Grass Fed Beef and Solar Energy: Perfect Match.

A cattle ranch might not be what most environmentalists want to cheer about but, how about when they generate 280 MW of power (enough to serve 60,000 homes)?

The Hearst cattle ranch will supply Apple’s Cupertino campus with the power.

The solar energy generated will AVOID the release of 109,000 tons of C02 every year. That’s the equivalent of 22,00 cars off the road. In addition, the ranch will continue to produce about 3,000 head of cattle a year of grass fed beef. The ranch, Apple, and environmentalists agree: win-win-win.

Solar poised for growth in Michigan

Posted on: February 15th, 2018 by rgadmin

Michigan regulators have adjusted what the utilities will pay for power generators that meet the qualification established under PURPA.

In most cases, it was lowered to reflect the actual costs utilities pay today.

However, in lowering the avoid cost existing PURPA qualifying power plants will get paid less.

Avoided costs rate had not been changed in Michigan since the 1980s. An update was overdue.

Solar and wind advocates believe the new rates will encourage large scale renewable energy in the state.

Tax law changes will affect you.

Posted on: January 18th, 2018 by rgadmin

So, the tax cut you heard about is lowering electric rates.

Baltimore Gas and Electric filed to lower its electric rate by 15%. This is due to their corporate tax rate decreasing from 35% to 21%. No word on if salaries are increasing for their employees. This will undoubtedly be a trend for utilities.

Remember, a utility is a monopoly and they can only earn their guaranteed rate of return; any surplus has to be refunded to customers.

NIPSCO receives multi-million dollar bailout for aging coal plants

Posted on: December 15th, 2017 by rgadmin

NIPSCO's R.M. Schahfer Generating Station in Wheatfield

What is the point of regulatory oversight if it fails to protect rate payers from unsustainable and higher cost decisions? NIPSCO the monopoly utility owns and operates aging coal facilities which are the costliest power plants to run in the entire area. NIPSCO admits that shutting them down WOULD SAVE money and cause less pollution.

HOWEVER, the Indiana regulators have approved their continued operation. If NIPSCO was a competitive business, these plants would be shut down. Indiana’s electric pricing is some of the highest in the area and this regulatory process explains why. The businesses and residents of Indiana deserve better oversight by their regulators.

One year later, Illinois energy jobs law bearing fruit

Posted on: December 8th, 2017 by rgadmin

What creates electricity and jobs? Solar Energy!

A new community solar plant will be generating enough energy to power 400 homes in Tazewell County. Building and maintaining the solar plant required about 30 jobs. The solar plant and the jobs were the result of Illinois’ Future Energy Jobs Act. Any community in the state can do the same due to the legislation which Sen. Dave Koehler, D-Peoria helped pass.
