While U.S. demand for electricity has risen in all but four years since 1949, the rate of increase has been steadily going down. The Energy Information Administration predicts an annual growth rate around +1% to 2030 (which RMI extrapolates to 2050).
Rocky Mountain Institute’s four scenarios for the future U.S. electricity system ( detailed here ) all deliver the same energy services but with varied end-use efficiencies. In the fourth scenario (Transform), projected efficiency gains cut nationwide demand by 1% each year, even with the added demand from 150 million electric vehicles.”

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
