DOE: More than a quarter of 2016 capacity additions were wind | Utility Dive

Utility-scale wind installations stand at more than 82 GW, and 40 states and Puerto Rico have utility-scale wind projects. Texas led the nation in wind energy capacity in 2016 with over 20 GW installed; utility-scale wind came online in North Carolina in early 2017.

DOE also finds that wind energy “continues to be sold at attractive prices through power purchase agreements, making this renewable energy source cost-competitive with traditional power sources such as natural gas in many parts of the U.S.”

It is especially competitive when wind energy is sold at a fixed price over 20 years

Taking the bus to Oregon Coast

Hi All, I did some research on taking the bus to the Oregon Coast. There are basically two options. 1) Go to Cannon Beach and pay $34 2) Go to Lincoln City and pay $6. Option 1 costs $34 and is booked through Amtrak (have to prepay “you can use their app”), but it’s a bus called the NorthWest POINT which leaves from Sunset Transit Center at 9:48 a.m. on Saturdays. Option 2 is drive down to Salem Greyhound station (a 45+ minute drive from Portland) and pay $6 (which you can pay the driver) going taking the Coastal Connector bus which leaves at 9:40 a.m. See attachements for more. Thanks :). God Bless :). AaronSunset Transit Center to Cannon BeachCannon Beach to Sunset Transit CenterDrive to Greyhound SalemCoastal-Connector-Brochure
