Are Solar and Wind Really Killing Coal, Nuclear and Grid Reliability?

renewableenergyworld.com 25 May '17, 12pm

It would be similar to asking in the late 1990s whether email was killing fax machines and snail mail. The answer would have been an unequivocal “yes” followed by cheers of “hallelujah” and “it’s about time” because both had bumped into the limits of their utility. How quickly 1990s consumers leaped to something faster, less impactful and cheaper than the older approach was a sign that they were ready for it.
