37. Oil is less than 2% of current electric generation.
In our grid, most oil fired generation is functionally comparable to natural gas, not coal. That was a response to a previous post but I thought it relevant since you claim that coal will have to pick up the slack from oil plants closing.

You really don't understand the way our system works or the functional characteristics of the technologies involved, so why not follow a plan? Here it is:
Step one: Study the subject a bit.
Step two: Engage in prognostication.

You will almost certainly achieve more accuracy.
