Our 2015 Wind Energy Policy is in Shambles
Since 2008, Obama’s wind energy plan and its implementation has been and remains a disaster for our country. His inept energy policy rates on the same level as his inept policies on immigration, military preparedness and foreign relations.
We would be smart to learn about the future of our wind turbines by examining Germany’s experience with their wind turbines. Germany’s decision to rely on wind and solar energy has resulted in sky rocketing consumer electric bills and electric grid instabilities. In 2016, Germany will be faced with a decision to either carry out major repairs or replace 28% of their, mid 1990 vintage, wind turbines.

We need to stop Government tax subsidies for new and existing wind turbine installations. The U.K. has reduced their government subsidies for Wind Turbines – so should we!
