Critical Commentary

Duke Energy, Dominion, and Southern Company all plan to trade electricity across state, which would make energy costs lower. This plan would also improve reliance on non-carbon-emitting power sources. The article goes into more details about the way energy is distributed across the United States and across different states. Beyond the more technical explanation of energy distribution, the article also envisions voluntary participation in 15 minute energy exchanges, important point to focus on are the article's delineation on grid imbalances and connections made to leaving families vulnerable to said imbalances. The problem with the foregoing plan, as noted by legal representatives is that utilities have a history of calling out plans for clean energy but never truly coming through with their promises.
