Tom Wolf has joined hands with special interests to promote a costly solar ripoff scheme that would have Pennsylvania copy the failed German Energiewende.
Yesterday, Tom Wolf’s DEP put out a news release asking for comments on a proposed solar ripoff plan forged hand in hand with the help of the usual suspects; PennFuture, the Clean Air Council, the Delaware Riverkeeper, SolarCity, et al. Entitled “Pennsylvania’s SolarFuture Plan,” the document identifies PennFuture and Tesla/SolarCity as two of 15 “committed partners.”
This solar ripoff tries to make the case for getting 10% of Pennsylvania’s electric power from solar energy in 2030 by forcing its subsidization across the board by ratepayers and taxpayers. It’s an outrageous proposal intended to ape New York State and Germany where electricity prices have skyrocketed with nothing to show for it in terms of reducing emissions.
