More than 94% of net new electricity capacity in the USA from renewables in 2017 – emissions down 1% (proving again we didnt need the costs of the Paris Accords to lower USA emissions. The market is doing it.)

I would like to see a follow up the aftermath of us pulling out of the PA. As in did the cuck cities in the USA follow though with their promise of supporting it and how much it costed them.

How much of that electricity is economically sustainable once the subsidy is cut?

We should either subsidize all energy sources, or we shouldn’t subsidize any at all. I prefer the latter.

I'm for the latter but fine with funding R&D for energy through federal research grants.

Not a fan of subsidizing actual energy production though.

All of it.

You can buy solar panels on ebay for 50 cents a watt at retail in low volume. Nothing can beat solar now. And it will get cheaper.

look where i am

Solar wont work here!

We should be pushing forward with Gen IV nuclear or even take the big step to fusion reactors. This fascination with windmills and solar panels is a huge step backwards. Sure it sounds good to the eco-nuts, but it is wasteful of land and resources. It'll finally be proven a mistake when you see the Chinese adopt a Gen IV design and start producing abundant power at 1 cent a KWH. Meanwhile we'll still be led around by the MSM and Hollywood know-nothings and their utopian fantasies.

Having solar power or small scale wind mill can be good for your own utilisation...you know when you invest your own money

No.

Decentralize power generation.

You can buy 320 watt panels on ebay now for 50 cents a watt.

Homes will need electric utilities like they need centralized air delivery.

Did you know in russia the old chernobyl plant grounds are being completely covered with solar panels and they will produce more power than the old nuke plant.

Nukes are done.

In order for renewables to take up more than like 25% of our energy needs large scale energy storage and a modern power grid need to be a thing. We have neither currently. Mulvaney had a ton of power grid money in his last presented suggestion for the infrastructure bill, a good step.

Actually i think the future is more home produced power. A gradual transition from ac aplliances to dc along with that. Home battery backup will soon be incredibly cheap with new graphite and solid state storage tech.

Hoping for something along those lines. Graphene is magic haha...it really all depends on battery advancements but there are some good signals coming out of that sector.

I drove by a good size solar field in Michigan and all the panels were completely covered in snow. Not generating any energy.
