Windmill idea just liberal feel-good talk  

Credit:  Letters | Jul 01, 2021 | www.nj.com ~~

I read Gov. Florio’s opinion column on wind energy (”Former Gov. Florio: It’s an idea whose time has come,” June 24).

I would like to have seen links to the cost-benefit analysis sites he mentions. With the cost-benefit analysis, is reliability part of it?

Judging by Bayonne’s windmill, it’s more of a sculpture garden than an energy source.

Then there’s useful life, replacement costs, and maintenance costs.

When Gov. Florio mentions jobs, I think he means onetime construction jobs. After initial construction, there’s nothing for the factory to do until replacement is needed.

To me it sounds like liberal feel-good policy.

Carl Hoetzl, Bayonne
