Yep its to bad those windmills arent made here in the US- US/ made=American jobs.( with ( our) US taxpayer dollars. With all those billions
being spent out there.

Instead of inriching china further etc- and giving more jobs to the chinese.( payed for by American/ US taxpayers.


O bamama & friends know how to spend it very well( other ppls moneys)- but obviously dont know what the hell there doing.

County rejects energy-saving stimulus

The Associated Press
GILLETTE -- A county in the heart of Wyoming's energy producing region is rejecting federal money to help government and nonprofits reduce energy consumption.
It was announced recently that Wyoming would get $9.6 million in federal money to help make local government buildings around the state more energy efficient.
Campbell County Public Works Director Kevin King said the county in the energy rich Powder River Basin of northeast Wyoming originally had applied for more than $68,000 to help replace two aging boilers in the county courthouse.
But King said he decided not to accept the money after a U.S. Energy Department official was rude and demanding with county employees over the phone. In addition, he said the paperwork and red tape that comes with the money was too cumbersome.
King said the boilers aren't that inefficient and have several years of life left.

Bigger is better?
By JEFF GEARINO - Southwest Wyoming bureau
ROCK SPRINGS -- The developer of a proposed wind farm on White Mountain has scaled back the probable number of wind turbines in favor of a larger turbine size for the project.

I maybe mistaken but i think Wy just passed a law to tax wind energy here.

Lawmakers also rejected a law trying to be passed here- where no permit would be required to carry concealed weapons in Wy( open carry is still ok)
Edit- yep looked it up online.
