Gov. Cooper wants to drastically raise electric rates with offshore wind | Beaufort County Now | legislative RINOs set him up for it with NC Green New Deal - HB951

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Offshore wind turbines are by far one of the most expensive ways to make electricity, but that is exactly what leftwing Governor Roy Cooper is demanding in an executive order issued this month.  How much more expensive?  A good example is the newly built South Fork Wind Project off of Long Island.  The Long Island Power Authority is paying FOUR AND A HALF times MORE for  wholesale electricity from that offshore wind project than they pay for wholesale electricity from conventional electric generation sources.  Can our working class and middle class families afford that?

Offshore wind turbines are harmful to the environment.  Studies in Europe have shown that they slaughter large numbers of sea birds (from their whirling blades), and damaging to crabs and lobsters (form their underwater power cables), and harmful to marine mammals such as whales and dolphins (from their power cables).  They also produce toxic waste that is a disposal problem.  It is an assault on the environment to industrialize the oceans with these things.

The wind and solar scam has greatly raised electric rates wherever it has been imposed. It is why Germans now pay three times as much for electricity as we do in North Carolina, but thanks to Cooper and RINOs Berger and Moore, NC is now on the same lousy path. The state of South Australia had the lowest residential electric rates in the world when they used mostly coal and no wind or solar, but when Labour went to 50% wind and solar and destroyed all the coal electric plants, they had the highest residential electric rates in the world. Sen. Jim Perry is one of the greenie ideologues who has pushed this.
