--will this be like other "green energy" projects where the tax payer does the bulk of the funding on it???

Virtually every sector of the energy industry receives substantial subsidies and incentives. Certainly the oil and gas sectors have benefited greatly from accelrated depreciation and other subsidies that are estimated at about a billion and a half dollars annually in Canada. The nuclear industry was massively subsidized to get built.

We can debate whether all of these subsidies and incentives are needed or if they do what they are designed to do but if we are going to have a fair conversation about green energy subsidies it does need to happen in the context of what other segments are receiving.

What is the status on this project?
