Do WEPCO's  so-called "green" power plants include....

.....its dams on the Menominee River
.....its pulp mill sludge combustion units in Wisconsin which have
       been the target of citizen group litigation

??????


Will WEPCO's subsidiary, MINERGY's human waste-fired power plant
to be built in SW Detroit, be considered "green power"????   Gee, I
wonder why they don't build human waste-contaminated waste-fired
electric power plants where all of these WEPCO executives live???

Does WEPCO own or buy power from demolition waste fired combustors
and trash burning plants in Wisconsin??

Be careful, folks, because "green power" may end up being the
latest form of "green-washing" as in "brain-washing".....

Sagady's recommendation on "green power"   ----find out
exactly where and how such power is generated and then
make your decision on its acceptability....
