Illinois rated second in the country in grid modernization survey

Posted on: November 16th, 2017 by rgadmin

Illinois is being recognized as one of the top states that has invested or modernized its electric grid (transmission and distribution).

The Commerce Commission and the state Legislators have authorized very large expenditures, in some cases without showing any benefit.

The real question will be HOW this investment will provide returns in reliability, lower costs and improved services to the people of Illinois.

Tesla Powerpacks will supply Nantucket’s backup power

Posted on: November 10th, 2017 by rgadmin

Tesla’s Powerpack battery systems have been selected by Nantucket to boost the backup power and grid stabilizers. The current generators will need to be replaced and National Grid decided this will be the best alternative power support system. Multiple US properties have already been using these Powerpacks, including Puerto Rico as they recover from hurricane damage.

Joining the electric vehicle charging stations downtown will be a $50,000 solar-electric installation. The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has been working to increase sustainability around the city. Multiple projects are in place to reach this goal, with this recent endeavor being one of the necessary baby steps. According to plans, energy generated will be sent to DTE’s electrical grid with DDA receiving credit.

ComEd community solar tariff approved by Illinois regulator

Posted on: October 12th, 2017 by rgadmin

The ICC approved ComEd’s solar tariff application. A solar customer can subscribe to a minimum and a maximum of the output of a single community solar installation. Various concerns were discussed about the pricing and exclusion of transmission charges. However, the ICC sided with ComEd. There is a possibility for adjustments but it is uncertain how intervenors will move forward. The tariff is another step in furthering the efforts of the Future Energy Jobs Act.

Electric cars will wipe out oil demand equal to Iran’s output by 2025, Barclays says

Posted on: October 9th, 2017 by rgadmin

A Tesla Model S vehicle being charged.

Due to the growing demand for electric vehicles (sales rose 40% last year), oil consumption could drastically decrease over the next 20 years. Various markets have proposed banning or curbing vehicles that burn fossil fuels and more are considering the same. Barclays analysts project that by 2025, 3.5 million barrels a day of oil demand could be wiped out. To compare, Iran is the 3rd largest OPEC producer and pumps a total 3.8 million barrels a day. The projections only increase as time goes on. However, there are still hesitations to electric vehicles especially with consistently low gasoline prices encouraging larger vehicle purchases.

Another Nebraska family installs solar panels in path of Keystone XL pipeline

Posted on: October 5th, 2017 by rgadmin

solar panels

The Keystone XL oil pipeline path would be from Canada through several states, threatening the health and businesses of many Americans. Landowners have been fighting the proposal, some by installing solar panels in the path of the pipeline. This resistance to the expansion of fossil fuel usage shows the need to focus on creating more renewable energy systems.  They continue to urge the commissioners to deny this project a permit.

Electric Forecast

Posted on: September 20th, 2017 by rgadmin

Total U.S. electricity generation from utility-scale power plants averaged 11,145 gigawatthours per day in 2016. Forecast U.S. generation declines by 1.2% in 2017, which mostly reflects expectations of milder temperatures in the third quarter of 2017 compared with the same period last year. Forecast generation grows by 1.8% in 2018 based largely on a forecast of colder temperatures during the first quarter of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017 and on the expectation of a growing economy.

EIA expects the share of U.S. total utility-scale electricity generation from natural gas to fall from an average of 34% in 2016 to about 31% in 2017 as a result of higher natural gas prices, increased generation from renewables and coal, and lower electricity demand. Coal’s forecast generation share rises from 30% last year to almost 32% in 2017. The projected generation shares for natural gas and coal are nearly identical in 2018, averaging between 31% and 32%.

Wind electricity generating capacity at the end of 2016 was 81 gigawatts (GW). EIA expects wind capacity additions in the forecast will bring total wind capacity to 88 GW by the end of 2017 and to 102 GW by the end of 2018.

Total utility-scale solar electricity generating capacity at the end of 2016 was 22 GW. EIA expects solar capacity additions in the forecast will bring total utility-scale solar capacity to 29 GW by the end of 2017 and to 32 GW by the end of 2018.
