Trio of federal energy storage bills avoid tax credits | Utility Dive
One more step in the natural gas takeover of our electricity supplies. Without Storage, the only option for reliability is natural gas.
Renewable Energy has been crafted over 4 decades to make sure our move to clean energy does not threaten petroleum sales. This throws a giant log in the road for the biggest threat to natural gas sales.
Renewable energy destabilizes our electricity system, and natural gas is the planned replacement for coal and has its sights set on nuclear.
Now that this long term strategy is inevitable, they want to shut off competition in the “reliability” market. Energy storage will provide reliable energy without as much gas.
Therefore, we can’t give that any breathing room.
No tax credits for energy storage effectively makes sure that a “renewable energy future” will be 100% dependent on natural gas to fill in the gaps.
