EPA’s Power Grid Assumptions Are Disconnected From Reality

We have come to expect that the EPA and a truckload of other such institutions live in a dream world and that much of what they say must be taken with a truckload of salt. But they are not alone. Today I heard a venerable O&G podcast and heard that wind is unsubsidized in Texas. As if free grid balancing services and preferential grid access would not be subsidies. It’s being paid for by ratepayers, not by those getting the benefit. There is a lot of political posturing and hooting outside politics as well.
