Solar House near Merrickville Ontario CA
 Ontario's new Progressive Conservative government is cancelling 758 renewable energy contracts, in what it says is an effort to reduce electricity bills in the province.

Another Voice: State siting statute is rigged against local communities

From the Buffalo News

By Dennis C. Vacco
Article 10, a state statute enacted in 2011 was created to centralize the
decision-making process regarding the siting of large alternative energy projects.
The law was designed to create the illusion that local governments would still have
a voice in decisions which would affect land usage in their towns.
Unfortunately, the Article 10 siting process is rigged against local governments.

Governor Cuomo ~
What is good enough for downstate
is good enough for us.

There is a petition being circulated concerning Governor Cuomo’s unfair Renewable energy policy. The petition describes how Governor Cuomo applies a double standard when it comes to Upstate versus Downstate.

To minimize adverse visual impacts from offshore wind development, Cuomo promised wealthy long Island beachfront residents that wind turbines would be so far offshore that, “Not even Superman standing on Montauk Point could see these wind farms .”

But for Jefferson County and other upstate communities Cuomo made no such promise to protect our beautiful Lake Ontario coastline .This is unjust, unethical and just plain wrong.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s renewable energy policy has to be fair and equal for all - including working upstate middle class residents.


The short  video clip below shows Cuomo giving his Superman speech during his state of the state address Jan.10,2017.

Video transcript: I'm calling on LIPA to approve a 90-Megawatt wind farm enough power to support 50,000 homes. They will not be visible from the beach they will be 30 miles southeast of Montauk.
Not even Superman standing on Montauk point could see these windfarms.
