The U.S. vs. Atlantic fisheries

The Atlantic coast contains some of the most productive fisheries in the world. BOEM is supposed to work with fisheries interests to ensure offshore wind development does not adversely affect habitat and the livelihood of fishermen. In fact, in December of last year, the Department of the Interior issued a detailed memo stating that the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act prohibits offshore wind approvals if a project would interfere with fishing. But just a few weeks ago, the administration reversed those findings.

New Jersey looks to rejoin regional cap-and-trade program

But many business groups oppose reentering RGGI at all. Tony Bawidamann, vice president of government affairs at the New Jersey Business and Industry Association, said the cap-and-trade program amounts to a tax on businesses that will be passed on to consumers in the form of higher energy costs. “This makes us less competitive in the region because the ratepayer is going to be paying more and more for energy use,” Bawidamann said. ...“It’s a costly state to live in, and this makes it even more costly,” he said.

High court will decide state power plant subsidies row

“The New Jersey and Maryland programs tie guaranteed payments under state law to the wholesale rate under the PJM auction and to the generators’ participating in and clearing the PJM auction,” the brief stated. “State-selected generators can then bid into the auction market at a price that does not accurately reflect their costs, thereby disrupting the auction’s price signals that are designed to incentivize new generation.” ...The cases are Hughes et al. v. PPL EnergyPlus LLC et al., case number 14-614 and CPV Maryland LLC v. PPL EnergyPlus LLC et al., case number 14-623, in the Supreme Court of the United States.

State may start funding energy-storage projects for solar and wind

Because the sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow, energy storage is viewed as key to promoting cleaner ways of producing electricity. Energy storage is still under development. Given the intermittent nature of solar and wind, it is viewed as crucial to making clean energy competitive with conventional technologies like natural gas and coal-fired plants.

Destroying nature in order to save it

"This used to be inundated with wildlife," Lourenco said. "There were deer, woodchuck, foxes ... " Soon, this will all be fenced off behind a chain-link wall. The natural area to be destroyed will total 45 acres. Who is responsible for this environmental disaster? You can blame this one on the tree-huggers themselves. All of this acreage will be sacrificed for so-called "green energy."

Christie's got a Dutch treat for utility customers

Bill Heller told me the windmill in question would be 75 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty. I could see the statue looming on the other side of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. And if you can see the statue from Union Beach, that means this windmill would be visible from most of the New York Bay. ...It's a symbol the residents don't want, said Borough Councilman Lou Andreuzzi.
