NYC co-op: Green is easy with taxpayer $$$

March 23, 2009

Taxpayers have greened up the River Arts co-op in New York City, according to a report in today’s New York Times.

Daunted by the $400,000 price tag of a new solar power system for the co-op, its board balked at the 10 years it would take to recover the investment through energy savings.

Then, taxpayers came to the rescue — providing enough federal, state and city tax credits to reduce the net cost of the solar system to $10,000.

It would seem that the least River Arts residents could do would be to invite us taxpayer sugar-daddies over for a cocktail.

Steve Milloy’s new book Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them spotlights America’s new class — the green elites.
