That's No Deal

from TPPF,

What to Know: Texas cities like Georgetown, San Antonio and Austin, which committed to 100 percent renewable energy, are seeing similar results—higher electricity bills, and an undeniable reliance on non-renewable sources to make up for the unreliability of wind and solar power. The TPPF Take: It wasn’t supposed to be this way; renewable energy has failed to live up to its promises. “Georgetown’s electric bills went up as more wind and solar power displaced cheaper natural gas in the power portfolio of the Georgetown’s municipal utility,” says TPPF’s Chuck DeVore. “Politicians scrambled for cover. And the bloom came off Georgetown’s renewable rose. Now they’re trying to figure out how to unwind the renewable mess they and their predecessors voted themselves into.”
