Tom Schatz: An Environmental Waste of Breath

Colorado Energy News - Mon, 09/22/2014 - 07:04

Environmental issues have been front and center in Colorado this year. No wonder: The state’s natural beauty is perhaps its greatest treasure. As I rode the gondola to the top of Thunderhead last night, I knew I was the latest visitor to the Yampa Valley to reach this realization. Yet in the midst of the discussions about fracking, the future of the coal industry, balancing preservation with development and other important issues, one topic has remained relatively hidden: renewable electricity standards.

There are 30 states with mandatory RES laws already on the books; the federal government has not yet established a national standard. Under the state laws, energy users are forced to pay for a certain percentage of renewable resources, regardless of cost or other considerations. Mounting evidence shows that these policies have been a colossal failure.

Nonetheless, some legislators want to lead the fight to establish a national 25 percent renewable energy standard, whether or not a state wants to adopt such a policy or raise its existing RES to that level. MORE …
