If not now, when and how?2007-11-16 13:56:01joeh

I attended the meeting Tuesday in Norborne. I agree we must start looking for ways to protect our environment, but was struck by the opening remarks of the AECI representative stating our need for electricity was growing 100 megawatts a year. AECI does not have the capacity to meet the needs of its consumers without building some form of generating facility. They are currently involved with three wind farms in NW Missouri that total 157 megawatts. We don't currently have the technology or the capital to change to renewable energy in the next 5-10 years, so I ask, if not this power plant, what kind, where and when? Your electric bills are going to double in the next few years even if they build this plant, a switch to renewables would quadruple your electric bill. Who's ready for that?
