    Texas Shifts Love To Wind From Coal

    Wind power to overtake coal power in Texas

    John Sciliano, October 13, 2017 (Washington Examiner)

    “Wind energy is expected to overtake coal in Texas after [the] news that two large coal-fired power plants are set to close in the next year…The utility firm Luminant announced that it would close the Sandow Power Plant and the Big Brown Power Plant in early 2018. The power plants comprise 2,300 megawatts of electricity, which means 2.1 million homes in the Lone Star State will no longer be powered by coal…That gap in electricity generation is projected to be filled by wind farms in the Texas energy grid known as ERCOT, according to an analysis issued by the University of Texas at Austin's Energy Institute…The total amount of wind energy will reach 24,400 megawatts and coal shrinks to 20,370 megawatts, according to the university…The coal plant announcements came as former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, now President Trump's energy secretary, is pushing ahead with a controversial electricity market plan to prop up coal and nuclear plants that are struggling to remain economically competitive…” click here for more
