NY PSC Approves Upstate Utility's Sale To Spanish Wind Farm Company

Energy panel approves sale of Energy East to Iberdrola

By JAY GALLAGHER • Gannett News Service

ALBANY -- The state Public Service Commission voted unanimously this afternoon to sell two upstate New York utilities to Spanish-based Iberdrola SA as the company has pledged to invest $2 billion in wind-power projects in the state.

The approval means that Iberdrola will likely purchase Energy East, the holding company for NYSEG and Rochester Gas and Electric Corp. More...

"As part of the agreement, Iberdrola has to spend at least $200 million on new wind-generation facilities in the state within five years. Spokesman Robert Bellafiore said the company's plan is to spend $2 billion over that period."

Gee, it would be nice to be having some money like that being spent here in Potter County. But, <> we don't want no stinkin wind power here in this old county < /sarcasm >. After all... that would mean progress and jobs. What do we need that for. *sigh* :-\

Why is it that we MUST SELL AMERICAN COMPANIES TO FOREIGNERS?

Quite a few folks probably won't have jobs because of this.

And you call this PROGRESS?

Sorry bub, but many of us across Pennsylvania and across the country don't buy it..not one little bit of it!

Corporations like this get sold to foreign businesses because oue government slams the crap out of any U.S. citizen with taxres and red tape trying to run or buy a business. These people won't spend any money in Potter County because we don't produce anything of worth...you have to buy everything from China. Eddie...where was your telescope made?????

Wind turbines do not create jobs, other than a few short term jobs during construction. In only takes a few people to come around and check these machines, from time to time.
