Ameren request for lower energy efficiency targets stokes division in Illinois

Posted on: August 16th, 2017 by rgadmin

When does negotiating STOP and work begins? Perhaps after you sign the agreement? NOT if you are Ameren. They want to amend an agreement that took 2 years and countless parties to negotiate. Ameren agreed to reduce emissions to help lower consumer’s energy bills and reduce climate change. They still want to be paid if they achieve their goals but, they want them lower.

In looking to reduce energy efficiency goals, Ameren is trying to create separation between Chicago issues and downstate issues; arguing that Chicago bureaucrats don’t know downstate Illinois. This might be fair if it WASN’T for the FACT that Ameren negotiated these goals with downstate bureaucrats.

Also, isn’t saving money and reducing greenhouse gases going to affect both Chicago and downstate the same?

American solar industry rises up against Suniva Section 201 trade petition

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by rgadmin

American solar industry rises up against Suniva Section 201 trade petition

Suniva and SolarWorld have filed a trade petition with the US International Trade Commission (ITC). The petition seeks to subject imported solar equipment to trade tariffs. This could double solar prices, stopping growth and destroying 88,000 jobs. The energy independence the US has gained would halt and country-wide investments would be jeopardized. The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) leads the opposition due to the endangerment of America’s solar jobs.

Consumers Energy gets green light for rate hike

Posted on: August 7th, 2017 by rgadmin

How hard is it to get a raise of $29,211,000? If you’re Consumers Energy, all you had to do was ask!

Yes, as a monopoly provider (all utilities are monopolies) of natural gas they told Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) regulators they want to spend $90,000,000 next year on improvements.

After review, the MPSC approved the $29 million. Consumers will increase all their customer’s bills to collect this amount and margin on it! Yep, a utility ONLY makes money by spending money. So, the MPSC will make sure the money is spent on system improvements and not just new conference centers.

50% Rise in Renewable Energy Needed to Meet Ambitious State Standards

Posted on: July 28th, 2017 by rgadmin

Renewable energy production (wind, solar, wave, and biomass) has been the fastest growing energy producing technology over the last 8 years. However, if renewable energy is to meet all State issued renewable goals, it’s hardly started. Every State has set a goal in order to shift energy production to a sustainable effort, increase technology jobs in their State, and reduce greenhouse gases.

No state has decreased their renewable energy goal. The cost of renewables is comparable to fossil fuel technology. So… how much renewable energy has to come online to meet ALL the State’s renewable goals? The chart below shows the current level of renewable energy production in 2017 and the growth that is required to meet each region’s collective renewable energy standard. Renewable energy has to grow from under 10 TWh to over 150 TWh. Such growth is exiting and will cause new jobs, less pollution, and new technology.

Consider the following; if just 10% (current estimates are close to 30%) of cars and trucks in the US converted to electric power (battery), the renewable energy produced would be used ONLY to power those cars and trucks.

Don’t squander America’s leadership in nuclear energy

Posted on: July 27th, 2017 by rgadmin

nuclear

Nuclear energy in the private sector has been beneficial but certain needs may not be met if energy innovation is purely in their hands. Federal control is necessary for national security. To maintain a leadership role worldwide, the U.S. must instill several strategies within the nuclear energy realm.

  1. Ensure significant and safe production
  2. Compete in the international marketplace and win for the private sector
  3. Actively partner with countries that have no nuclear energy
  4. Lead innovatively

Continuing to employ private-public partnerships domestically and internationally will prove the U.S. can grow their influence and safely lead the way for the next generation.

Senate appropriators advance $38.4 billion energy spending bill

Posted on: July 24th, 2017 by rgadmin

The Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act was approved to support investments with infrastructure, research, and security. The $38.4 billion budget for the bill is above the President’s request and delegates the bulk of spending towards the Energy Department. Some disagreement on details include amendments to boost spending on solar and wind energy. Programs that encourage the U.S.’s energy independence are prioritized within an amendment that supports nuclear. Sen. Graham believes without supporting nuclear, the U.S. will not become the low carbon, green economy we want to be. When the bill comes up for a final vote on the floor, we expect to see a push to boost renewable energy.
