The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM and 1510 AM, talked about Procter & Gamble, emissions, renewables and much more last week.
Shale Gas News is now also on the air at WWSM 1510 am in Lebanon, PA. This station covers Lancaster, Harrisburg and York County and that entire area.
Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we touched on some older examples of why we support natural gas to give a background to our new listeners and to let folks know what this show is all about.
The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the February 18th show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Procter & Gamble Mehoopany Plant Goes Off Grid. This state-of-the-art generator (the second to be installed at the site) uses one of the most efficient Aeroderivative Gas Turbines in the world—essentially the same engine found on an Airbus A380—making our Mehoopany Plant now a net exporter of electricity to the electrical power grid.
- Natural Gas & Renewables. American electricity primarily is generated from coal, natural gas and nuclear energy sources. These three sources accounted for 85 percent of the electricity generated in the U.S. in 2014; however, renewable sources also play an important role. Hydropower generated 6 percent of electricity in 2014; wind provided 4.4 percent, biomass delivered 1.7 percent, and geothermal and solar each contributed 0.4 percent.
- Natural Gas Use Slashes Air Emissions. Natural gas has allowed the United States to meet its demand for affordable energy while also dramatically decreasing emissions. If we continue on this trajectory, we can expect emissions to decrease even more.
- How to Make the Mighty Marcellus Count in Pennsylvania. It seems like every single day — sometimes several times a day — a new report is released, a new project rumor is started, or an article is published associated with Marcellus and Utica shale gas development.
