Runaround on wind energy  

I was very heartened by the letter from Dawn Rivers Baker. As a resident of Delaware County and a customer of NYSEG, I’m very interested in the discussion on energy. I’m glad that we already receive hydro energy, and question the validity of NYSEG already charging us for renewable energy, as indicated on the bill.

Not too long ago, I signed up for wind power and found out in doing so I was charged an additional $7-plus on my bill, stipulated as a “donation.” I thought my bill would go down, not up! I canceled my support. Since the same company that I had signed up with (Invenergy) is now proposing windmills in our backyard, I’ve asked officials there and at NYSEG, will we be asked to make a “donation”? Will our bills increase?

I get the runaround and no straight answer to the question. I’m not the only one who has asked and continue to ask. None of us has had any success in getting an answer. Let’s add this to the discussion.

What will the cost be for each household? Are we supporting renewable energy or is the support for a big corporation to make money from us and state and federal grants?
