    Most people seem to believe that wind and solar panels produce no waste and have no negative environmental impacts. Unfortunately, these people are wrong. In reality, everything that humans do has an environmental impact, whether it be mining, using

    My colleague Mitch Rolling studies utility company filings. He found that Xcel Energy, the principal electrical utility in Minnesota and Colorado, recently warned that reliance on wind energy could lead to power outages:

    Xcel warns that the growing presence of remote energy sources like wind and solar could trigger power outages similar to what occurred in southern Australia in 2016. As the utility company notes:

    [I]n 2016, the Australia power system experienced storm damage that forced several transmission lines to open. The wind farms that were being relied upon at that time…started to trip offline – resulting in a large-scale power outage in southern Australia. While there are standards and practices in place in the Eastern Interconnection, MISO and Minnesota transmission systems to help avoid this same scenario, the rapid escalation of renewable resources and the earlier than expected retirement of baseload generation places a greater strain on the transmission system to deliver more remote sources of generation, and increases the likelihood of events similar to the Australia power outage occurring on the local transmission system.
    With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris firmly committed to a radical version of the Green New Deal, it is a good time to ask: what would happen if we actually tried to rely on wind and solar for electricity generation? South Australia gave us a preview of

    Gavin Newsom said the state had to "sober up" about renewable energy sources, which needed "backup" and "insurance" from other sources.

    Holding MDU 24 years. Seven percent annualized gain, plus the dividends. Rarely have commented here. Was more exciting in the olden days. Still a bit away from all-time high of six years ago.

    Congrats again for the new 53 wk highs....now go for the all-time high.....IMO going all in with material and construction services (building road-ways) might be a consideration.....Maybe separate into 2-3 companies...why take $$$ from one to help the others.......zoom zoom

    If you don't think there's a huge infrastructure bill at the end of this virus epidemic you're crazy. Right into MDU's wheelhouse and a great dividend yield as you await the appreciation of the share price.

    Georgetown’s electric bills went up as more wind and solar power displaced cheaper natural gas in the power portfolio of the Georgetown’s municipal utility. Politicians scrambled for cover. And the bloom came off Georgetown’s renewable rose. )

    Just a thought...Could MDU's lack of a pulse the last year or more be part of an effort by the powers to be to have BKH and MDU become equals, at least by market cap., and make it an easy way to sell a merger of equals?.....
