Physicist to Discuss Need for Major Power Lines Projects
Following rave reviews—from the public and press—at a recent presentation in Columbia County, independent research physicist Dr. Gidon Eshel is coming to Dutchess County to showcase his findings that existing power lines can meet our region’s peak electricity-demand needs well into the future. The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) is seeking to expand 150 miles of transmission lines that would pass through seven counties and 25 towns in the Hudson Valley. With Dr. Eshel’s help, the Hudson Valley Smart Energy Coaltion seeks to establish a transparent and quantitative tool to assess and forecast true electricity demand, so that energy proposals and solutions can be evaluated before committing billions of dollars
On Saturday, Nov. 1, at 2 p.m., Dr. Eshel will deliver his presentation at the Bard College Bertelsmann Campus Center. Dr. Eshel is an internationally recognized physicist, scientist and research professor with expertise in data analysis and efficiency metrics. We hope you can join us for what promises to be fun, lively and rigorous review of the first and only independent and unfettered scientific research of this type conducted for the public interest.
