Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) use greenwashing to hawk products they claim to be environmentally friendly to gain market advantages.
America already has dams in place that are leaving substantial clean, efficient energy on the table.
What about wind and solar? We feel like they’re clean because we don’t burn them. Well… not directly. But, let’s be real.
The extensive intermittency of renewable power makes any cost savings irrelevant, because the cost to overcome the intermittency is astronomical.
By Mary Kay Barton: Big wind and solar are neither Green, nor efficient.
There's nothing "clean," nor "green" about locating and extracting all the lithium, cobalt and rare-earth's these schemes require.
A careful read of Xcel's statements reveal they are not promising to do anything.
Climate alarmists must prove expensive, weather-dependent energy is green and sustainable
Now we have Colorado's governor, legislature, public utility commission and power utility Xcel all lined up and ready to roll over the people of Colorado.
Life was hard and dirty, but at least you could look forward to a ripe old age of 40.
Generating utilities are proposing to go way beyond adding capacity. They also want to shut down perfectly good generators, to make room for a huge buildup of wind and solar (plus battery storage). A recipe for disaster.
Xcel stands to make huge profits from global warming policy. Being a regulated utility, the more they spend the more they make... and the more customers pay.
Will your Starbucks actually get electricity from wind turbines? Will transmission lines run directly from the turbines to each Starbucks store? If not, how will they separate wind-generated electrons from the renewable-fossil-hydro-nuclear mixture on the regional grid?
There are a number of studies that seem to say that 100% renewables is feasible without filling the world with batteries. How do they do that? It turns out that there are several common tricks.
By Steve Goreham The wholesale price for electricity in Virginia is about 3 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The electricity produced from the two offshore turbines will receive 78 cents per kWh, or a staggering 26 times the wholesale price.
