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.

Multiple US properties have already been using these Powerpacks, including Puerto Rico as they recover from hurricane damage.

Hemlock Semiconductor to lay off 100 workers

Posted on: November 9th, 2017 by rgadmin

Ever wonder what ingredients are in the products we use? Most of us realize glass uses sand and computer chips and solar panels use silicon….but from where? Probably overseas, right? WRONG.

Hemlock runs mines producing poly silicon in Michigan. They just closed their second facility in Tennessee. The U.S. is blessed with abundant coal, some of the best wind resources for generating wind power, abundant silicon (the main ingredient in solar panels), and enough natural gas that we can export it.

With such resources, you have to ask yourself: “why don’t we have an energy policy that takes these blessings into account?”

New Illinois rules aim to protect customers of alternative energy suppliers

Posted on: November 8th, 2017 by rgadmin

meters

Add competition while keeping a monopoly…of course there is confusion. Utility regulators initially wanted competition and now appear to see competition as deceptive. Instead of pushing energy marketers and utilities to clearly adopt “customer choice” as a clear alternative, the regulators are focusing on energy marketing sales practices. Competitive energy markets are not new, nor is buying things. So, why the confusion with energy sales?

Comparisons

Most regulators think it’s about the rate, however, the true answer is: it’s NOT. Low rates and saving money should be the driver, but like anything else you buy, quality (in energy’s case terms and conditions) is an important consideration. Comparing the price of energy without looking at the quality issues will always invite confusion.

Fair dealing; do not lie, do not mislead, and do not commit fraud

Consumers have strong consumer protection laws. Utilities have complaint departments as do all energy marketers, the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) can remove energy marketers, the Illinois Attorney General’s (IAG) office can seek restitution, and the Illinois State Attorney can prosecute fraud. Energy marketers are required NOT to mislead or commit fraud.

Market competition

No system is more ruthless in removing inefficiency, driving down costs, and providing service as competition. EVERYTHING to support true competition should be implemented. Realgy supports aggressive policing of energy marketers and has applauded the action of the ICC and IAG in these matters. In addition, allowing market competition to fully drive down and deliver energy is the real long term solution.

Berg: Lawmaker turned lobbyist turns the tables on taxpayers

Posted on: October 27th, 2017 by rgadmin

FILE - Illinois State Capitol

Rep. Brandon Phelps resigned from his House seat and two weeks later registered as a lobbyist.  He is not the first to help formulate energy policy then leave office and take lobbying work from energy interests. Among his clients are some of those same energy interests regulated by Phelps’ committees. Those connections are sure to help him in his new position, especially with lawmaker family members. It’s all about the networking, right?
