Smoke screen!
Indications are that Big Wind will not stop until it gets a PTC extension! While it’s not clear Congress when Congress will take up another spending bill, AWEA is now circulating the attached letter for signatures. We should assume that some congressional members, especially Sen. Grassley (R-IA), are encouraging Big Wind. (ICYMI Grassley posted this … Continue reading BigWind thieves want more C$SH from YOU
The US taxpayer has given the BigWindustry an amazing Christmas bonus now for almost 40 years. Congress is filled with wimps and liars.

Visit a … Continue reading Will Batteries be the savior for BigWind? No and they are NOT green
It is beyond absurd when environmentalists call for 100% renewable energy. The reasons why are endless, as we discuss them regularly, but our recent Polar Vortex is a great reason.

If BigWind is already UNaffordable, (see previous article),what will battery storage do to the economics? It spells d-i-s-a-s-t-e-r for the industry.

California legislators out of their minds, to believe that … Continue reading Why battery storage won’t save BigWind
