Utah exporting money, power

According to an article printed in the Deseret Morning News on Dec. 21, the wind farm planned for the Milford area will receive tax subsidies from the state of Utah to the tune of $4.3 million. Since all of the electric power from this subsidized project will be sent to California, it is akin to exporting Utah money, by wire, to the Golden State.

In my letter (Readers' Forum, Dec. 26) I pointed out that Utah was exporting wind and water resources to California via wire transmission lines. What I forgot to mention is that Utah will also be exporting money via these same wires.
