Electric markets rely on a variety of resources to deliver cheap, reliable power to consumers, including renewables and demand-side resources like demand response.
Unreliable Arguments Against Renewables
- 1) Electric markets are up to the task of providing affordable and reliable power when people need it.
- 2) Renewable energy resources like wind and solar need not threaten electric reliability and can save consumers money overall.
- 3) Subsidies for all energy sources, including renewables, should be opposed, but this is no reason to be against renewable energy in general.
