Final testing on the Muskrat Falls transmission system begins anew Tuesday. If the tests succeed, the megaproject on Labrador's Churchill River will have finally crossed the finish line, albeit five years later than initially projected. However, in the case of another failure, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro will have to wait the better part of a year before trying again — a setback that would mean millions in added interest costs for the multibillion-dollar "boondoggle" whose price tag has near

A curious deer gave a deaf cat quite the surprise while visiting a yard in Nevada City, California.Gary Sumner owns the CCTV camera that captured this moment in his backyard. The video shows the cat and deer in a standoff before the cat eventually spooks the deer enough for it to hop away.“I noticed this curious young deer approaching my neighbor’s cat, who happened to be deaf. I thought it was cute, so I decided to take an apple out to the deer,” he said. “Then I sliced off a piece of apple and threw it to the deer, who was afraid to approach until I left.”Sumner told Storyful he has several security cameras outside his home, and said he leaves a pan of water out for the animals.“We live in the forest, and have many critters that come around for a drink, or a snack, as I occasionally leave fruit or vegetables out for them,” he said.

Hundreds of used electric vehicle battery packs are enjoying a second life at a California facility connected to the state's power grid, according to a company pioneering technology it says will dramatically lower the cost of storing carbon-free energy. B2U Storage Solutions Inc, a Los Angeles-based startup, said it has 25 megawatt-hours of storage capacity made up of 1,300 former EV batteries tied to a solar energy facility in Lancaster, California.
