Minnesota Taxpayers Stuck Footing The Bill For Wind They Can’t Use or Sell

So much for Green Energy saving us money!!! Badeet, badeet, thats Liberalism folks!!!

Taxpayers in Minnesota ended up paying $70 million more than they needed to for electricity in 2011 because of “green” energy mandates, according to the Minnesota Rural Electric Association (MREA).

“Taxpayers already pay a high price to subsidize wind energy through billions in federal grants, loan guarantees and tax credits that prop up the ‘windustry,’” Tom Steward writes for the Minnesota State News.

“Now the bill for state renewable energy mandates is coming due with hundreds of thousands of Minnesota electric co-op and utility customers picking up the tab,” he adds.

A $70 million dollar tab, that is.
