Taxpayer Association of Oregon
Above is a photo of Texas’ windmills frozen at 21 degrees. Nearly 50% of Texas’ windmills froze contributing to historic blackouts in the state this month.
Both coal and natural gas couldn’t make up for the huge drop. Although many other factors also contributed, it must be noted that Texas became too reliable on wind because of generous wind power tax credit subsidies that use taxpayer dollars to inflate this unreliable power grid.
Oregon politicians recently moved to rid Oregon of coal power, and this month a NW Congressman offered a plan to abolish four NW dams.
Will the NW see such blackouts soon?
