James DeGale has promised to produce a sharper performance against Fulgencio Zúñiga this weekend.Harlesden’s European super-middleweight champion will be looking to end 2012 in style when he faces the 35-year-old Colombian at Hull’s Sports Arena.DeGale returned from a period of inactivity in October, prevailing on points after a gruelling 12 rounds against Frenchman Hadillah Mohoumadi.But the former Olympic gold medallist is determined to be more authoritative this time.“I’ve got to use my feet a lot more than I did in my last fight – I was on the ropes for far too long,” he said.“It wasn’t a vintage James DeGale performance. It was an okay performance but the main thing was that I got the win.“This time I’m going to use my boxing skills, use my feet and box nicely. I’m going to show the fans how well I can box and put on a good, good performance.”Having seen his career stall for several months because of a long-running dispute with his former promoter Frank Warren, Saturday’s clash, which will be live on Channel 5, will be DeGale’s second bout since signing with Mick Hennessy.He is expecting to fight again as early as next month, with a world title challenge his aim for 2013.DeGale said: “By the time I have this fight and the one in January, that’s three fights in four months, so I couldn’t really ask for more than that.“It’s taken a lot of weight off of my shoulders. I can think properly now without having to worry about when I’m next boxing or anything else outside the ring – that’s over now.“I’m ready for Saturday and I’m just looking forward to the future with Hennessy Sports and Channel 5.“Next year is going to be a big year. I want to be busy and I’m making them strides towards a world title.”See also:Let history decideDeGale tipped to silence ‘mental’ criticsDeGale overpowers Sanavia to retain titleDeGale joins Hennessy and plans returnDeGale v Mohoumadi: Watch the pre-fight press conferenceJames DeGale and Hadillah Mohoumadi go head-to-headDeGale wins to retain European titleEx-champion Pavlik still on DeGale’s radarDeGale to take on Colombian veteranDeGale aiming to end the year in 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

The South Carolina General Assembly has passed legislation that permits homeowners to lease photovoltaic (PV) equipment from third-party installers, loosening what PVSolarReport has called some of the most restrictive PV laws in the country.The measure, which has been sent to the governor for a signature, establishes a legal basis for financing rooftop solar equipment through lease agreements, according to a report at Utilitydive.com, and follows lengthy negotiations involving solar advocates, utilities, solar installers, and others.The opportunity to lease solar panels instead of having to buy them outright saves homeowners a hefty initial investment. Also, solar installers, such as SolarCity and SunPower, typically claim that homeowners will pay lower rates for power generated on their own roofs than they would through their utilities. Homeowners of leased systems aren’t responsible for maintenance.Third-party funding of PV systems has “dramatically expanded” PV capacity wherever it has been available, Utilitydive.com said.In addition to opening the door to leased systems, the bill maintains South Carolina’s current net-metering rules while requiring state regulators to take a closer look at the system with a “value-of-solar proceeding.” These hearings are aimed at setting a rate for electricity homeowners sell to the grid.About 5% of South Carolina’s net electrical generation in 2013 came from renewable sources, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Most of that, 59%, came from hydroelectric projects. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, South Carolina ranked 34th in the country for installed PV in November 2013 with 4.6 megawatts of capacity. That’s enough to power 410 homes.
