Danish Wind Turbine Company That Received Over $50 Mill in Stimulus Lays off 800
yeah because the politicians wont pass the fricking PTC that has been passed every fricking year since the 90's and GWB championed.
the PTC not being passed is causing American power companies (Nextera (formerly Florida Power and Light), Xcel Power, etc)who were buying those wind turbine parts to put planned farms on hold for 2013 construction and causing that company to loose orders for the parts and not do the planned expansion they had in Colorado. So instead of the 4 factories they planned to build here (so they could build the whole construction process of the turbine in a centralized point in North America)they only have one and the rest of the parts have to be farmed out of country...
Just because of the goddamn PTC being used as a political football right now.
Thank you very much.
ETA 80 to 90...
