Developers are in a sprint to get new wind farms up and running before Tuesday, when the federal wind production tax credit will disappear ... After that, the nation’s wind-farm building will be at a virtual standstill."

I questioned the motives of Iberdrola on facebook months ago when that wind farm in Groton first appeared. In the recent discussion we had on wind farms, lots of people seemed to notice the urgency with which these big energy companies are trying to set up shop all over the state. Here's your reason. Towns selling out their land it's future for a few bucks in tax revenue. :(
