Mr. Belisle I have four simple questions on wind project

Saint Albans Messenger; October 1, 2016

I read with interest Mr. Belisle’s letter to the editor (“Scott wrong to pander to state’s anti-wind minority… 9/27/16). I have 4 simple questions for Mr. Belisle.

1). Is there proof that anti-wind is a “vocal minority” in Vermont?

2). It is stated that “Swanton Wind will result in a gain of $ 4 million in wages for Vermonters and a gain of $392,000 in state tax revenue during project construction. Will these $4 million in wages continue for the life of the project (20-25 years) and will the jobs really go to Vermonters or out-of-towners? 3). Would the energy be sold in Vermont or out of Vermont? There’s no benefit to the environment in or the people of Vermont if the power is being sent out of state.

4). “IF” renewable energy credits (which is how developers make their money) were required to be sold only in Vermont, would this project be a viable one?
