Biden’s Green Agenda Threatens Power Grid

via 60 Minutes

The North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) has warned of an elevated risk of blackouts in over half of the U.S. this winter due to increased demand, power generation shortfalls, and potential fuel delivery challenges.

The Biden administration’s energy policies have been highlighted as a major threat to the power grid.

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) cited factors such as rising electricity demand, reduced generation, and permitting delays as contributors to the risk. (Trending: Donald Trump Gets Great News)

NRECA criticized the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed power plant rule, arguing it could threaten electric reliability and affordability, as it utilizes “unproven technologies and unrealistic compliance timelines” and “threatens electric reliability and affordability for every American.”

The EPA defended its new carbon pollution standards, emphasizing their role in addressing the climate crisis and protecting public health.

“By proposing new standards for fossil fuel-fired power plants, EPA is delivering on its mission to reduce harmful pollution that threatens people’s health and well-being,” EPA Administrator Michael Regan said.

“EPA’s proposal relies on proven, readily available technologies to limit carbon pollution and seizes the momentum already underway in the power sector to move toward a cleaner future.”

The NRECA labeled current federal energy policies as “reckless and irresponsible,” emphasizing the dangers of a mismanaged energy transition.

“The industry can’t be any clearer about the escalating dangers posed by a mismanaged energy transition,” NRECA stated.

“Just as the grid is in desperate need of policy support, policymakers are ignoring the warning signs of eroding reliability and continuing to push reckless and irresponsible policies forward.”
