While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    What 100% New Energy Is

    What Does 100% Renewable Energy Really Mean?

    Joshua Rhodes, August 21, 2018 (Forbes)

    “…[The debate between the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), a conservative think tank, and the Mayor of Georgetown, TX,] has created a great case study on what it really means to be 100% renewable… Georgetown, TX (population: ~67,000) decided [to be one of the first municipalities] to obtain 100% of its electricity from renewable sources, namely wind and solar…Georgetown is a conservative town and] wasn’t overtly trying to go green, but that [contracting for solar and wind] was the cheapest and most secure option for local residents and businesses…[TPPF said the city is not 100% renewable because their electricity is through contracts, not] physical delivery of the electricity…

    [But the city paid for 100% renewable energy and it was delivered and] once it’s on the grid, it’s all the same at the wall socket…[This entails subsidies for wind and solar because the federal government projects, they and Texas provide billions in subsidies to the energy sector per year, with the bulk of it] going to oil and gas through favorable tax codes…[TPPF is wrong that variable renewables require one for one traditional generation backup because grid] operators have gotten very adept in forecasting solar and wind output, and continuously update their models…[Texas gets almost 20% of its electricity from wind without] an increased need for backup…[100% renewable energy would be a tall order but there] is considerable agreement among most engineers in this space that getting the grid to 80% green would be relatively easy…” click here for more
