CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

No one is trying to convince you of a thing Harry you are an indoctrinated socialist as we all know from the other paper. Your little pet topic is Global warming and since you cannot get it going over there, you want to try it here.

“It only makes economic sense when you can FORCE it into the system by using your power to mandate it, this is not a free market decision. ”

Of course it isn’t, since Ga. Power is not a “free market” business. It’s a heavily-regulated public utility. I think most of us prefer that a state agency regulate rates, coverage area, etc. for electric monopolies.

Suppose Ohio Power wanted to abandon rural Morgan County, yank out infrastructure, and sell its stations, transformers, poles, and lines to Columbus Southern for use in Franklin County. Ohio Power might try to justify its action by arguing, “It’s a free market decision. We can earn more money in urban Columbus.” Wouldn’t we expect our own Republican regulatory body, the PUCO, to stop Ohio Power?

It’s not set up as a free market, so the “not a free market decision” argument won’t fly.

Republican regulators in Georgia recognize that a strategy too dependent on fossil fuels isn't in the best interest of their state, so they are embracing an "all of the above" energy policy.

That should be, "More and more ARE conceding. . ."

"once they learn to make money from it, they will sing from the hymnal"

Exactly!

More and more and conceding that solar power makes good economic sense.

BeRight posted, "The Republican politicians who regulate Georgia's power market have successfully pressured Georgia Power to add more solar energy to its mix."

Seems it's no longer just a Democratic initiative.

Just like the rest of the Global Warming hoax crowd, once they learn to make money from it, they will sing from the hymnal

Beright...thanks for the information. yes...water vapor...created by condensation as well as thermal transfer. since there is no real amount of latent heat nor recoverable pressure, i can see where it has no reall dollar value except by way of Public Perception...mine included.

The largest Southern Co. subsidiary will start selling and installing solar panels on homes Wednesday, a move that could broaden the alternative energy market and also worry the utility's competitors.

The decision is perhaps as symbolic as it is financial. Southern Co. is one of the largest U.S. utilities, burns significant fossil fuels and is led by a CEO who once dismissed the importance of small-scale solar energy.

Company officials now see distributed solar power as a threat to its traditional business model, and a new state law taking effect Wednesday allows Georgia residents to lease solar panels from firms other than electric monopolies. The Republican politicians who regulate Georgia's power market have successfully pressured Georgia Power to add more solar energy to its mix.

Actually, it is water vapor.

how many pounds an hour of steam do you think was bing emitted? too bad it could not have been repurposed.

Coaluser - When the grid gets tight, and the remaining capacity is switched toward the East coast, I hope some of these geniuses in this area, some of whom even believed the steam emitted from cooling towers was actually smoke, have a good supply of non-perishable food on hand.
