Biden’s Radical Green Energy Agenda Will Corrupt Our Grid

This week, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) released their 2023 Reliability Risk Priorities Report, and it drew concerns about the reliability of the US’s grid and the possible risks if Biden’s green energy agenda would come to fruition. Biden’s reckless plan to rapidly decarbonize could jeopardize our nation’s energy security and its ability to function effectively.

The report entailed five threats to overall grid reliability, including grid transformation, extreme event resiliency, security risks, infrastructure interdependency, and energy policy- a new risk added this year. As explained in the report, energy policy – specifically prematurely pushing renewables – impacts grid transformation as it could cause abrupt changes in planning and operations, ultimately affecting the grid’s reliability and resilience. Currently, the energy output of renewables could not sufficiently power our grid, and these actions are putting our nation’s energy security in peril.

Part of the administration’s plan is for our grid to be powered 81 percent by green energy by 2030, which poses major concerns due our infrastructure and the unreliability of this energy. Other actions by the administration also threaten our grid like devastating tailpipe emission restrictions to push electric vehicles that will overload our grid and cause major disruptions in its functioning. It’s clear that there is a real gap between renewables’ actual energy output and our nation’s demand.

Instead of solely pushing one type of energy, especially one that is underdeveloped and unreliable, the administration should embrace all types of energy to fortify our national security and ensure affordable and dependable energy for everyone. Biden’s agenda is bound to backfire and cause real repercussions that will fall back on the American people.
