Remember the sign ‘Farmers Feed Cities’?… that would be the farmers of rural Ontario folks….Let’s not feed them anymore! Let them eat their own ?.

DTE was disrupting residential AC yesterday and a substation went out as well. But might have surplus power today as it’s Saturday.

EIA – Today In Energy

Using power price maps reflects real-time-constraints on the transmission of electricity. Up-to-date maps don’t seem to be available to the public

Price Tab: Gives the expected range of power prices for today in the U.S.

Map: Click on Midwest/MISO > Real Time Market Data

Has a page of real time wind production for MISO, but MISO covers a large territory in the U.S.

http://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.cfm?id=3150

Visual tools to better understand power power production & transmission issues. May have some use in Ontario to view how things work. Like wind power production fluctuations in real time.

“Canada will have a national price on carbon by the end of this year, environment-minister says.”

Town Halls involving carbon issues were held across Canada earlier this year including one in Toronto this past June.

Build consensus?
