Has this Carbon Harvest company ever operated a plant like this before? What assurance is there that it won't go belly up again?

Are public grants being used for this project?

Did the District seek offers from other firms too to get the best deal for us?

This is a good development, I hope the armchair whiners can't get in their way.

Time will tell. Many are hopeful that the new renewable technologies developed will be in the forefront of VTs energy future, provide employment for VTers, a part of VTs economy which stays in VT, and an example for the nation.

Does this say something about what is wrong with the US and why we can't compete with the rest of the world? The contract was signed in Aug 09 and there is an existing 250 KW generator in place and probably the wells on the landfill already exist as part of a methane control system. It could have been running since Aug 09, except for the bureaucrats having control of permits. A 310 KW generator could be installed in less than one month, but we are talking about pushing thing into 2011 if the bureaucrats don't come up with the permits.

Remember, we build the Empire State Building in one year and it has been 9 years and 7 billion spent on paper studies, legal actions, permits and other bureaucratic cost for what is still since 9/11 a hole in the ground. How do we expect to compete in the world and maintain a top level standard of living.
