It's just a myth!
Oil and Gas opponents tout "Green Energy" as a savior to the environment and a boon to our quality of life.
1…You need a continuous source of energy 24/7 to deliver to customer...which green projects can't deliver. So you still need a power plant that runs 24/7.
2…You need a massive amount of land for green projects that ruin the delicate ecology displacing and killing protected animal life.
3…All green projects are not cost efficient so cost will go up hurting the elderly on fixed incomes and low income families the most.
Let's use Martin Drake Power Plant that generates 254 MW and sits on 66 acres, as an example of how foolish the Green Energy people are.
Here are the following green energy solutions to replacing that coal fired power plant…
• Parabolic Solar Thermal Collectors (Victorville CA)…(250 acres = 50 mw)…You need 1,250 acres to replace the power plant.
• Solar Heliostat Mirrors…(Crescent Dunes, Tonopah, NV, 1,600 acres = 110 mw)…You need 2,309 acres to replace the power plant.
• Photovoltaic Solar Panels…at Sunshare Colorado Springs…(2.5 acres = 575 KW)….You need 1,10435 acres to replace the power plant.
• Wind Turbines…(Black Fork Wind Farm, Ohio, 46,000 acres = 228 mw)…You need 46,668 acres to replace the power plant.
The Greenies want to cover up our beautiful land for idealogical reasons not based in fact. Their actions will cost you more money, ruin our beautiful ecology and kill habitats for animals.
