Thoughts - musings on solar panels and renewable energy

This page is for thoughts and ideas about solar and the environment in general.  I'm passionate about solar and think and read about it daily.  This will be a space for these thoughts.

Congress investigates Tri-State

Matt Helms

Tri-State, the electrical supplier for the Durango area, is under investigation by congress for funding a lobbying group that is trying to weaken the Clean Air Act. I always suspected that Tri-state was not pro-solar, but this confirms my suspicions. It isn’t surprising since Tri-state has a lot of capital invested in coal burning power plants, but its a shame that they are using rate payer funds (i.e. your money if you live in the Durango area or anywhere in southwest Colorado) to undermine environmental protections instead of investing the money in cheaper, renewable energy projects such as wind and solar. I guess they’re just going to dig in their heals and get drug screaming into the future. Someone should sit down with them and explain what the term ‘sunk cost’ means…and maybe the word ‘ethical’.
