Do the folks in Ohio realize that EDP Renewables is owned by the People's Republic of China? It's bad enough they collect interest on our $20 trillion debt. But they also put us into yet deeper debt by taking advantage of the moronic crony subsidies along with all the other leeches in the wind industry.
On one side are the wind-energy industry, environmentalists and companies that want to increase the supply of clean power. On the other are some of the neighboring residents, along with a patchwork of conservative-leaning groups.
The state’s wind farms are all in northwestern Ohio, but regulators have approved others just outside of the Columbus metro area, with projects planned for Crawford, Champaign, Hardin and Logan counties, and still more in the pre-development stage.
So the debate about wind energy could be coming to your neighborhood, even if you live nowhere near northwestern Ohio.
