New England Democrats Not Buying Renewable Energy Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Mar 31, 2013, 11:50 PM

Aclipse New.jpgNew England is considered to be a stronghold for the Liberal-Progressive wing of the Democratic Party. Nonetheless, New Englanders show scant interest in buying renewable energy.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "establishing a New England market to buy renewable energy seemed a laudable goal when governors committed last year to bulk purchases of wind and solar power to knock down the price while reducing the region’s reliance on fossil fuels."

Renewable energy prices are higher than fossil fuel energy, while federal government and state regulations are hindering a boost of alternative energy resources.

The Houston Chronicle quotes Christopher Recchia, commissioner of Vermont’s Public Service Department, as saying that, "I don’t think we know how to do it."

Vermont environmental officials contend that biomass – energy from living or recently living materials – should be a form of renewable energy. Yet, Dan Estry, Connecticut's environmental commissioner, claims that biomass is "not cutting edge." Additionally, Connecticut legislation mandates that biomass and land-fill gas plants upgrade their environmental performance to become part of the state's portfolio of renewable power.

Please let Dan Estry know that our biomass system will take any feedstock other than nuclear waste, and thermal chemically process it with zero emissions, while giving a very healthy ROI in 5 years or less! This is guaranteed by the SACE Group who will financially insure the system to do exactly what we state it will do! First commercialized in 2003 and we have an international patent on the system, including in China. Please visit us at:
