Private Contractor Rakes In Millions From Taxpayers

Dollar Bills SC Private Contractor Rakes in Millions from Taxpayers

GOLDEN, Colo. – The federal government’s dream of a renewable energy empire hinges on a scrubby outpost here, where scientists and executives doggedly explore a new frontier.

If you live outside Colorado, you probably haven’t heard of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory – NREL for short. It’s the place where solar panels, windmills and corn are deemed the energy source of the future and companies who support such endeavors are courted.

It’s also the place where highly paid staff decide how to spend hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars.

And the public pays those decision-makers well: NREL’s top executive, Dr. Dan Arvizu, makes close to a million dollars per year. His two top lieutenants rake in more than half a million each and nine others make more than $350,000 a year.

  1. Taxpayers unite! How about going with me, and my team, to Colorado and razing the "scrubby outpost" to the ground? It is time to eliminate liberal influence in the United States Of America.

    All these "Green" operations are a farce!! The windmills can't be regulated properly, and they chop up birds like crazy; you'd have to have mllions of them to run a city the size of Los Angeles, and as for Solar panels, they don't work when it's cloudy, folks, and they'd yet to find a battery that decently works to stor solar energy. Another bust! e have enough oil and natural gas to last us the next two hundred years at least, but Obama's too busy making sure the UN gets to take us all over per "Agenda 21" after he runs the country broke.
