03/08/2011: "Morris Bill Will Not Help Much In SJC"


Dear Editor:

I just want to make a fast comment on your story about HB 1081. . (Related Story)

Although it seems that people who wanted to put a few PV panels on a roof could benefit from this, the main focus of this bill has always been on co-gen and woodwaste.

This is a very complex topic. Morris could give a rip about small wind turbine systems for example. There is however, a lot of federal dollars waiting to be thrown at co-gen, thinning young timber stands, national energy security, blah, blah, ad infinitum.

These projects don't pencil out without a lot of subsidies, and the usual suspects see a nice opportunity to make lots of money on the latest federal pork project. This bill has limited benefits, and pretty much none for us here in SJC, where we have a real problem getting SWES (small wind energy systems) through the building department. No co-gen here!
