#coal Plants: Direct Subsidies?

Views: 402
Rick Perry’s, Energy Department, wants,
. . . direct subsidies, for coal-fired power plants.

Perry has filed a,
. . . Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR), under the
. . . Federal Power Act, directing the
. . . Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to
. . . “accurately price generation resources necessary to
. . . maintain reliability, and resiliency” and provide for
. . . “recovery of costs of fuel-secure generation units,
. . . frequently relied upon to make our grid,
. . . reliable and resilient.”

The NOPR does not mention specific generation technologies,
. . . but would give immediate assistance to:
. . . . . . coal,
. . . . . . nuclear, and
. . . . . . hydroelectric generators,
. . . which all have multi-day fuel supplies onsite.

Does Puerto Rico,
. . . have multi-day fuel supplies onsite?
