Statement by Gregory Wetstone, American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE), President and Chief Executive Officer

WASHINGTON, August 23, 2017 - “We look forward to reviewing the full report in greater detail, and welcome the focus on the resilience and security of our electricity supply suggested in the report’s recommendations. There is little doubt that the increasing use of renewable energy has made the nation’s electrical grid more robust and secure.

In fact, experts have concluded that renewable sources were critical to maintaining electricity supply during the polar vortex, when other power sources became unavailable. Certainly, we would be concerned by any effort to use resiliency as an excuse for propping up uneconomic sources of electrical power, and denying consumers free market access to clean, cost-effective renewable energy from, for example, wind and solar power.”
