Colorado Energy Plan bid rigging?

The Colorado Energy Plan is a massive $2.5 billion scheme by Xcel Energy that substitutes wind and solar-plus-storage power for existing coal fired generation.

Batteries not included in renewable fantasy plans

The problem is batteries, which we never hear about when these grand plans are announced. Batteries are not included, even though they will be needed in impossible quantities. Here are the simple facts which dare not be mentioned.

Green energy wave coming in Colorado?

The good news is that the fracking-killing Proposition 112 did not pass, but the bad news is that it got 43% of the votes, which in political terms is a lot. Let-wing politicians see this near victory as a mandate for change. The ugly news is that the new Governor is a radical green and the Democrats now control both houses in the legislature. This likely adds up to a green energy wave coming in Colorado.
