The Wall Street Journal has recently quoted Hamptons resident Alec Baldwin in regards to a wind turbine he wishes to build on his propery.
“I want to build something that is environmentally forward-thinking,” he said. “I’m not building a satellite dish so I can watch the Knicks game,” Baldwin says.
Mr. Baldwin’s turbine is expected to cost $97,050, but that price will be offset by an anticipated $38,185 rebate from LIPA and a $17,660 federal tax credit, according to GreenLogic, a renewable energy company that prepared Mr. Baldwin’s application. LIPA has subsidized “backyard” wind turbines since 2009.
Do you think Alec Baldwin should get a wind turbine?
