NY board poised to OK $485M for solar plant amid questions | Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

       In something this big , there's a lot to question, but what is Solar City, the solar panel plant supposed to be at the heart of a revitalized Queen City ?   The Buffalo Billion is under scrutiny, but the project is already the subject of TV spots, so on it goes.

Its all part of the Cuomo corruption. They figured out that all those billions they give away of our tax money, to places like Lafargeville school and Davidson's, might as well make them here instead of China. Until they figure out they can't make them hear for anywhere near as low a price as they do in china. But at least the workers will have paid time off and won't be discriminated against because of simple rape and robbery convictions. Until the go out of business.

In other news, our RINO Senate rightfully left the statue of limitations in place to stop lying accusers from coming out of the woodwork long after they are adults. But instead they passed a law requiring hospitals to put up more stupid posters. Because our healthcare is not expensive enough, we need to force hospitals to do more useless things.

Here is an idea for you stupid RINO idiots. Pass a law that rescinds all laws requiring anything be posted in public. As if an "employee must wash hands" sign will convince them to wash their hands.

Too big to fail.

If you read Cuomo's new REV energy vision program, and then read the recent program being promoted by the NY PSC to encourage use of and subsidization of solar and wind projects in New York, it is no wonder at all why the State is willing to fund this solar production plant in Buffalo with taxpayer dollars. Realizing that one of people on the board is one time founder of Tesla Motors, is no surprise. Tesla is on the leading edge of developing energy storage systems for both individual energy projects and also the more controversial large scale commercial projects. Be prepared for the day when New York State Legislature gives legal authority to the PSC to ration consumers use of energy via the smart grid system being proposed at present. Tesla will be front and center of this process. This will amount to nothing less than State sanctioned forced conservation of energy. Imagine the potential for abuse and biased control of the market.

The wood plants around NYS can't stay open right now. There isn't enough demand for the power they make. How can a solar plant be any different? It is just like the government to waste money on this crap. The power from wind, and the sun, there is now way to store it long term. You can shut off oil, and wood plants, nothing is lost. It's just stored. Waiting for the need. I share many Green ideas. Just not the stupid over banked ones.

Went by the Solar City facility last week. It's very impressive, will make a nice self-storage facility or mushroom farm shortly. Hey, there's an idea, how about a cannabis farm?? And there were many cars of workers building Benito's Folly, probably more than will actually be employed for production.

That's $25.00 for every man, woman and child in New York State. We should each get a share of solarcity. Well, those of us who pay taxes anyway...
