Natural gas prices are rising. In fact, European and Asian natural gas rates very recently surged from a pandemic low in May 2020 by 1,000 percent! In the U.S. specifically, natural gas rates for the month of August are at the highest level in a decade.
Surging natural gas prices means it will be more costly to power factories or produce petrochemicals. For consumers it brings higher monthly energy and gas utility bills.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) stated, “Higher fuel costs for natural gas-fired power plants this year means that those plants will be dispatched for electricity generation less often, while coal-fired power plants will likely be dispatched more often.”
This could mean a short-term recovery on the horizon for coal.
However, it is short-term. The push for more renewable energy is well underway. States are moving toward a target date in the not-to-distant future when renewable energy will supply most, if not all the energy we use—pushing out the less expensive coal and even natural gas industries.
As your state moves closer to its renewable energy target date, you will at some point have no choice and will have to pay the higher prices of renewable energy. It’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when.
