American Experiment’s Wind Energy Campaign Comes to Freeborn County

If you haven’t read American Experiment’s explosive report on wind energy, Energy Policy in Minnesota: The High Cost of Failure, you should. It documents the fact that around $15 billion has been spent on wind energy in Minnesota, with no discernible impact other than rising electricity rates. You can download the report as well as read a fact sheet summarizing its findings at MNGreenEnergyFails.com.

Freeborn County has been the scene of growing opposition to noisy, unsightly, unproductive and land-devouring wind turbine farms. It is also where the Center has placed billboards along Highways 90 and 35 promoting its wind energy campaign and MNGreenEnergyFails.com. This is what one of the billboards, located near a Cabela’s store on I 35, looks like at night:

If you haven’t already heard it, this is the Center’s “Gone With the Wind” radio ad, which has played all around the state of Minnesota:

Along with our public information campaign, the Center is informing legislators about the failure of Minnesota’s massive wind energy investment. On Tuesday of this week, John Hinderaker, John Phelan and Isaac Orr testified before the Minnesota House of Representatives’ Job Growth and Energy Affordability Committee. We presented a Power Point based on the Center’s “High Cost of Failure” report. Let’s hope Minnesota’s legislature learns an expensive lesson from its effort to mandate “green” electricity.

UPDATE: Much more here.
