Backroom meetings reported at legislature of solar energy special interests

The Daily Haymaker is reporting that backroom meetings are underway at the legislature involving the solar energy special interests, the big utility companies, and a group of legislators.  Consumers are NOT represented even though it is consumers who will have to pay the freight for whatever scheme they come up with.
Solar special interests are notorious for demanding, and usually getting all sorts of special favors that cost ratepayers and taxpayers lots of money.  Solar and wind energy would go bankrupt quickly without such special favors because they cannot economically stand on their own two feet, and absent some spectacular technological breakthroughs are unlikely to ever do so.
The meetings are being coordinated by Rep. Destin Hall (R-Caldwell) and participants are sworn to secrecy about what they are discussing.  Consumers are likely to get screwed out of this, and possibly taxpayers, too.

Go Back

I agree. Get rid of those who support this crap.

North Carolina electric customers have already paid two billion dollars in rate overcharges from solar energy. We don't need any more of this crap or wind either. They are consumer ripoffs. Any legislator in their hip pocket needs to be tossed out of office. They are crooks.
