Re: “Is Dominion Banking Too Much on Natural Gas?

Wind and solar, combined with storage, CAN work. Storage is taking leaps and bounds forward and distributed generation IS the way of the future. (Really back to the future. Remember seeing windmills in family pictures? My family farm still has the towers for the windmill and the water storage so it wasn't that long ago.) Unfortunately, Virginia is clinging to the recent past, trying to depend on only large, utility owned sources of generation. Gas is considered a bridge fuel, why invest in lots of infrastructure for something that won't last that long? Why not start moving toward the future? As a country, we've invested much in fossil fuels but very little in renewables. In Virginia, we've also done very little energy efficiency, so that's another opportunity. Instead of automatically parroting "Renewables cost too much" we could redirect our dollars toward making them work.
