Len Peters http://wkms.org en Kentucky Energy Secretary: We Need A Blend Of Energy Sources http://wkms.org/post/kentucky-energy-secretary-we-need-blend-energy-sources <p>The Secretary of the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet said he&rsquo;s a strong supporter of natural gas development as a source of energy in Kentucky and elsewhere. However, Len Peters said the country will be a lot better off with a blend of options.</p><p>&ldquo;If all we do is move coal-dominated electricity generation to a natural gas electricity generation is not a good way to go,&quot; said Peters. &quot;There&rsquo;s no diversification in that. We have to be able to build coal. We have to be able to build natural gas. Nobody wants to build nuclear these days so we&rsquo;re moving away from a more balanced set of opportunities.&rdquo;</p><p> Mon, 07 Oct 2013 19:49:09 +0000 Dan Conti (KPR) 35518 at http://wkms.org Kentucky Energy Secretary: We Need A Blend Of Energy Sources Ky.
