Boondoggle In The Desert

What follows is my view, and only my view. I have NOT discussed this with any family members. My son is 110% OPSEC, as is his spouse, and we do not talk about anything not family and grandkids related.

Youngest son, and family, are at Dugway, UT, so I follow the news there closely. Their electrical power comes from a coal fired plant, with backup generators on site. Last year a range fire burned part of the power line, and the power was off for four days. So, maybe, this makes some sense.


Looking past all the “horrid” military stuff going on at Dugway, this is a Progressive wet dream.

     . Solar!!!
     . Small Business Set Aside *
     . Cut the legs from under a COAL FIRED power plant utility.
     . No chance for pesky outsiders watching you when you are
       inside a restricted access military base.



This firm qualifies as a “Small Business”?

OK, WSF, you are a cranky, cynical old fart with too much time on your hands. Once in awhile the government might get it right. After all, a stopped analog clock is right twice in twenty four hours. Bite me.

Nope, not EVEN small business... and stupid too... The batteries are going to cost a fortune and be one helluva mess to replace (which they will have to do in about 10 years).

May be the only place in the US where more toxic waste is another drop in the bucket.
