This recent article published by the North State Journal (https://lnkd.in/et_mCjY) states "increase solar power might be leading to an increase in the very emissions alternative energy sources aim to reduce."
This assertion is connected to cycling of Duke Energy natural gas plants as they "must scale back electric generation to accommodate solar energy surging onto the system when the sun rises, and power back up when the sun sets and solar energy dissipates."
This and any other assertion that plant cycling is caused by any specific driver needs to be demonstrated by a cycling causality study. Such a study has been documented in a report from Renewable Impacts LLC and is a available free by contacting Jim Schetter, President Renewable Impacts LLC at 303-726-4828 or email at email@example.com.
