Trump’s electricity solution in search of a problem

Most power outages are due to failures in the transmission network (storms, broken power lines), not instability in supply. Making the move to newer, cleaner energy solutions is going to be difficult and take time – and cause pain for those involved. But that's not a good reason to prop up old, dirty, under-utilized coal and nuclear plants with subsidies or tricks. Let the newer "old fuel" plants provide the resilience needed, and replace the even older dirty capacity with newer, cleaner energy.
There’s not a lot of evidence behind his laser focus on coal and nuclear power.
