Dec. 19 — The biggest power generation conference in the world was down in Orlando last week, about a thousand miles south of my small cabin in upstate New York. Power Gen gets 20,000 attendees, so for a part-time hermit that’s sensory overload. But Orlando was also 70 degrees warmer than upstate New York, and so it seemed like a good time to re-test those people skills and venture out of the cabin.

Because high energy costs can impact municipal budgets and the ability to fund essential services, TCAP, as part of its mission, actively promotes affordable energy policies. High energy prices also place a burden on local businesses and home consumers.
