Manhattan Institute Flunks Energy 101
Lewis Milford, Huffington Post
Last week, the Manhattan Institute issued a report that pretends to be a serious analysis of the impact of renewable energy on electricity prices. The report includes tables and numbers that purport to show that renewable energy produced dramatic increases in customers' electricity bills over the past decade. Yet it only takes a few minutes of close reading to realize that the data prove no such thing -- and that the author disregarded pertinent studies showing that the price impact of renewable energy has been minimal.
