When a business "slumps" because its government handouts are cut, that is a sign that its product is uncompetitive and overpriced in comparison to the available alternatives. That is the problem with wind & solar power everywhere. They both have their merits, and I am not opposed to their implementation IF & WHEN the technology improves to the point that they are competitive with coal, gas, & nuclear based on cost, efficiency, and reliability rather than government subsidies.

We need to learn from the failures of government subsidized energy in Spain, rather than repeat them.

If I wanted to build a parking lot along exit three, the outcry would be deafening! If I wanted to install a sign on a post visible from 91, the State wouldn't allow it. If I wanted to build a hotel to accommodate the Vermont tourism industry, I wouldn't be allowed any sort of sign and I would be required to plant pine and spruce trees between 91 and my hotel to hide it . But if I want to install a twenty acres of industrial solar panels, everyone says its beautiful?

Solar development on green spaces is industrial development And that includes farm land as well. Solar on already developed, such as roofs would not be industrial development as it is not the primary development. Solar on brown space such as a retired landfill, old mill site.....is a good use for solar.

"everyone says its beautiful?"
-nobody said it would be beautiful, just that it would make sense to have it there in that spot which is already developed and Not part of 'beautiful scenic Vermont'

///
who believes the biased crap in Forbes and Bloomberg? Oh right, the crazies who think the HUGE govt. subsidies Nukedom gets is A-OK and that nukes are 'safe' & 'reliable' etc.

You talk like you actually believe that solar is a viable alternative to nuclear. Better be careful what you swallow.
