From the Canada Free Press is an article talking about how ridiculously expensive the Block Island Offshore Wind Project is and how it is not really a viable solution. It cost more than 10 times more than a gas plant that would supply the same amount of energy, but more reliable and without the transmission problems.

Anyone out there think this is a good price? I think our Emera prices are in the 6-8 cents kwh right now, at least according to my bill. At a rate of increase for 20…Continue
