Renewable energy actually reduces electricity prices for businesses and consumers.
Infrastructure to connect renewable energy is a great investment.
Integrating variable renewable resources is easier and cheaper than we thought.
Why has integrating so much wind so fast been relatively painless?
Geographic diversity: The wind blows at different times in different places across MISO’s 12-state footprint, smoothing out the variation at any single location.
Better forecasting tools make it easier to accurately predict wind-turbine output.
Transmission expansions and upgrades are being approved and constructed, giving operators greater flexibility to manage all resources and consumers more choices and competition.
Grid operators around the country and the globe are gaining experience and learning from each other as they successfully integrate ever larger amounts of renewable energy into their systems.America has far more than enough renewable energy resources to meet its entire electric demand.
