According to reports just received, Pioneer Green Energy sent letters to current lease holders in North East informing them leases allowing wind turbine construction on their property will not be renewed. The reason given is Pioneer’s belief there is not enough support in the current United States Congress for wind energy.
Following the recent FAA decision to deny extensions for construction permits, these letters indicate the North East wind turbine project may now finally be over.
Wind developers are facing the simple fact that without massive subsidies to the wind industry, there is no wind industry. It just doesn’t work.
UPDATE: Pioneer Green Energy stated the leases have been terminated, they are not waiting for them to expire at which time they would not be renewed. The leases have been cancelled.
