What’s The Cost?

How much waste that we can’t recycle will be left for us in the next 20-to-30-year period? What is the replacement plan/cost? How much will ratepayers be on the hook for that?

We’ve established that the initial cost per kilowatt hour for the wind farm project was a major difference. We’ve been told by our East Hampton Town supervisor two-tenths of a cent increase to our kWh, but in actuality it is an average of 22 cents per kWh.

We already are seeing the waste from the first 20 years plus of solar and wind. As Mark Mills from the Manhattan Institute would ask: “What is the cost? To the environment?”
