What Chandler didn’t say

To the Editor: Rep. Gene Chandler does not mention in his column that SB 365 contains a multimillion dollar subsidy for the Wheelabrator trash incinerator in Concord, now owned by Energy Capital Partners. Energy Capital Partners is a large out-of-state private equity firm.
Wheelabrator’s incinerator does not produce clean or renewable energy but rather turns resources into toxic smoke and ash, inefficiently scaring up a little electricity in the process. SB 365 would require ratepayers to subsidize this major source of pollution in Concord. Legislators should sustain the governor’s veto of this bad bill.
