Wants answers from Clean Line
Rock Island Clean Line claims this power line from Iowa to Illinois will save Illinois residents money, but they lack specifics. Hans Detweiler speaks in vague terms intentionally and refuses to answer Illinois residents’ specific questions. As an Illinois resident and a stakeholder in this project, I would appreciate some answers from Hans.
How much will this electricity cost from RICL? An economic study recommended by RICL’s Facebook page forecasts wind energy will be competitive at $60-$70 per megawatt hour. Does RICL anticipate a price increase of more than 100 percent?
If RICL will forecast a price of electricity from this power line, is that price before or after the $22/MWh Production Tax Credit (PTC) given by the government to wind energy companies? Is this project viable if the government does not renew the PTC?
