DC: “Energy Secretary Rick Perry ordered a study Friday examining to what extent solar and wind power are hurting what the Trump administration considers reliable forms of coal power. Perry, a Texas Republican who served as governor of an energy-rich state, wants the Energy Department to undergo a 60-day review of the energy grid to determine if green energy subsidies are hurting more reliable forms of energy like natural gas and coal.”
Perry spoke about the America’s abundance of coal, gas, and other reliable resources which are forced to compete with wind and solar. That same competition in other countries has increased prices for reliable energy.
“Germany and Australia’s reliance on green energy subsidies have caused damage to their grids. Germany’s subsidies for green energy, for instance, have sharply increased power prices in the country, with the average German paying 39 cents per kilowatt-hour for electricity.” That’s 4 times our price.
What about all of that taxpayer money used to fund those green companies in America which have since gone out of business?
Last month Pres Trump created 11,000 jobs in the coal industry.
