 Why are we here?

Hubbert’s Three Prophecies
First Prophecy: 1956
Second Prophecy: 1974
Third Prophecy: Cultural Crisis-
exponential growth


“Cultural Crisis”-Switch to flow of Solar Energy/greatest era in
                         human history
                         VY vs. Renewables Multiplier
                        “Crying over Spilt Jobs in Vernon”
                       Multiplier effect of money spent in-state by employment
                                      Multiplier = 1/(1-.75)=1/.25=4

VY Revenue                                                VT Renewable Energy (RE) Revenue
Vt utilities buy ~2.7 billion kwh/yr from VY              Vt utilities buy ~2.7 billion kwh/yr from RE
Price ~4.2c/kwh                                           Price ~10c/kwh
2.7B kwh x $.042/kwh = $113.4 million/year                2.7B kwh x $.10/kwh = $270 million/year

VY multiplier                                             VT Renewables Multiplier
labor cost ~20%                                           labor cost ~30%
.2 x $113.4M = $22.68 million to VY employees             .3 x $270M = $81 million to RE employees
Instate employees ~60%                                    Instate employees ~90%
.6x $22.68 = $13.6 million                                .9x $81 = $72.9 million
4 x $13.6M = $54.4 million                                4 x $72.9 = $291.6 million

                              Multiplier Ratio: 5.36:1
