This not-too-surprising headline from Bloomberg caught our attention:
According to the story, because the sun isn’t shining, solar power generation has fallen in half in the New England states due to the thick smoke from the fires.
But don’t expect the lights to go out anytime soon in Massachusetts or Maine, because it turns out all those progressives in Boston and Vermont don’t depend much on solar energy. The Bloomberg story reports that “solar accounts for about 3% of power generation in New England.”
We guess that means total power generation in these “green” and “blue” states is down just 1.5% – because solar is so inconsequential. Apparently, all those sanctimonious Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren voters have concluded that green energy is for thee, not me.
