Convergence of all power sources to appropriate context

IX Power is a strong proponent of the 9th generation.  We believe there is a place for every type of power production in the overall energy picture for our planet.  Selecting the most appropriate type of energy production for any given location is the challenge.  In making this decision for a community, large or small, several factors must be taken into consideration:  capital cost, average monthly cost to the rate-payer, size of determined site, ease of operation in relation to available workforce, and environmental impact.
