State gives a bit on Iberdrola

What a misleading headline in today's D&C. Don't let the headline fool you. The PSC has NOT made their final recommendation regarding the Iberdrola takeover. There are still many conditions to be agreed upon by both the PSC and Iberdrola before the purchase of Energy East. Here is the link to the article:

Make sure to read the online comments after the article - you can easily login to the D&C website if you would also like to comment.

To Quote Sen. Charles Schumer
in todays's D&C, "Done correctly, this merger can reduce costs and make New York a leader in providing clean, cheap wind power."

CHEAP? Who is Chuck Schumer kidding? What is so "cheap" about the turbines in Prattsburgh and Cohocton? hmm...... At approx $2.5M EACH, I hardly call that cheap! Let's see, last count there was approx 37 or 38 "cheap wind power" turbines -
Mr. Schumer, do the math! Mr. Schumer, why do only 5 of the turbines have blades? Mr. Schumer, will they ever turn? Mr. Schumer, who paid for the turbines on top of our hills? In other words, where did the $$ come from? Mr. Schumer, exactly who will benefit from the "cheap wind power". Mr. Schumer, what happened to our pristine views? Mr. Schumer, have you driven on Main Street in Naples heading south lately? Again, I ask, what is so cheap about wind power?

If you have not yet taken the time to write the PSC to voice your opinion, decision time is close, in fact, sorry for the short notice but the deadline to voice your opinion in Thursday, July 3rd.
