Sabal Trail solar and wind misinformation

OK, I’ve looked, and it’s the same kind of disinformation Georgia Power used to spout about you’d need to clear … Continue reading Sabal Trail solar and wind misinformation

Solar learns faster than any other energy source –Citi GPS

SpectraBusters seeks new Allies and Board members

Especially since the Army Corps issued its permit for Sabal Trail last summer, Florida is swarming against that fossil fuel invader like an ant bed stirred by a 600-mile-long pipeline stick.
