The letter from the EUTG continues the fallacy that any of the power from the proposed WTG's are delivered to Block Island. By contract and by law 100% of the power generated by the WTG's will be sold to National Grid. In addition 100% of Block Island's Power will be bought by BIPCo from National Grid and then resold to the rate payers on Block Island by BIPCO. The only thing saving us money and environmental benefit is the cable.
