Excellent rebuttal to the Journal's nonsense. Thanks for taking the time to lay this out so clearly.

Tom

Fantastic piece of writing. Imagine if everybody had a basic understanding of energy (it wouldn't take much) and the journalists didn't write such crap - we might actually make some progress.

Ellen Perry

Thanks so much for your analysis. I work as a Field Energy Advisor for a major solar company in SCE territory. For the last 2 days I have been getting flack from potential customers about this issue. I didn't know where it was coming from. Now I do. Thanks for giving me some facts to refute the naysayers.

Jane Twitmyer

Thank you for writing this clear rebuttal.

And I would love to hear your reaction to the new report put out by the modeled grid integration study from the University of DE. According to the analysis the way to avoid reliability problems with a high level of grid renewables is to oversize the renewables, not the baseload.

The report claims ... with a variety of renewable resources the grid can accomodate 90+% renewable with very little storage and great reliability!
