  • Well reasoned article that does compare some costs of environmental repair (for example, restoring native fish populations) against benefits that are marginal at best. Not to mention, these plants, lacking economies of scale, are tremendously expensive on a per-unit-of-energy-produced basis.

  • It’s very hard to argue with the point that today’s highly-efficient CCGTs with heat rates in the 7,000-8,000 range are capable of being designated as base load resources. Whether they actually operate as base load resources or intermediate resources depends on the remaining generation mix, but there’s

    It’s very hard to argue with the point that today’s highly-efficient CCGTs with heat rates in the 7,000-8,000 range are capable of being designated as base load resources. Whether they actually operate as base load resources or intermediate resources depends on the remaining generation mix, but there’s no doubt they can and increasingly will serve as base load resources.
