NYC Peaker Plants June 01 2020
On May 28th, there was an excellent webinar by the New York City Peak Coalition, called "Replacing New York City's Dirty Peaker Power Plants with Renewables and Battery Storage."
It was an in-depth look at the impact of peaker plants—electric generating plants that come on line when demand for electricity peaks, usually on the hottest summer days. These plants are generally more polluting than other generating plants and have an impact on New Yorkers both as residents in environmentally assaulted neighborhoods and as utility ratepayers.
Slides and a recording of this webinar have been posted on the Clean Energy Group website. The report featured in the webinar, "Dirty Energy, Big Money," is available on the Peak Coalition website.
