What Will 2018 Bring?

2017 flew by and here we are starting a new year. The past year was an interesting time for the electric industry. The price of electricity, wind generation installation, solar construction, and the abundance of natural gas has changed the industry for the foreseeable future. The U.S. Department of Energy is looking to find ways to sustain the coal and nuclear plants and the construction of a nuclear generation plant was halted mid-project. The industry has gone through a lot of growing pains but the good news for the consumer is that energy prices are lower than they have been for years. I found an interesting article that provides some insight into what we can expect in the power sector for 2018.
