Green energy’s hidden defect

It’s no secret that Connecticut’s Dynamic Dans, Gov. Malloy and energy commissioner Esty, are enthusiastic advocates of “green” energy. They like wind and solar power, and dislike production that relies on coal and oil. Diverting somewhat from the green throng, they also speak approvingly of hydroelectric power — probably because the vast resources of Hydro-Quebec are within reach of the power grid that serves Connecticut.

But as they tout the “cheaper, cleaner, and more reliable energy future” they envision for Connecticut, they at least should serve up the data in a forthright manner. This they did not do when they announced contracts with a solar power plant in Lisbon, Conn., and a wind-power project in Maine.
