Democrats Scrambling After Energy Developer Cancels Wind Contracts
President Joe Biden just took a MAJOR loss.
Orsted, a massive energy developer, decided to pull out of a deal with Maryland’s Public Service Commission, officially ending one of the state's Democrats' favorite go-green initiatives.
As you've probably picked up on by now, when Biden and "green energy" appear in the same sentence, ordinary Americans are probably going to get screwed while the liberal elite push what benefits them.
The CEO of the American division of Orsted, David Hardy, delivered a recent statement confirming the news.
"Today’s announcement affirms our commitment to developing value creating projects and represents an opportunity to reposition Skipjack Wind, located in a strategically valuable federal lease area and with a state that is highly supportive of offshore wind, for future offtake opportunities," said Hardy.
Carter Elliot, spokesman for Maryland Gov. Wes Moore, released a statement on Orsted’s recent decision.
"Governor Moore is disappointed by the news of Orsted’s repositioning of the Skipjack Wind project, an effort that has the capacity to impact the lives of so many Marylanders. However, he will continue to work with legislators, Maryland’s federal partners, offshore wind developers, and advocates that see Maryland’s potential in order to build a system to help Maryland reach the state’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2035," said Elliot.
Some are saying this project was a total waste of time and never feasible to begin with in the first place.
The president of the American Coalition for Ocean Protection, Dave Stevenson, said, “when you have bad news like this repetitively, it's a clear message that this is not ready for primetime. These projects should just stop. Let's take another path as to how we're going to generate electricity down the road.”
Many others, like Republican Rep. Andy Harris, are happy about Orsted’s decision.
"This is welcome news for the many watermen and residents in Maryland who have made it clear they don’t want foreign-owned offshore wind companies industrializing their coasts," Harris said in a recent statement.
No matter how you feel about the Skipjack Wind project, one thing is clear:
Joe Biden's push for green energy isn't saving our country, it's destroying it.
