Natural Gas Power Plants – Including Data from Texas

Hourly net generation by energy source

Natural gas combined cycle power plants are more efficient than wind and solar power plants. Nearly twice as many wind turbines must be built to get the same amount of electricity as a natural gas or nuclear power plant.
Natural gas power plants are the least expensive to build.
Natural gas, nuclear and coal-fired power plants are baseload power that provide electricity 24/7 365 days per year.
Texas pipelines replaced efficient small gas turbine compressor stations with electric motors that had power cut off during load shedding.
