Utility leader: New England headed for an energy ‘tipping point’

"The New England electricity market will rapidly worsen, requiring further out-of-market actions to adequately compensate generators in order to preserve grid reliability... State subsidies will beget reliability subsidies, driving consumer costs ever higher and doing away with future market-based investments for new or existing power generation."

Powering countries, empowering people

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen cuts to the point -- that billions of people in Africa, india, and elsewhere are systematically being denied reliable access (or any access) to electricity by cold-hearted bureaucrats and elitist governments who have decided for these people that no electricity is better than fossil fuel electricity (or even hydro). Yet when people do gain access to affordable energy, their productivity can skyrocket.

Brexit’s energy lesson for California, et al.

Unelected radical environmental groups have been dictating California energy and environmental policy for over a decade, and now the state has shuttered its final nuclear power plant -- which alone produces twice the state's total amount of solar energy capacity. Barring a major reversal of policy, Californians should expect blackouts in years to come. That is, unless some bureaucratic overstep ignites a fire in the hearts of Californians.

EPA’s clean power fraud

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen makes a strong case for reining in the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the future of American prosperity. For example, the EPA's new Clean Power Plan may triple or even quadruple electricity rates in states now heavily dependent on coal for electricity generation. Sue and settle, junk science, and even deceptive or fraudulent practices by EPA employees must be curtailed.
