Here’s another slap in the face for all you US taxpaying, “buy American – so we have more jobs” folks out there in Neverland: US based Duke Energy is building two wind plants in US based Texas utilizing 87 massive turbines from Germany based Siemens and 84 massive turbines from Japan based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Oh, by the way, construction is to begin in December of this year just in time for Duke to cash in on the millions currently available under the Federal government’s 1603 Grant, which is, hopefully, to expire at the end of the year. Oh, in case you’re not aware … the 1603 grant money they’re handing out is yours. Well, it used to be.
Again, how stupid do the politicians think we taxpayers are? Don’t bother to answer.
Again, when will this nonsense stop? When we replace the current crop of self-serving politicians with individuals truly dedicated to protecting our interests.
When they tell you it’s for your own good, suggest that, since it’s your money, you would prefer to make the choice.
Go ahead … contact them. It’ll be fun.
