Com Ed Reports 1% of Energy from Wind

Enclosed in my October electric bill was an “Environmental Disclosure Information” report from Com Ed for the last twelve months.

When I looked at Com Ed’s sources of electricity, I found that only 1% comes from wind mills.

The biggie, of course, is nuclear power at 58%.

Next is coal at 32%.

4% came from natural gas. Peaker plants, I would imagine.

Also coming in at 1% were hydro and biomass power.

Alternative power sources obviously does not have a high priority for our electric company.
