NYC’s Possible Sooner Blackouts: Blaming the State’s Controversial Green Agenda

Uh-oh: New York may soon experience blackouts due to the state’s overly ambitious green agenda.

The New York Independent System Operator, responsible for overseeing the grid, has just announced that the city could face power shortages as early as 2025 if the planned phase-out of natural-gas-fired “peaker” power plants continues.

These peaker plants are expected to be replaced by renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric plants upstate.

However, there may be delays in the availability of these alternative energy sources, and bottlenecks in the transmission network could prevent the power from reaching New York City.

For example, the Champlain Hudson Power Express transmission line, which is supposed to bring hydro power from northern Quebec to the city starting in 2026, is facing construction delays.

The closure of these peaker plants is part of the state’s unreal climate change plans, which will have minimal impact on the climate but will greatly inconvenience New Yorkers.

By 2040, all of the state’s electricity will be prohibited from coming from carbon-emitting plants, even if there aren’t sufficient alternative sources to replace them.

This is a recipe for disaster.

However, Governor Kathy Hochul and the Legislature refuse to halt these plans.

In fact, they are determined to further pursue climate activism, disregarding the well-being of their constituents.

It’s advisable for these constituents to keep some candles on hand.
