Re: Don’t Sass Me!

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler was already facing a backlash from fellow Republicans after breaking with most of her party and voting to impeach former President Donald Trump. Then she ignited national news — and briefly scrambled the end of the Senate impeachment trial — with an explosive account...

Re: Thank you coal!

This would have been very bad. Would have likely resulted in a complete blackout in ERCOT. Would have taken days or even weeks to get power back everywhere. And to be clear this isn't a failure of nuclear power - it was too much load and not enough generation to cover it. The plant's safety feature...

Re: Thank you coal!

What a crazy week it was. We operate in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) energy market. SPP covers 14 states from North Dakota to the Texas panhandle. On a typical day prices for energy would be maybe 2-2.5 cents per kWh. On a hot day or cold day that might jump up to an average of 5-6 cents per kWh....

Re: Thank you coal!

Starting to see some reports that Texas grid operator ERCOT asked the Biden admin for waivers from some environmental rules to increase generation during the power crisis and they were denied. Remains to be seen if this is true but is a bad look for Biden's EPA if it is.

Re: Thank you coal!

My response is good, keep having them unable to compete with renewable energies until fossil fuels are a thing of the past. Subsidize them more until renewables overwhelm the fossil fuel industry and end it once and for all. That's what many are voting for so that's what we expect from our governme...

Re: Thank you coal!

What's the power grid going to be like when we have 100,000,000 electric cars plugged in at night. This is the hidden tax that is coming. The electric distribution system infrastructure in place cannot handle one or two electric vehicles charging at every house. Rates will have to go up pay for the...

Re: Thank you coal!

^No surprise. As explained multiple times in this thread, blaming wind energy in this crisis is such a red herring. The entire system failed, and last I read wind capacity was down 25%, coal and nuclear at 30%, and natural gas at 40%. You simply have to winterize equipment before cold-weather event...

Re: Thank you coal!

Solar battery banks from good contractors are typically sized for 2-3 days of back-up energy at minimal load output. Of course the user needs to understand they can't be using the energy like it's a normal day. But in an emergency, the point isn't to heat your home to a comfortable level. Hell, it ...

Before global warming was imagined, we would go a week with -20 for the high, and no talk of power outages. Something change over the years. Aging infrastructure and decades-long tax cuts. Some states and localities decided to increasingly privatize utilities to offset the lack of incoming money, b...

Why didn’t he use the timeouts when SDSU had it 1st and goal from the one with about 2 minutes left?
Because Mark Farley is an idiot.
