Parker Gallant is a retired banker who has been hounding the Ontario energy establishment for some time, as I’ve previously written. His latest missive was a letter to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) complaining about their giving government money to support the private tax-exempt Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA). OSEA presented themselves as an interest group for the public, but what they really are is a front for the government itself and the wind industry.
Tom Adams Energy gives some background on the letter’s basis. In spite of the non-existent benefits and very large costs, many governments are pressing ahead with forcing taxpayers and ratepayers to fork over their money to this industry. I’m not much of a conspiracy nut, but at some point you have to start wondering if the whole thing is just one big scam, designed to make the rich richer and the powerful more powerful. This type of story is an indication of just how stinky the entire business of wind energy is.
