      that particular sentence refers to gas used for heating.  Here: http://climatecrocks.com/... is an interview with one of the authors of the study, which says:

      We’re getting lots of excess electricity, especially September, October through May.

      And lo and behold, that’s when we’re using a lot of fuels for heating. So . . . we asked the question, suppose we displaced natural gas for heating with this excess electricity?

      •  While the diary links to this GE puff piece (0+ / 0-)

        Look the Del study uses the words "natural gas" 33 times, in the first 2 dozen or so they are referencing displacing nat gas, I quite counting at that point.

        The quote you just provided is about displacing nat gas.... the diary inserts nat gas plants to generate electricity where renewables cant.

        Thats simply not the same. And I find no evidence the authors of the Del study support more nat gas peakers.
