Will the devil be hidden to retail customers destined to pay more for clean energy than customers serviced by Alternative Retail Electric Supplier (ARES) that contract from neighboring States dirty energy suppliers?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Illinois Senate to return Monday to take up energy package with nuclear plant bailout. Here’s what else is in it. reported Illinois Com-Ed retail users will pay additional fees because of Governor Pritzker’s plans to change the mix of electric energy from dirty sources like coal and gas to solar and wind to clean up our environment.

Meanwhile, contracts will continue to be signed to allow Illinois users to obtain energy for ARES who in turn manage contracts for both large or retail users to obtain energy from neighboring States suppliers who may  generate from dirty sources that will affect Illinois clean air..

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb, an idiom, for Illinois retail customers to discern the wisdom and understanding on this issue to discern the details, both the potentials of unfairness, and opportunities presented that will not be understood or considered by Illinois legislators when they pass the Bill today.

King Solomon

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. (Proverb 4:7 KJV)

Idiom – The Devil is in the Detail

The devil is in the details is an idiom alluding to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details: something might seem simple at a first look but will take more time and effort to complete than expected.  (giggle)

What’s My Point?

The Illinois Senate will pass to Bill today because it would be folly to allow a nuclear energy plant already in existence to shut down that produces a reliable source of clean energy while at the same time proceed with plans for the future to change from dirty to clean energy sources.

My point is to question if the Senate goal of clean energy really understands the details of their goals for clean energy.

For Example

Will the added costs be a flat rate charge or based on energy usages to all Com Ed and other ARES suppliers in Illinois?

Will all the clean energy components needed to supply wind and solar power be manufactured in Illinois to create jobs in Illinois communities or in China or elsewhere>

Will other energy sources who contract energy from other States with continue to obtain power from dirty sources to obtain lower prices even if Illinois pays more for clean energy?

 In My Opinion

The devil is in the details which most voters have no understanding of when they vote for legislators to represent their interests in government.

While I personally believe that the goal for every State should be to find clean energy source to replace dirty energy into other air, and into our lungs, and on our buildings forests environments,

However, I also know about the devil is often hiding in details which most people never hear or seedy.

Mainly, that if goals are set by government legislators who lack understanding of how energy is vital component in every State, same as jobs, and the goals are not realistic,  

And when power users experience power outages and their plans for clean energy has no backup plans or sources available that have Benn shut down and no longer available to quickly be utilized, the goals are folly.

In other words, the Chicago Tribune needs to focus on the issue of energy to bring about awareness to expose more of the devil in the details of what is required to obtain clean energy. Also to question  the unfairness and lack of wisdom and vision by the legislators in Illinois who will vote today to pass the subsidies on to Illinois retail customers and then focus their time to renaming streets in Illinois.

You Decide

Why did it take a deadline ultimatum by Com-Ed to obtain the Illinois Senate to vote on one of the vital needs of any State in the Nation to survive and prosper, Reliable power sources for energy?

How can Illinois voters get wisdom if they never understand the reality of where the devil is hiding in the Bills passed by Illinois Legislators?
