Goodbye to Arguments Against Renewables?

New Studies Find them as Reliable and Cheap as Fossils. Can renewables cost less than fossil fuel generation? And are they as reliable? It appears so, especially when they are coupled with a suite of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as virtual power plants and demand response. New reports by Energy Innovation Policy and Technology and the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) lay out the argument. In the The Coal-Cost Crossover, Energy Innovation partnered with Vibrant Clean Energy to create data about coal, wind and solar costs. The report compares coal plants’ marginal cost of energy to the lowest levelized cost of energy for wind or solar resources located near the plant. Costs for most coal plants ranged between $33–111/MWh. Costs in 2018 for solar were between $28-52/MWh. “We simply took all the annual generation in MWh from the coal plant and examined how much it would cost to build local wind or solar resources to replace that energy,” said Mike O’Boyle, Energy Innovation’s director of electricity policy.

Can you rely on Eskom?

Rolling blackouts regularly sweeps across the country. And Eskom slips into load shedding at any time and has become to norm. We must accept that Eskom cannot currently and may not in future generate and supply power as we know it, and why should you be reliant or trust Eskom? With that said, the time has come to take control of your power costs and security of energy supply for your home and business as the world is fast moving away from outdated methods of energy generation, it’s time we move along with the world if we are to stay relevant and in touch with the industrialized world. Developed countries and their citizens are rapidly finding alternate ways of securing sustainable, cleaner and cheaper sources of Energy supply.Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post.

Do you have alternative’s?

No doubt you have! and one of the very best sustainable, cleaner and cheaper solutions is solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation. But before you make any big decisions, there’s some very important information that you need to know and consider (are you receiving the best advice?) which will assist you in making an informed and correct decision.
