The Wall Street Journal recently published a column on “the west’s climate policy debacle,” explaining how “utopian energy dreams are doing great economic and security damage." The cause? The “West’s utopian dream to punish fossil fuels and sprint to a world driven solely by renewable energy.”
The author states that “it’s time for political leaders to recognize this manifest debacle and admit that, short of a technological breakthrough, the world will need an ample supply of carbon fuel for decades to remain prosperous and free.”
This aligns with PPEC’s and larger, Ohio's Electric Cooperatives', “all-of-the-above” energy policy, utilizing a mix of generation resources including coal, gas, wind, solar, biomass fuels, and more.
That said, PPEC is also currently offering subscriptions to 319 new community OurSolar panels in an effort to make solar energy more affordable and accessible to all members.
