Perry's grid study calls for easing pollution rules on power plants
from Inside Climate News
A rush study on the reliability of the nation's electric grid ordered by Secretary of Energy Rick Perry concedes that the rapid increase of clean, cheap solar and wind power hasn't thrown the power network out of kilter. Even so, the report puts the Trump administration's thumb on the policy scales, recommending easing pollution regulations and changing rules for pricing of electricity, along with other steps intended to protect the beleaguered coal industry's historical role as the foundation of the entire grid.
