WV Portfolio Standard Kills Innovation — Here’s the Evidence

PJM Interconnection issued a press release today documenting the dramatic increase in solar generation across the PJM region.

In 2009, the WV Legislature and Gov. Manchin passed the WV Renewable and Alternative Portfolio Standard law to sabotage the development of solar power in WV.  The results are clear.  Here is the map from the PJM press release.  Look at NJ, where incentives are strong and PV installation has been exploding.  Compare NJ’s results with WV.  In fact, compare WV with just about any other state in PJM.  Pathetic.

If you are fighting PATH, you should thank our friends in NJ, because they are taking responsibility for their own power generation, insuring that coal by wire transmission lines like PATH can never be built.
