California’s biggest utilities are losing their monopolies ­— is that a good thing? 

https://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/9272166-181/californias-biggest-utilities-are-losing

EXCERPT:

But the erosion of California’s century-old utility monopolies has alarmed some regulators. They worry that without new safeguards, the shift from a handful of big utilities to a decentralized system with dozens of energy providers could have unintended consequences – possibly including a repeat of the state’s early-2000s energy crisis, when a failed experiment in deregulation led to rolling power outages and ballooning electricity costs.

One of the leading community choice skeptics is Michael Picker, president of the California Public Utilities Commission and a former renewable energy adviser to then-Gov. Jerry Brown. Picker has spearheaded a series of reports outlining potential risks posed by the rise of alternatives to the big utilities, not just CCAs but also rooftop solar, home battery systems and companies buying energy through a limited competitive market.

EXCERPT:

For example, the so-called “rain tax,” as Republicans dubbed it, permits counties, municipalities and certain authorities to establish stormwater utilities and related fees and other charges.

An advocacy group called New Jersey Future said the bill, which was approved by both houses of the Legislature, “provides municipalities, counties, utilities and authorities with a long-needed tool to manage flooding and dirty runoff from rainwater.”

OIL is a RENEWABLE: Oil Fields Are Refilling… Naturally – Sometimes Rapidly « Aletho News

Oil Fields Are Refilling… Naturally – Sometimes Rapidly

EXCERPT:

Deep underwater, and deeper underground, scientists see surprising hints that gas and oil deposits can be replenished, filling up again, sometimes rapidly.

Although it sounds too good to be true, increasing evidence from the Gulf of Mexico suggests that some old oil fields are being refilled by petroleum surging up from deep below, scientists report. That may mean that current estimates of oil and gas abundance are far too low.

Recent measurements in a major oil field show “that the fluids were changing over time; that very light oil and gas were being injected from below, even as the producing [oil pumping] was going on,” said chemical oceanographer Mahlon “Chuck” Kennicutt. “They are refilling as we speak. But whether this is a worldwide phenomenon, we don’t know.”

Stabenow sends President reminder of Great Lakes drilling ban after Executive Order signed | WWMT

https://wwmt.com/news/state/stabenow-sends-president-reminder-of-great-lakes-drilling-ban-after-executive-order-signed

EXCERPT:

An executive order signed by President Donald Trump on Tuesday reversed an Obama-era policy that ordered for the protection of oceans and the Great Lakes.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) sent a letter to the President on Wednesday to remind him that there is a permanent federal ban on gas and oil drilling in the Great Lakes.

“The economic and environmental significance of the Great Lakes cannot be overstated,” Stabenow wrote. “Our Great Lakes are the largest surface freshwater system on Earth, supply drinking water to over 40 million people, and sustain a $6 trillion economy and over 50 million jobs. Given the existing ban on drilling and the importance of the Great Lakes, I call on you to reverse course and oppose any efforts to open our waters to oil and gas drilling as a result of your recent Executive Order.”
