After careful consideration, Mr. Janson decided that the project will not promote the general good of the state. Now enter the rogue representatives and Joint House Resolution J.H.R. 64. The point of this resolution is to help wind developers have their way at ruining the state's ridgelines, while promoting an obsolete technology that can realistically do very little. They hope we will suspend our disbelief long enough to surreptitiously go about their devious plan.

....Britain's networks that quietly transmit and distribute energy are the envy of Europe with a reliability rating of 99.98 per cent for distribution and over 99.99 per cent for transmission. It seems reasonable to surmise that this reliability would fast go into reverse with large numbers of micro solar and wind generators feeding in unpredictable small amounts of power.
