    Dutch to Get World's First Subsidy-Free Offshore Wind Farm

    The public participates in infrastructure risk and the government institutes a carbon tax.
    Who said obvious is hard ?

    We'll see how it goes in the US once the psychopathic traitor and his cronies are taken out with the rest of the sewage.

    I've always said the German system for encouraging renewables is now a roadmap to subsidy-free wind and solar. Give renewables the tiniest leg up by flipping the tradition and giving them 24/7 grid priority at the wholesale level. Guarantee them a reasonable rate of payback for a set amount of time and you'll quickly have nothing but renewables.

    I'm so sick of states setting mandates 20 years out. All the hard work can be handled in about a decade with very little public investment, let the market do the work.
