Think about it Skelly. You can make this work and possibly salvage RICL. Farmers might feel the honor of a tram rail across their farmland. Chicago and points east would finally realize the beauty of Iowa from the air and hardly impact the ground beyond the 40'X40' footprint of each tower. The economic benefit to Spenser County Iowa for tourism might even be greater than the benefit of tens of thousands of acres of wind farms!
It’s kind of Ironic. Skelly starts his career selling distributed generation in Central America, something clean, wholesome, and well…making a difference. Know he finds himself working for billionaires attempting one of the greatest land thefts in America.
Yeah, Michael Skelly is a sort of the “Breaking Bad” of the energy world. He started as good, wholesome and clean Harvard grad and becomes a big business industrialist who will take whatever he wants from anyone in his was. In any case, the optimist in me still thinks there is some good in Michael Skelly.
He’s a Democrat for crying out loud. He wants to save the world but realizes for the benefit of the many, some farms need to be stepped with 200 foot towers. Yes, he’s made a series of bad decisions. He probably originally believed these powerline projects were actually for "clean" wind energy, but as time goes by, compromises have to be made. By know, he knows "clean" is a fantasy and a weak marketing point.
I suspect even now Michael Skelly is looking for the next venture after Clean Line finally goes down. Maybe I'm reading too much into a man I've never met, but I'd like to think he probably longs for the days in the Peace Corp when he felt as though he was truly making a difference. Good luck in your next adventure after Clean Line Energy Mike.
Jimmy G, on the other hand, the more I learn about him, the more I think he's an arrogant piece of ca-ca.
