Let’s Have A Better Conversation

During the Public Service Commission public hearing forum, a few comments brought us back to the old debate of fossil fuel vs. renewable energy. On the one team sits those who say wind and solar is the only safe way to the future. Those on the other team say it gets dark and cloudy around this place so we need conventional power plants for reliability. Sandwiched in the middle of all of this are the jobs, the workers, the students and the taxpayers. It's like we are standing at a Y in the road and are forced to chose only one energy path going forward. But, then you open the paper the morning after the PSC forum and right next to the picture of those holding up "Repower NRG" signs is a headline announcing "Cummins Receives Solar Energy Funding." So what can we take away from all of this?
