Renewable energy should come clean with its details  

Credit:  The Portland Press Herald, www.pressherald.com 29 January 2012 ~~

I do not like having the “wool pulled over my eyes.” I like straightforward deals which are out in the open for all to see. I am sure most of you out there feel the same way.

The more I read about “renewable energy” scams in Maine, the more it irks me. Why can’t the wind industry just come clean and tell the average Joe what is going on behind the scenes? I think I know the answer to that question. It is because if “Joe” knew the whole truth about renewable energy and what it will cost the consumers once in place, no one would want renewable energy.

Who can afford to pay higher electric bills than they pay right now? A better question is: Why would anyone want to pay a higher electric bill?

The object should be lowering our electricity costs here in Maine. At the very least, we consumers should have a choice about where we get our electricity from.

We should have the choice to “opt out” of renewable energy if we don’t want to pay higher rates for electricity. There are many who are struggling out there as it is to pay their bills. Why place more of a burden on them?

This so-called green, renewable energy is a scam whose time has passed. I am all for looking at alternatives to wind and solar. Maine can and should do better than this.
