“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 dirtie...st 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.”
Ahead of Earth Day, we have a chance to take an optimistic look at climate change – focused on hope, not fear. “Climate of Hope” is a blueprint for how we can u...phold the Paris Agreement. In it, Carl Pope and I explain how despite federal inaction on climate change, cities, businesses and citizens are leading – and winning – the fight to protect our planet. https://mikebloom.bg/2HF3Gmr
"In 2008 Georgetown’s electricity rate was 11.4 cents per kilowatt hour. Last year it was only 8.5 cents."
"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.
This might be a good model to insist on in Ohio
That GM is going to use renewables to power Ohio operations is great, but why are the jobs in Illinois? ask your Representative !
