Speaking of spin, that’s exactly what the industrial wind barons do when they are pulling the wool over our eyes about the scarce tangible benefits of this unnecessary development. (Click on this link for our ECONOMIC VIDEO MESSAGE of the day.)
The wind itself may be free, but the turbines, the transmission lines, the higher electricity rates that you will pay, and the tax subsidies that you have to keep shelling out are astronomically expensive compared to other fuel sources like natural gas, which is plentiful. The costs of industrial wind turbines far outweigh the benefits. As long as Maine keeps propping up a technology that can’t stand on its own, plan on paying much more than necessary for your energy.
