Why Rick Perry's Proposed Subsidies for Coal Fail Economics 101 15.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Where do you turn for news and analysis you can rely on? If the answer is Truthout, then please support our mission by making a tax-deductible donation! In a controversial proposal, Energy Secretary Rick Perry has asked federal regulators to effectively subsidize coal and nuclear power plants at ratepayers' expense. Under Perry's  proposal , plants that operate in deregulated electricity markets -- where generators normally compete to provide power at the lowest cost -- would be guaranteed positive profits so long as they stockpile 90 days' worth of fuel on site.  To rationalize this proposal, which a former Republican member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has dubbed " the antithesis of good economics ," Secretary Perry points to uncompensated benefits generated by coal and nuclear plants. As energy economists, when we think about coal-fired electricity generation, what usually comes to mind are unaccounted-for costs -- not benefits. This emerging pro-coal narrative is worth ...

Nuclear Power Plants Should Be Closed and Autopsied, Not Resuscitated 12.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
In Georgia, the country's only new nuclear power project needs $12 billion in federal loan guarantees to survive. Existing nuclear plants are also clamoring for subsidies to avoid closure. But it's time to gain some real insight into the safety risks posed by the reactors that are still running. (Photo: Tony Webster ) The Trump administration recently announced another desperate push to prop up the only new US nuclear power plant construction project still in play -- at Plant Vogtle, Georgia. But the reality for nuclear power is that it is on a downward slide toward extinction. US Energy Secretary Rick Perry recently awarded an additional $3.7 billion in federal loan guarantees to the over-budget and behind schedule project at Vogtle -- on top of the $8.3 billion in subsidies the project has already received. Six US reactors -- at five sites -- have closed since 2013 . Seven more remain on target to close within the next eight years, some of them as soon as 2019. A handful more had announced planned ...
