“Coal, which fueled the world’s biggest economies for more than a century, is increasingly losing out to renewables.

The latest example of how one of the fossil fuels is being squeezed out of the market came this week in Britain, which went for a record 55 hours without its any of its power plants producing electricity by burning coal. At the same time wind turbines produced more power.”

Nate Adams shared 100% campaign's post to the group: Electrify Everything.

If heat pumps can already compete with cheap natural gas, what if the cost goes down for electricity?

My bet is that electricity will get cheaper over time and become the least expensive fuel. What do you think?

"In 2008 Georgetown’s electricity rate was 11.4 cents per kilowatt hour. Last year it was only 8.5 cents."

Georgetown, Texas, has become something of a green celebrity for reaching its 100% renewable energy goal in just three years, and now the city is taking clean power to the next level with a plan to pay residents for installing rooftop solar.
A look at the businesses and nonprofits working to lessen their impact on the environment.

"So far, the solar industry has grown fastest in California, driven in part by state policies to speed the transition to climate-friendly energy sources. The st...ate got 17% of its electricity from solar and wind in 2016, the most recent year for which the California Energy Commission has data. The state also added 95 megawatts of storage last year.
Already, California officials have started rejecting proposed gas plants and asking utilities for more batteries instead."

We like it, Cali.
