From what I understand, this project is subsidized via a nearly 2B$ DOE loan guarantee and putting the rate payers on the hook for expensive power does not meet that test. There
may be other subsidies that exist but are not yet announced.

Further, this project soaks up 1000’s of acres of land.

The claim of increasing employment is a joke as the
number of jobs is minimal.

I’m afraid this is just another expensive boondoggle that
the taxpayer and ratepayer ultimately has to pay for.
