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"

We will talk the winters after 2015 when all this bad bad coal power plants are closed and you are freezing your old liberal as s off and you have no power becasue you cannot afford to pay your $1000 electric bill from last montha and they shut you off.

Buy plenty of extra gas cans for that generator. At $3.50 a gallon for gas, your gonna run up quite a weekly tab for your electricity. You will fing out it aint so easy making your own power. Have at it !

There is news on Obamacare, your just ignoring it.

-Work hours being cut in preparation for Obamacare employer mandate -Obamacare subsidies to reach $11 billion; healthcare system running entirely on unsustainable debt spending -360,000 Obamacare Enrollees At Risk Of Losing Subsidies -41 million Amricans are still uninsured. those Tens of millions of people who remained uninsured this year face tax penalties for the first time, unless they can secure an exemption.

I have been in the electricity generation for 35 years. No crystal ball. Look up what the CEO's of DUKE and others have to say about it. All you have to do is know who to listen to. As simple as that !!

"""""So your premise is that if we go 100% solar it wont handle the base load ? Don't you think that there are people who are experts on this and have thought of that ? """"

Those experts are being swayed by environmentalists. Beright is right. Your renewables and sun and wind power absolutely cannot meet the current appetite for electricity but you arent buying that because you see all other answers as being right wing nut job lies so go on and live in your own little woeld. We will talk the winters after 2015 when all this bad bad coal power plants are closed and you are freezing your old liberal as s off and you have no power becasue you cannot afford to pay your $1000 electric bill from last montha and they shut you off. You see the wind didnt blow enough and the sun didnt shine enough and there are no more cheap coal units running so the power co had to purchase replacement power and it was friggin expensive...and they passed that cos

I am not against alternative power. Just trying to be realistic as I go around looking for some 100W light bulbs.

Oh shucks, I forgot! Nancy says I don't need those anymore.

Nancy knows best.

So your premise is that if we go 100% solar it wont handle the base load ? Don't you think that there are people who are experts on this and have thought of that ? As much as you anti-alternative power folks hate it , it is the future and you just gotta accept it !

The point is Solar can't do Baseload. Even the Gov'T knows it:

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is targeting March 2015 to start loading fuel at the Watts Bar 2 nuclear plant in Tennessee, the "federal utility" noted recently in documents made public by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

TVA said Aug. 12 that work on Unit 2 of the Watts Bar nuclear plant is 90% complete and that roughly 3,100 workers are currently engaged in the effort to bring more than 1,100 MW of "BASELOAD" energy online.

And your point is ?????

Most solar generation now has natural gas production when there's clouds or when the load is heavy !

Do you understand the term Base Load? Base load power sources are those plants which can generate dependable power to consistently meet demand.

Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) signed a $500 million commitment to expand solar power in North Carolina.

Duke will acquire and build three solar facilities totaling 128 MW in capacity. Duke Energy also signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with five new solar projects in the state, representing 150 MW of capacity. Together, the eight projects will have a capacity of 278 MW. The commitment includes investments in the three facilities and the value of the PPAs.

278mw? One of Muskingum River Units has 237 and unit 5 has over 615.

Let the sun shine Nelly!

The facts are there greek , and if you choose to be like a mushroom and live in the dark that's all on you ! But don't try to bring a lot of right -wing hooey here and try to pass it off as "facts" !Just because facts don't agree with your politics doesn't make them any less a fact !
