CPS Energy Launches Global FlexPOWER BundleSM Request For Proposal to Bring Cleaner, Greener Energy to San Antonio, Texas
add up to 900 MW of solar, 50 MW of energy storage and 500 MW of firming capacity as part of the utility’s new FlexPOWER BundleSM initiative Can you share any insights into why these specific capacities were chosen? I'd love to hear more about the long-term plan-- is this just the beginning?
Foremost among the challenges is that energy efficiency is largely invisible. We undertake programs and policies that lead to the avoidance of something (energy use), rather than the creation. Economic stimulus efforts are often geared towards large scale, ‘shovel ready’ infrastructure projects that not only create immediate job impacts but are also highly visible.
Matt you are 100% correct. The loss of energy over distance can be upwards of 40%, that means that we need to produce MORE power to make up that loss do to thermodynamics. Decentrailized Energy Resources (DER) actually increase the effiencty of energy produced by keeping all power local. We generate, transport, consume, and store local. This alone will cut down the power produced...
