Defeating coronavirus would be impossible without energy workers who power the fight

Fox News

“You may not have thought of the roughly 14 million men and women working in our energy industry as having anything to do with the war against the coronavirus.  Ventilators and a great deal of other life-saving medical equipment are useless without electric power. Scientists in labs can’t conduct their research in dark rooms during a blackout. And plastic – a vital part of medical equipment, phones, and thousands of products used in health care and every other part of our lives – is made with oil or natural gas,” according to Fox News.

President Trump’s Fuel Economy Rule a Win for Consumers and Automakers

American Energy Alliance

“The American Energy Alliance welcomed the final Safer Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule released by the White House today noting that clear auto fuel efficiency standards can benefit a majority of consumers and automakers simultaneously. Contrary to claims that this final rule has been rushed out in a time of crisis, the rule is the culmination of a several years long joint process from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and it is required by the law.”

Solar Panels Perform Poorly in Minnesota During Winter Months

Institute for Energy Research

“Solar power is not always beneficial, particularly in certain northern U.S. states where solar irradiance is not the best. In Minnesota the capacity factor of solar fell to 5.6 percent in December 2018, the time of year when it is darkest and cold weather begins to set in. Solar power loses its performance value due to shorter days in winter, snowfall reflecting light, and the expense of removing snow from solar panels.  Some states are losing interest in solar power due to environmental concerns when forests need to be cleared and hilltops leveled to make room for solar panels. It appears that as more is learned about solar energy, more questions are being generated, even when electricity from solar panels …
