Wind Wise Radio
Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 7:00-8:00 edt, WWR has a conversation with William P. Short, an independent consultant whose practice specializes in renewable energy in New England. The discussion includes the alphabet soup of RECs, PTCs, RPSs–that’s renewable energy credits, production tax credits, and renewable energy portfolio standards.
Idaho’s State Representative for District 32, Erik Simpson serves on the Environment, Energy, & Technology Committee and has twice offered a bill calling for a 2-year moratorium on wind energy development. WWR discusses wind energy policy in Idaho with him, including the effect of federal subsidies and the state’s Wind Energy Task Force.
WWR gets an update from Susan Crosthwaite, the chairman of Communities Against Turbines Scotland (CATS). CATS is the national umbrella group for individuals and regional groups working to protect Scotland from wind industrialization. There has been a lot going on in Scotland since WWR spoke with Struan Stephenson (August 12, 2012).
