Is Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) really spending $1,390,000 to install a giant battery that will save one $175 monthly electric bill for one average-sized house? (See: http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/?/article_eff7e485-e160-?) Why not buy a $350 clean natural/propane gas generator? Don’t these batteries have dangerous metals and chemicals that hurt the environment? How much will “green” disposal cost? How much energy needed and damage done to mine the metals and manufacture the chemicals? Will dues from IBEW Electrical Workers Union members who do this job be enough to pay big salaries for Union Business Managers/Agents Ed Gant, Roy Foster, and Tim Carew? ?(Note: ?Photo shows how there is not enough wind to move wind-turbines on coldest and hottest days when energy needed most. ? ?ACUA “solution” is to install $1.39 million battery so it can save $175 monthly electric bills during these hit and cold months.
