The following argument is flawed for numerous reasons. Primarily, it is based on the unwarranted assumption that, the three electric generating plants in operation for the past twenty years have always met the required needs and that the construction of new generating plants will not be necessary, rendering its main conclusion that, the total demand for electricity in our area will not increase — and may decline slightly, invalid.

The argument fails to provide any justification how the electric generating plants that always met the necessary needs for past twenty years, will still continue to do the same, in present and future as well. Alongwith this, the author states without nay evidence that there is no need for concstruction of new generating plants. Had the argument provided information regarding, the condition and maintainance of the three generating plants. Even then, the argument further needs to prove that, the generating plants that were sufficient for the electricty needs, twenty years back, are still not lacking the needs of the present and the future. The author needs to consider many other factors like, the population change of that specific area, that will affect the required electric needs.

Also, the argument leaves many unaswered questions. It mentions several recent surveys indicating that home owners are increasingly eager to conserve energy. It doesn't provide any information regarding what percentage of the homes were surveyed. Also, it doesn't mention when and where the surveys were conducted. The argument is still lacking beacuse it doesn't contain any information anything regarding what were the questions included in the survey and how many were directly related to conserving teh energy. This leaves a lot of space for doubt.

In general, the author fails to make a convincing argument because of lack of statistical data and facts. Also, the argument is based on many unwarranted assumptions. The argument could have strengthened if the author provided information regarding facts like, population of the area twenty years ago verus today, the homes percentage of included in survey, how the manufactures marketing home appliances are energy efficient. Then, the argument ends with an optimistic conclusion based on wishy-washy observations, that are likely to be incorrect.
