Big offshore wind tech advance! Floating wind farms just became a serious business. Floating wind farm allows wind generation in waters too deep for building to sea floor or in about 80% of offshore resource. Tech developed by Norwegian Big oil. via

Gas capacity is declining substantially in CA. CA is about 10 years ahead of most states but by 2030 gas capacity will be declining in 20 or more states.

P.S., this brief story helps explain why I keep coming back to empowering consumers with choice. 67 percent of companies survey said they are feeling pressure from THEIR OWN CUSTOMERS to power their operations with more clean energy.

Oil is globally priced despite huge US production increase. WTI Rose 10% & Brent 5% last week. Oil markets are underestimating the impact of another flare-up in US-Iran tensions, analysts warn

Important thread! Renewable energy & EV booms are happening not because of increasing oil & gas costs & prices but despite falling costs & low prices. Then oil & gas is subsidized by carbon price of zero in most of USA.

Also it goes into operation in 2022. Three years from contract award to operation.

Astounding price. 5 US cents / kwh, for a capacity factor likely > 50%. This is just over half the price that the IEA thought offshore wind reach by *2050* just a couple years ago. Offshore wind is on path to be both cheaper and higher capacity factor than onshore.

France Gets 600 MW offshore wind farm for 44 Euros/MWh. 12 & 13 MW Turbines Used. France will build 1 GW of offshore wind every year through 2028.

TX replaced utility default supply with provider of last resort service POLR that is not provided by utility but competitors, is intended to be temporary (See ). Some % is on POLR but about 75% served by other competitors.

Understood. No state with just wholesale competition, which formally is national policy, and wholesale markets certainly exist in all lower 48 states, stops captured ratepayers from paying for generation boondoggles. Only ending monopoly at retail level structurally fixes that.

Default, billing, metering, switch processing are among the policies that determine how many consumers leave utility supply and how many competitors enter market. TX has basically 100% shopping by residential customers, offers great shopping guides, and scorecards competitors.

How is shopping for electricity more difficult than shopping for oil heat, automotive repairs, refrigerators, home repairs, car or home insurance, new appliances, new car? I really don't get it. Should we have the appliance, auto, insurance monopolies? Of course not.

No. Only retail competition ends rate basing generation for retail customers. Without retail competition, retail customers are captured and they pay for generation boondoggles. Only ending retail generation monopolies protects customers from monopoly generation abuse.

Ask climate hawks who are captives of utilities burning coal or gas if they would like to buy renewables. I bought 100% wind starting in 1999. I can go on. Generation monopolies exploit residential consumers as much as or more than larger consumers.

Ask South Carolina's captured ratepayers paying more than $8 billion for boondoggles & getting no power whetherhypothesis is correct. Or Mississippi's captured ratepayers paying couple billion for boondoggle. Or Georgia's captured ratepayers paying $14 billion more than budgeted.

How much does transmission add to the cost of generation? Varies a bit. But often about 10%-20%. It is cheap with or without transmission. Siting transmission is the problem.

Blue States reduced coal to nearly nothing. Coal is low-hanging fruit for climate action. Blue states now wage war against gas & oil. That's what "fossil fuels" means in Blue states. More difficult tasks than eliminating coal but today's technology allows big oil/gas cuts.
