New Study Says Less Diverse Electric Grid Will Result in Higher Bills

Conflicting federal and state policies are forcing less fuel diversity in the U.S. power grid, a trend that will raise the cost and variability of consumers’ power bills and create negative impacts that could ripple through the U.S. economy, according to a new study by IHS Markit. The study also finds that some subsidies for zero-carbon wind and solar generation may have the unintended consequence of causing carbon emissions to increase as nuclear plants are forced to close.

Great article.  The ability to provide power 24/7 with nuclear power versus the inability of wind and solar to do the same is the key point.  Hopefully common sense 24/7 nuclear power versus feel good power of wind and solar that can not be counted on 24/7 will be a driver for nuclear power.
