Duke halts coal burning

29 Aug

Charlotte, North Carolina-based Duke Energy says it will retire the last two coal-fired units Sept. 1 at the New Richmond, Ohio, plant.  The utility says it will stop burning coal at a southwest Ohio power plant that was the site of a recent oil spill into the Ohio River.

Duke says increasingly stringent federal regulations on power plant emissions are behind the decision. It had said earlier it would retire all coal-fired units there by January 2015.

I am getting the same thing from Texas based utility companies.  Not to mention utility companies from all over the country.  Also, that they will play the game that the Feds are forcing on them.  The Feds, and their tyrannical EPA, will soon be eating their own words.  But this will cost the consumer (appliance) damages due to the expected rolling brown/blackout surges and drop offs, and an average household utility bill of nearly $1,000 per month.

Also, don’t forget that California gets a tremendous amount of their electricity from the Great State of Texas.  Do you really think those Texas based companies are going to make their neighbors and their own families suffer, just so they can provide power to the Mexican and Liberal hoards?  The very people who have caused this next crisis. 

It’s a good thing that more than half of California just came from such a state. 

But the queers?  That’s a whole different story…  How will they be able to re-charge their vibrators?

    Don’t worry, Washington DC will have plenty of electricity….

    Sorry, my sarc lock key was on.

    Might solar panels be the next “Microsoft” for investors?

      That would seem a distinct possibility Roger. We are soon going to add to ours.

      Compared to our requirements, solar is just a pig in a blanket. Besides, that would only get us to $1,500 per household, per month.

        Better to have constant A/C or heat rather than intermittent!

        Solar doesn’t seem to scale up, but for a home it can keep essential systems running during brown/black outs. Systems like a freezer and security cams.

          The system here on the farm is a 7000 watt system. Of course we will scale back on usage but it will run what we have identified.

          How hard is solar to maintain?

          Not hard, if easily accessible. Buy plenty of spare parts. Just in case.

    The EPA should be made to pay for this travesty. When people all across the country can not pay these high bills and power is shut off, the regime will step in like Mighty Mouse…”Here I come to save the day”.

    All the sheeple will croon about their savior giving them the money to pay their utility bills, never considering for even a second where this money is coming from. And certainly not caring, after all, isn’t this what “government” is supposed to do?!

    Yep, the EPA MUST be made to pay for this travesty.

    Roger solar systems for the most part are easily maintained. Primarily, protecting the delicate parts (the inverter for instance) from the elements is a must and easily done. Other wise it is low maintenance. As Soffitrat says, keep spare parts on hand.

      Cute song.

      Disgusting, but cute…

      You are right. This idiot sews discord and death for Americans with this type of bullshit, but cares nothing for their very lives. When all is said and done (and this fool is dead), we will look back and realize that it was all avoidable. Our lack of education, knowledge (media), leadership, and courage enabled the mass die-off that took place.

      At the very least, “the enemy of my enemy, is my friend”. I do not doubt Israeli interference in our internal affairs. But then, what country fighting for its survival would not do the same?

    Having lived up there, I am well familiar with the area. Great whitetail hunting out there (and the EPA claims environmental issues, pshaw). They are retiring a plant, but killing a town. The town of Richmond is mostly those that work the plant or in support of, as in teachers, grocers, etc. lose the plant, bu-bye to town

      “…lose the plant, bu-bye to town.”

      Exactly right Dio. Another example of “The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis” at work. Destroy the infrastructure a little at a time thus…FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA.

      The same thing is going to happen here as well. You know this place. You know the coal (strip mining) mines. You know the impact that this will have when SWEPCO and Luminant close down their plants. It will not happen everywhere, but the plan is to shut down at least one (of normally three) units at each plant. This will put an extreme burden on the remaining units and NOT be enough to feed the big cities. I almost feel sorry for California. Those people are about to learn quickly how much even they depend on electricity and if our costs are going to soar, just think what this is going to be like for those Progressives and Mexicans.

        “…just think what this is going to be like for those Progressives and Mexicans.”

        They will probably get a subsidy from the Kenyan/Congress to pay their utility bills. Why not, we foot the bill for everything else they have?
