Wind Industry Titan Soaks Up Billions in Tax Subsidies [Michigan Capitol Confidential]

Wind Industry Titan Soaks Up Billions in Tax Subsidies [Michigan Capitol Confidential]:

 "A renewable energy company that is worth $60 billion — and hasn’t paid federal income taxes for the last seven years — is among the country’s largest recipients of federal subsidies. It’s also suing a small Michigan township as it seeks to take advantage of a state law for its financial gain.

NextEra Energy, based in Florida, has filed lawsuits in Michigan against Ellington Township and Almer Township seeking to compel the municipalities to allow its wind turbine towers to be erected."
