Where are we headed here in Texas with our long range resource planning efforts? The short answer is, there is no long range generation planning effort by ERCOT.
Austin's Citizens task for the 2050 plan has no detailed engineering analysis. For the City Council to use this report as an engineering report and enact changes in Austin's power supply without AE giving it a PE stamp would constitute practicing engineering without a license.

Don't install Winzip software such as driver tuner or malware. It is a virus. I learned the hard way.
Twitter comments I have posted discussing energy and climate change issues.
Even a variable speed of light would appear to be a constant.
