Even playing field

In response to “Taxpayers Should Not Pay For Clean Energy Push” which appeared in the April 25 - May 1 issue of North Country This Week: Ut was interesting to note that only wind power was mentioned as a recipient of tax payer financing. Electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrids owners can collect up to $7,500 dollars in taxpayer cash. People who install solar arrays can also get taxpayers subsidies. These forms of conservation would not survive or would be adopted at a lesser rate if not subsidized. Should we stop subsidies to EVs and solar farms as well as wind power or should we put all three forms of alternative energy on an even playing field with the proper incentives?
