Peter Sullivan of First Wind wants Utah to provide a PTC for his project.Dies he realize that his boss, First Wind Chairman and CEO Paul Gaynor,
is opposed to the Federal PTC? He has compared it to heroin in that renewable
energy developers have become addicted to it. He has said it is a crutch they
would be better off without. He has argued publicly for the elimination of the
Federal PTC saying it would result in greater regulatory certainty, increased
ability to plan long term, and the elimination of federal politics. (Google
"Gaynor PTC" for citations.)On the subject of PTCs I agree
with Gaynor. Utah ought not contribute to First Wind's unfortunate
addiction to corporate charity.Utah: Don't do it!
Thanks for publishing this...The conservatives in the State are
going die reading about this.They HATE clean, renewable energy.
