For starters, it is worth clarifying that utilities LIKE many green mandates because they get to ramp up electricity prices for all those “renewables: which means bigger profits for them and their companies. That said, those energy companies STILL need to provide reliable electricity. So, when the head of Duke Energy, one of America’s largest …
