While it is amazing, Econgen is investing millions and if you look at their web site, http://www.ecogen-energy.com/ what is missing is current information. Their information was updated January 2007. I guess Econgen is spending all the money and investing in legal fees
Favorite parts The local town officals it may above their ability to understand and comprehend .Gosh may be the real meaning is it is above ecogen ability to understand and comprehend local rural communities do not want your industrialization.
This is a case it is important to think global but act local shows that people have a voice and belief to determine their future.
Home rule worked for Alleghany County, Maryland, and it looks like US Wind Force received the message .but then again they will blame it on site certificates but perhaps requiring a $150,000 deposit of each turbine to decommission may be the reason why the project will not move forward.
This plea to remove local control is the same reason why Big Tobacco hates local clean indoor air ordinance. They cannot control the situation.
Take it to the state capitol and eliminate local opposition and it is full stream ahead.
