    Biden energy policy could lead to energy grid blackouts this summer

    May 25, 2022 - Prairie Pundit



      Summer heat, shuttered power plants, and a clogged supply chain are creating a strain on the U.S electric grid, which regulators say could mean blackouts from the Great Lakes to the west coast over the summer.

      This is according to the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), a regulatory body that monitors electric grid stability.

      “It’s a pretty sobering report, and it’s clear the risks are spreading,” John Moura, director of reliability assessment and performance analysis, said in a press briefing, calling it “our most cautionary tale.”

      Bloomberg claimed in its reporting on the NERC’s report that climate change is partly responsible without alluding to Joe Biden’s energy policies that have shut down domestic resources, but it did admit that his policies do not align with reality.

      “But the fight against global warming poses its own risks as older coal-fired plants close faster than wind farms, solar facilities and batteries can replace them,” Bloomberg reported.

      “The pace of our grid transformation is out of sync,” Moura said.


      This looks like another example of Biden's unrealistic "transition" to nonexistent or inadequate energy resources. He is doing the same thing with transportation making it hard for people to afford to go to work or deliver goods and sevices.
