We have a power plant on Cape Cod slated to be closed. Not only will our electricity be more costly, but they are also a huge taxpayer in my town. Not to mention employer.
There has been such a backlash against any updates or expansions to power plants and yet every one wants to plug in.
They think those stick on light switches come with the electricity built in.
They also want to put hundreds of windmills in our sound. Wind power has never lived up to it's expectations and when the private company who wants to build it goes belly up, the taxpayers will once again get stuck holding the bag. Not a huge issue on dry land, but when you toss in the corrosive properties of sea water, I see the potential for our own home grown clean-up expense.
