Are You Prepared for Post-Election Blackouts? We are Talkin “BLACK OUTS” not “brown outs”

A preliminary analysis by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) indicates that new MACT and ancillary rules being pushed by the EPA will force the already inadequate numbers of coal-fired plants to undergo expensive and time-consuming retrofits or shut down. We are talking about a significant void in the nation’s power generation as a result of plants that are “likely to be retired.”

The vulnerable states include California, Oregon, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Texas, Arkansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Lights out! Coming to a plant near you?

The blackouts caused by the EPA mandates are expected to start in the post-election year of 2013 in Texas and would hit other regions over the following 5 years, during which time Mr. Obama will no longer be accountable to the voters.

According to the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) grid assessment, “up to 677 coal-fired power generation [plants] representing about 30 percent of the nation’s power supply will need to be retrofitted by 2015.”

The plants will go off line for several months. That could have a devastating effect on reliability issues “even during off-peak periods.”

The NERC assessment predicts that eight regions could drop below “acceptable reserve margins” by 2018 because of EPA regulations. “In other words,” according to the study, “30 states in these regions — home to 190 million Americans — could be at greater risk of blackouts.”

Some states are not waiting for disaster to strike. Kansas is already suing the EPA, saying the new regs will lead to blackouts even sooner in part due to the MACT rules forcing plants off-line before this current year is at an end.

    “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison

    “No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d. Sec 256

    “An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton vs. Shelby County

    “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” Miranda vs. Arizona
