Richard, with the average capacity factor of wind and solar hovering around 20% in New York, NYISO would have to build five times as much capacity to replace the carbon-free energy of plants like Indian Point, which is scheduled to close next month.

I mean, everybody needs to make a buck. But I thought investment which comes at the expense of electricity customers might offer something in return; that the goal was to lower carbon emissions, not sell more natural gas (?).
