Making Hydroelectric Power Renewable Again

It might surprise you to learn that hydroelectric power is not renewable energy. Well, it's not considered renewable in Oregon, anyway. Despite the fact that the engine of electricity production literally falls from the sky - at a higher than average rate for the United States.  Due to bureaucratic nonsense, hydroelecric power cannot be applied to the state's mandate to produce 25% of its power from renewable resources. Luckily, a plucky group of citizens has picked up on this anomaly and is attempting to correct the problem.

After 10 Years: Time for FutureGen to Retire

Ten years ago, the United States made an investment in a new environmental idea of clean coal through a cutting edge project known as FutureGen.  FutureGen, a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the FutureGen Industrial Alliance, was intended to construct a net zero-emission fossil-fueled power plant. To reduce carbon emissions, FutureGen uses carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology to inject carbon into geological formations rather than allowing emissions into the atmosphere.

North Carolina Supports Fracking

Energy costs in the US have been sky rocketing recently due to over-regulation by the federal government and the ever decreasing value of the dollar. Thankfully, there are options to lower the cost of energy such as fracking, the process of extracting natural gas from shale rock. More importantly, 75% of North Carolinian voters support increased access to domestic oil and natural gas resources including energy from shale.

To Frack or Not to Frack?

  America is feeling the pinch on our energy supply; from expensive water bills to cringe-worthy prices at the gas pump. That pinch may well be turned into a crushing squeeze, due to the Obama administration’s increased restrictions on oil importation, its moratorium on deep-water offshore drilling, and a host of strict regulations on energy companies.
