Winds of destruction 

Credit:  Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan | www.yankton.net ~~

If you want to see the biggest waste of taxpayer money since Cash for Clunkers or the last Middle East War, drive six miles north of Avon.

The Prevailing Wind Park is under construction. They burn up more fossil fuels in one day than the whole wind farm will offset in a lifetime. They ruin the roads and are hauling enough gravel for the turbine project to gravel every road in the county. It almost resembles a military operation.

Money is no object. PUC Commissioner Chris Nelson recently noted the tax credit from one wind turbine is about $3 million over 10 years. If you take any of the projects being built now, the average cost per turbine is approximately $3 million. Guess what? The taxpayer pays for the whole wind farm. And when they’re done, they raise our electricity rates.

The production tax credit is supposed to phase out. Not on your life. Thune, Rounds, Johnson, Noem and Grassley all support more PTC. The campaign contributions are just too much to pass by.

In five years, there will be few places in eastern South Dakota where your view will not include a wind turbine. Our beautiful state will be destroyed by this scam. Our politicians make fun of AOC but support the Green New Deal as much as she does.

Contact your legislator. Let’s try to save South Dakota from this destruction.

Gregg Hubner, Avon
