first community solar projects in Yorktown, Croton-on-Hudson, and Ossining, and the largest solar canopy system in Westchester County with the Maryknoll Society. Sustainable Westchester worked with Ecogy to enroll community members in the Maryknoll Community Solar farm.

Ecogy has also been a leading force on community solar projects in other states, beginning in 2015 with a community solar project for the Town of Strafford, Vermont, which serves the Morrill Library, Barrett Hall, local Newton Elementary School, and the United Church of Strafford. Ecogy is committed to well-sited, close-to-load solar systems that require intense engineering, significant expertise and resources, and a vast amount of collaboration to complete and execute.

"Ecogy is proud to create rooftop community solar solutions for our fellow New Yorkers and continue to open doors for traditionally underserved communities upon which Ecogy has focused for the last 12 years," said Jack Bertuzzi, Ecogy Principal, "None of this would have been  possible without the leadership of the New York Power Authority and Sustainable Westchester, who have been consistently innovative, have progressively supported initiatives that promote renewable energy, and prioritized equitable and just clean energy development."

In coordination with the portfolio of projects, Ecogy plans to install their energy monitoring device, the Econode, which will allow every site to benchmark consumption to further drive efficiency through data-driven results and second-by-second analysis. All projects will have their data accessible, not only to municipalities and subscribers, but also to NYPA's energy management platform, the New York Energy Manager ("NYEM"), helping to grow the data pool used to improve energy efficiency statewide.

Grape Solar’s Oregon Solar Industrial Park (OSIP) to Be the First of Many

Making all solar panel components in America, again

EUGENE, Ore. - November 22, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Grape Solar, Inc. has now secured commitments from leading manufacturers of solar panel components to be part of its first industrial park. The Oregon Solar Industrial Park (OSIP) is a vision Grape Solar has planned since the company started more than a decade ago in Eugene, Oregon, in 2009.

The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, signed into law by President Joe Biden, is a key driver to encourage Made in America solar panels and create tens of thousands of local manufacturing jobs. Grape Solar has positioned itself as the leading innovator, chief architect, and developer of five future solar industrial parks in different regions across the U.S.A., with planned capacity of 100GW requiring $40 billion total investment from private and public partnerships.  

One major category of key components is encapsulant materials used in laminating solar cells into modules during the manufacturing process. These films protect the solar cells from oxygen and moisture, making the panels much more reliable and efficient. 

One of the global large-scale manufacturers of encapsulant material is HIUV, an international producer of EVA and POE materials that has patented technology in the United States. "Making our patented products in the U.S.A. makes perfect sense. We will serve our global customers better by shortening lead time and improving our technical customer support and services locally. We are delighted to be part of Grape Solar's OSIP initiative," said Min Li, Chairman and CEO of HIUV, which is a $2 billion publicly traded company on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (688680.SS)

"Global solar companies are choosing to expand their solar panel manufacturing footprint in the U.S.A. at an unprecedented speed and scale, to join the wave of on-shoring manufacturing that is under way and will last for the next few decades. So far, these companies are all talking about making finished solar panels, however, without a dozen or so components that go into a solar panel, there is no secured supply chain to speak of. That's what OSIP is all about: building every component in America, creating local jobs, contributing to regional economic development, and permanently changing the landscape of America's solar supply chain," commented Ocean Yuan, founder and CEO of Grape Solar, who is the creator of Oregon Solar Industrial Park.

Global Growth Comments on Liquidation of Greg Lindberg’s North Carolina Insurers

'We deeply disagree with the NCDOI's decision to liquidate these companies — and we're surprised and disappointed that things got to this point,' said Global Growth CEO Justin Holbrook, 'They didn't have to.'

ORLANDO, Fla. - November 22, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

In response to the North Carolina court decision to liquidate Colorado Bankers Life Insurance and Bankers Life Insurance, two Global Growth-affiliated insurance companies, Global Growth CEO Justin Holbrook issued the following statement:

"We deeply disagree with the North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI) decision to liquidate these companies — and we're surprised and disappointed that things got to this point. They didn't have to.

"First, we asked the judge for a continuance so that we could engage in discovery to understand the NCDOI's sudden determination that CBL and BLI should be liquidated now. As far as we know, nothing material has changed in terms of the insurance companies' liquidity or ability to meet their current policyholder obligation under the court's prior orders. NCDOI did not approach us before filing their liquidation motion nor explain their reasoning.

"Second, our goal remains helping policyholders get full access to their benefits as quickly as possible. Liquidation simply doesn't do that. Two years or more can pass under liquidation before most policyholders receive their benefits. By contrast, the sale of the NC insurance companies now would help policyholders start receiving their full benefits in a matter of months. The NCDOI has received two signed LOIs to buy our insurance companies, and all they have to do is accept one of them — which would help policyholders now. 

"Third, and most importantly, liquidation should always be a measure of last resort because it impacts state guaranty funds and threatens to leave some policyholders out in the cold. In this situation, liquidation doesn't need to happen at all, since there are other alternatives on the table. By NCDOI's own admission, there is substantial available liquidity in CBL and BLIC, and they are more than able to meet policyholder needs today. In fact, their cash position is so good that NCDOI just filed a request to relax the moratorium standards the court put in place in 2019 so more policyholders could get access to more of their benefits now. We support that decision and would even urge the NCDOI to do more. 

"The bottom line is going through the long process of liquidation makes no sense when the insurance companies can be sold today. Policyholders shouldn't have to wait any longer. Today's decision hurts — not helps — policyholders get full and quick access to their benefits.

"I've spent much of my professional life in public service and learned long ago that working together is always the best way. It saddens me that Commissioner Mike Causey still refuses to do that. In the end, the court's decision today means that policyholders are still the ones paying the price for Mr. Causey's actions."
