Sharp surge in energy prices threatens economic recovery and is already slowing growth

We’ve seen countless material costs increase throughout the pandemic including skyrocketing fossil fuel rates.  Consumers are wondering how long prices will continue to rise especially in the northern US with winter fast approaching.

The lack of resources coupled with higher costs are affecting global supply chains. Oil and coal are making up for the lack of natural gas and wind power supplies but are also showing rising prices compared to last year.

The probability of a recession increases when energy prices are steadily moving towards a higher percentage of GDP. Global effects on supply chains also impact numbers and priorities for spending. How Americans choose to spend their money is forecasted to be different than past years. Where they cut back on costs will affect not just the industry but overall economic growth. Economists believe we don’t need to worry about a recession at this point but are concerned with how badly it can cause growth to be affected negatively.

Vistra Accelerates Closure of Ohio Coal Plant

VISTRA Energy will accelerate the retirement of their 1,200 MW (enough power to provide energy to 1,400 homes) plant on or before May 2022.

What will replace it? Solar or wind energy with battery storage.

The reason? Money. The price of power that VISTRA could receive has declined by over 50%.

Only renewable energy is economical enough to generate power at the expected energy rates.

Illinois Shines

With the rise of solar usage, incentives are more available now and many are implemented through state programs. Illinois Shines was created by the Illinois Power Agency (IPA) to support developments for distributed solar generation and community solar. Monitored in accordance with the Future Energy Jobs Act, the IPA purchases Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from community solar projects and sets costs through the Adjustable Block Program known as Illinois Shines.

Community solar benefits areas that cannot install rooftop arrays due to limited space, high costs, and issues with zoning laws. Illinois Shines increases solar access for residents that may not easily receive green energy while also providing information and inspections for vendors to become approved.

Illinois Shines’ evaluation of Realgy Energy Service’s solar arrays at Ridgeland Recreation Complex recently concluded. They state Realgy’s project is in compliance with program guidelines. We are proud to serve the Illinois community and help the state meet its renewable energy goals.

US Approves 1st Major Offshore Wind Energy Project

The United States joined the rest of the world and issued final permits allowing for the development of large-scale offshore wind projects.

Large scale: 62 turbines standing 90 stories above the water with underground cables bringing electricity onshore to 400,000 homes. The turbines will be located about a mile off the coast of Massachusetts.

Wind power is the least costly energy power to build and the new turbines from General Electric are the largest available.
