Now that we have the details of the e-gaming proposal it’s time to find out just how much it costs to produce electricity using wind energy. The Guardian should file a Freedom of Information request to get the cost details of government wind farms and how high are our losses to date. When Islanders find out the true cost of producing electricity using wind energy they may whistle a different tune.

The P.E.I. Energy Corporation gets revenue from Maritime Electric, however they are losing money every year because of the high cost of producing wind energy.

The media and opposition MLAs have not asked the hard questions to government about the true cost of operating all these wind farms so some Islanders still believe we are making a profit.
