$3.3 billion wind investment will add 2,500 MW of clean energy in South Dakota

The Midwest of the United States is the Saudi Arabia of wind!

Meaning, the wind resource in the Upper Midwest is so plentiful as to compare with oil resources in the Middle East.

Adding 900 wind turbines, each over 50 stories tall and generating 2,900 MW, requires an investment of $3.26 billion.

This clean energy will extend to Minneapolis with plans to extend transmission lines into Illinois and Indiana.

Construction of the wind turbines will produce more than 400 jobs. Thereafter, 20 permanent jobs paying over $23 million in wages and benefits will be added.

Wind power is a reliable renewable resource and creating such generation will add jobs, tax benefits, and clean energy.

This device harnesses the cold night sky to generate electricity in the dark

A new generator using thermodynamics produces enough electricity to power a small light bulb. Although it produces much less than a solar panel, this device is used when the sun is down. Triggered by Cooling night air, energy is produced within the “anti-solar panel”. Eventually, everyone would like to see this piece of equipment on a larger scale in hopes to help remote locations, areas that receive little to no light for months at a time, or as backup power. The possibilities will continue to grow as will the work to optimize all uses of this invention.

The next target in the climate-change debate: your gas stove

History was made when Berkeley, CA banned natural gas systems in new buildings. Now multiple cities cross-country are following suit. The strategy is to move towards a greener energy solution through the electric grid. Renewable energy is increasingly powering the grid with many states planning to become fully reliant on green energy by 2050.

However, opposers say increased usage of gas cuts carbon emissions since it burns cleaner than oil or coal. Improved technologies also limit emissions showing a recent decline in those numbers. Other disputes of the proposal include that many business models would be upended, completely halted or suffer large losses. Either way you look at it, the hope is to improve the environment with the least casualties along the way.

Reversing Emissions-Reducing Lightbulb Energy Efficiency Standards

President George W. Bush’s administration implemented energy standards to phase out high energy usage light bulbs. Obama’s administration was set to finalize that legislation in January 2020 to include specialty bulbs becoming more energy efficient. Trump’s administration wants to undo these regulations. Not only would this encourage consumers to spend more money on bulbs with lower life expectancies, it would increase their bills due to less energy efficient products and increase carbon dioxide emissions. If regulations are reversed, they will be challenged.

Turning The World’s Waste Problems Into Energy Solutions

Solar, wind, and water are the most commonly known green energies used across the world. However, with the amount of waste produced each day, engineers are constantly looking to create positive use out of our trash through waste-to-energy (WTE). Many countries including the US have been using WTEs for some time but, some have a much higher production rate which creates many issues. China, being one of these countries, has invested in the world’s largest WTE plant to cut the amount of carbon dioxide released from their landfills. As their economy and population grows, their government is transitioning to cleaner energy. Various areas have similar systems to create clean energy out of unwanted waste. These innovations will hopefully yield “a continuing shift in attitudes toward cleaner, more sustainable production” to “become the norm around the world, combining the future of waste and the future of energy”.

After months of contentious debate, Ohio nuclear bailout bill becomes law

The State of Ohio passed a bill to pay a nuclear power plant $150 million/year to keep operating. It was immediately signed by the Governor.

Yes, you read that right.

A new tax, $0.85/month on all residential customers from 2021 – 2027 is expected to generate $170 million/year.

In addition, this new law will drop the renewable requirements for utilities from 12.5% to 8.5% by 2026. But, after 2026 there is no further requirement. Yep- back to free markets.

This action is in sharp contrast to surrounding states that increased the renewable requirements for energy delivered to their residents.

Ohio chose to bail out a failing power plant at the expense of its future in renewable power.

A green power seller reacts to pending industry reform—with sky-high prices

Green Energy doesn’t have to be much more expensive than grid supplied energy.

An energy marketer is complaining that under recent changes to the Illinois Customer Choice program, their offer of green energy will increase dramatically. Their current offer is 78% higher than ComEd’s rate or $0.12 vs. $0.0672 for 12 months. They are expressing surprise that customers are complaining when they find out.

The changes to the Illinois Customer Choice program will require disclosure or comparison to the utility price and prevent short term fixed prices (trial offers) from renewing into long terms.

Realgy Energy Services discloses every month how our price compares to the utility rate at www.realgyenergyservices.com.

Water breakthrough: Device uses solar power to produce clean water – and electricity

Obtaining fresh drinking water is not easy for certain areas of the world. There has been constant research regarding various projects to convert non-drinkable water into something potable. Peng Wang of King Abdullah University and his team released their discoveries on the topic this week. The technology they use “recycles waste heat from photovoltaic (PV) solar panels using a multi-stage membrane distillation system to produce clean, drinkable water.” The idea is to be as useful as possible for those with limited access to fresh water such as in Africa and Asia. The benefits from the PV system alongside the yielding of water speak for themselves. However, looking at the bigger picture, it has potential to be used wherever there is a need for clean water- to irrigate plants, to clean, or even to colonize another planet.
