DOE: If it weren’t for coal-fired electricity plants, the Northeast would have blacked-out during recent bomb-cyclonePosted: March 29, 2018 Filed under: Cyclones, Extreme Weather, Failed Green Schemes, Fossil Fuels, Green Energy, Renewables, Solar, Unreliables, Wind Farms | Tags: Bomb Cyclone, Climate Change, coal, coal fired power, Energy, Fossil Fuels, global cooling, Global Warming, Natural Gas, nature, New England, Renewable energy, Russia, solar, Solar panels, unreliables, Weather, wind, Winter Leave a comment
“New England was so desperate for natural gas to keep the heat on it took two shipments containing liquefied natural gas from Russia.”
OHH the delicious irony! The increased reliance on unreliables – wind and solar – by global warming obsessed progressive state governments is forcing them, in periods of extreme cold, to rely on fossil fuels (gas) from….”Russia, Russia, Russia”! LoL 😂
From the “when the going gets tough, renewables can’t cut it” department. Wind power generation actually dropped 5% during this period

From the Daily Caller: Coal-fired power plants kept the lights on for millions of Americans during January’s bomb cyclone, according to an Energy Department report warning future plant retirements could imperil grid security.
Energy analysts at DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory found that coal power kept the lights on for millions of Americans during the bomb cyclone that pummeled the eastern U.S. from late December to early January.
NETL analysts found that coal plants made up most of the incremental power utilities relied on to keep electricity flowing during the cold snap. Nuclear and oil power plants played a big role, NETL…
