A rule that governs one of New England’s electricity markets, the Minimum Offer Price Rule, has been extended for two years. Here’s why that’s a bad deal for New Englanders.
Winter snow and ice bring out Big Gas’s fearmongers. Why is the region’s electric grid operator among them?
A misleading letter peddled by Big Oil echos the anti-clean energy rhetoric of a supposedly credible source: ISO-New England.
Our regional electricity grid operator, ISO-New England, must stop supporting the dirty fossil fuels at the root of the climate crisis.
Every winter the gas industry tries to scare us, claiming there isn’t enough gas during cold snaps to heat and power our homes. Their solution? More fracked gas and new, expensive gas pipelines. But we don’t have to buy into their propaganda. We have all the power we need without expensive new pipelines.
In spite of its critics, clean, renewable energy continues to come down in price and become better able to handle the demands of our electricity grid.
The ISO’s Forward Capacity Auction 13, conducted on Monday, February 4, 2019, showed once again – strongly and unequivocally – that the proposed Invenergy fracked gas and diesel oil power plant is not needed.
From climate to transit, from your tap water to the ocean, and from Maine to Connecticut, CLF and New England are poised to make progress where governments falter. Turn Off the Gas Winter Snow and Ice Bring Out Big Gas’s Fearmongers. Why is the Region’s Electric Grid Operator among Them? Progress Report Clear Skies Ahead… Continue reading Conservation Matters Winter 2019
April 21, 2018 was an historic date for the New England power grid: It was the first time that mid-day peak energy demand from the power grid was lower than at the lowest point overnight. The reason for this historic first is the effectiveness of energy efficiency and the combined output of 130,000 small, medium,… Continue reading April 21, 2018: Renewable Energy Makes History in New England
New analysis from the regional grid operator, ISO New England (ISO), confirms what CLF and other experts have been saying for some time: New England doesn’t need expensive natural gas pipelines to keep the lights on and our homes warm even during our harshest winters. In fact, thanks to the growth of clean, renewable energy,… Continue reading Clean Renewable Energy Is the Key to a Resilient Electric Grid in New England
