Blackout : how the electric industry exploits America by Gordon Lee Weil( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the midst of the sweltering summer of August 2003, the lights went out across northeast America. From Canada to Philadelphia, houses were plunged into darkness, elevators stalled, subway cars ceased to run, air-conditioners shuddered into silence, and the candle-lit 1890s streets of Brooklyn became a reality once more. Astonishingly, no company or individual has ever been held accountable for what cost affected regions millions of dollars in lost revenue and compensation. The electricity companies involved introduced no new rules, nor a single firing? nothing. As Gordon Weil explores in Blackout, this was the culmination of a long history of exploitation by the electric industry of its customers, coupled with the seeming indifference and incompetence of the regulators who were supposed to protect them. Weil describes the founding of the original electric monopoly by Edison and his secretary, Insull, and reveals how and why Roosevelt?s efforts to control the company?s excesses failed. Weil continues with the willful failure of the industry to integrate itself into the competitive marketplace; a failure in which the customer remains the biggest loser. Weil concludes that unless the government and the regulators undertake radical legislation,?lights out? remains a distinct possibility for us all

The Muskrat Falls hydro project : opportunities and risks by Gordon Lee Weil( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Labrador has significant potential for the production of hydroelectric power, ranking it among the top remaining, undeveloped resources in North America. The proposed Muskrat Falls project at Lower Churchill Falls would be the second major development of Labrador's hydro resource. Hydropower is the leading renewable, noncarbon resource in the world. While no generating resource can be developed without environmental and social impacts, the remote location of the Churchill facilities makes them especially attractive for development. At the same time, their remoteness imposes unusually heavy transmission costs to bring the power to customers -- the load. Because there is no fuel cost, the capital costs of hydro generation and transmission allow planners to have a good idea of power supply costs over the long term
