“At a recent meeting of Yaw’s committee, PJM officials testified, at the current course, PJM is not going to have sufficient power to meet the demands of consumers. The legislators agree this will likely result in increased prices, risks of blackouts, and restrictions on when and how we can use electricity.”

“Residents of both Pennsylvania and Ohio depend on affordable and reliable energy to power their homes and businesses,” said Sen. Ryan Aument. “But projections from PJM show that Pennsylvanians’ and Ohioans’ current energy use could be in jeopardy if we don’t work together to swiftly implement responsible policies that promote a strong, reliable baseload power supply that generates the energy we need no matter the weather or time of day. I look forward to working with our counterparts in Ohio to ensure none of our residents suffer pricey electric bills or rolling blackouts.”

I don’t like to be an alarmist, but I do not have much confidence that politicians will either act in time or enact legislation that will actually do something. You need to take responsibility and act now.
