NRDC: Grid Reliability During Cold Snap Refutes Need For Coal 'Bailout' - #Solar Industry

More coal plants are running because we need more power from all sources to meet higher demand during extreme conditions. This is not breaking news. We have more than enough power to meet demand from all sources, even during frigid weather. Power plant and grid operators learned from the 2014 polar vortex and know more about how to keep plants from freezing in frigid temperatures, and their efforts are paying off. The Northeast, the region being hit hardest by the continuing cold, is operating quite well with very little coal-fired electricity. While an increase in fuel oil use highlights the environmental benefits that could be gained by more energy efficiency, energy storage, and demand response (customer-driven reductions in electricity consumption), coal is plainly not the answer to reducing pollution from oil. Wind and solar power are contributing more to our electric...
