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"

Enviromarxists? Its funny when people use silly labels like that.

The majority of my life (33 years) the heat came from wood. Its good reliable and relatively cheap to heat with. It is "dirty" but not so much that it can't be easily dealt with.

The ash has a real good use. Traction on snow in the winter. Can't count the times I seen my dad spreading it out on the driveway after he got the driveway clear.

Also stoves can be bought with and retrofitted with catalytic convertors.

In fact if I were in the market for one I would buy a stove made of soapstone. The put out heat long after the fire goes out in addition to lasting a lot longer than cast iron stoves and they don't need firebrick in them. I say that because at one time dad had a problem finding firebrick for our stove.

EPA Cracking Down on Wood Stoves New U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations could change the way you heat your home. The new regulations would lower the level of emissions wood stoves can release. Forbes Magazine reports that the regulations would ban the production and sale of 80 percent of the types of stoves people currently use.

Takes a few weeks for it to be released to the media. You didnt believe that 89% of the "sooon to be shut down dirty coal power plants" were running in Jan 14 or that there was a shortage of gas to run the gas plants.

Long live COAL...

Ya see - Dirty soon to be retired coal plants were running. Many gas units couldnt get gas because of winter heating and the pipe capacity was full. What we gonna do when they shuttem down??

FERC Commissioner Philip Moeller said “early numbers” suggest that 9,000 MW of capacity in PJM was unable to get sufficient gas during the cold snap. That is somewhat surprising because other regions of the country, namely New England, are thought to be more exposed to reliability problems due to a growing dependence on gas for both power generation and heating. FERC staff said New England was spared problems during the cold snap because temperatures there were actually “well below their all time winter peak,” requiring no emergency procedures.

The new dependence of US electrical generation on natural gas has raised new threats to both electrical and natural gas systems as each system becomes more dependent on the other. The problem is especially dangerous at winter electrical peak, because natural gas is also used for direct home and business heating. Demand for both gas and electricity is at its highest for both power sources at the same time in extremely cold weather. Shortages of gas cause shortages of electricity. We saw this clearly last winter in New England.

And another report from calhounpowerline dot com. - - - Highly Centralized Eastern Interconnect Showing More Signs of Brittleness in Cold January 22, 2014 tags: FERC Issues, WV Blackout.The Eastern Interconnect, the inter-connected grid system that ties together all of the US and Canada east of the Rockies, except for most of Texas, is showing all the danger signs of hyper-centralization and dependence on high voltage transmission. Back in early January, the first big cold snap caused PJM Interconnection to set a new winter peak load record and resulted in appeals to customers to reduce their electrical use. Now we have this account of the multiple stresses that this winter’s cold weather is putting on our brittle electric grid.

You just mad cause I am right and you made a big effort to discredit me and my info. SO. The post only lets a person copy on 1000 charachters at a time. If you have a 3000 charachter report, then one must do it multiple times. Why dont you have any comments about the CONTENT of what I posted instead of denying and deflecting the truth of what I told you. You acannot admit that YOU are NOT the expert in this case, as I previously said. You cannot prove your point so attack comething like copying.

"A decision that customers should pay billions for capacity and pay unlimited energy prices whenever energy prices explode

The Maryland Public Service Commission said PJM has acknowledged that 6,800 megawatts of generation -- mainly gas combustion turbines -- would experience costs above the price cap, but the waiver would allow costs to rise for the entire region. "Granting PJM's request potentially would impose hundreds of millions of dollars of payments upon end users to maintain needed electric service under extreme cold conditions, despite the fact that as much as 95 percent of that money would not be paid to permit recovery of actual generator service costs, but rather to support economic principles espoused by PJM and its generators," the commission said. NextEra Energy Power Marketing LLC, told FERC that PJM's "on the fly" request threatens to erode a fundamental part of the region's market -- without the input of critical stakeholders. NextEra, notably, is a member of RESA. "A decision that customers should pay billions for capacity and pay unlimited energy prices wheneve

One nice thing about it was it happened the first month of Ohio's deregulated electricity market and it bankrupted all of those shady players that were trying to undercut big utilities prices to steal away customers and business and then RAISE the prices after consumers were hooked !!!

89 perceny of the scheduled to be retired COAL units were running. The gas units couldn't get enough gas to even start up due to heating using it all. Quite a conundrum. But the air will be clean !!!
