The electric grid in the United States is being mishandled, and customers will pay a high price as a result.
The recent closing of the Palisades Power Plant in Michigan provided more proof of this.
The 811-megawatt nuclear plant was shut down on the same day that the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).
United States' electric grid lacks sufficient generation capacity, and that blackouts are almost certain to occur this summer across the country.
The Midwest, in particular, is experiencing a capacity shortage, which could result in a "high risk of energy crisis under peak summer circumstances,".
Palisades was in the heart of the Midwest, right next to the Mid-continent Independent System Operator's (MISO) service area, which NERC classified as being particularly short on power.
