“Renewable energy can

only compete with base-

load energy (coal, nuclear

and natural gas) because

of the massive subsidies

that they get from the fed-

eral tax code. Baseload

power is something that runs 24 hours a

day, seven days a week, 365 days of the

year. Renewable energy is only available

a portion of the time, about one-third of

the time. When you measure the price of

electricity in cents per BTU, coal is the

lowest. If you took away all the subsidies,

coal could compete and coal will com-

“If natural gas is proving no pana-

cea and grid-scale energy storage is

best suited for a few hours of backup,

then it would seem prudent to maintain

coal generation, the fuel-secure, base-

load foundation of the grid. The path we

are charging down is leaving regulators

scratching their heads wondering just

how regional grids haven’t collapsed.

Eventually, our luck is going to run out.

There will be no more rabbits to pull out

of hats. Are we ready to reckon with the
