Let's all have a FIT or should we?

I was reading about Alberta and their plans to develop a Feed in Tariff system for renewable energy similar to that currently in place in Ontario. Talk about paradigm shift from a petroleum rich region. How will they justify an increase of 4-5 times current energy costs to taxpayers?

Some are saying that at least it is locked in, so that we will be able to depend on a constant price. So 4-5 times current costs for the next 20 years. Wait a minute...

So long for now,
