AG seeks emergency order against Twin Cities wind energy company

Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal -- Minnesota's attorney general went to court Wednesday seeking an emergency order stopping a Twin Cities company from selling wind turbines to Minnesota farmers.

About 100 farmers have complained to the attorney general's office about Excelsior-based Renewable Energy SD (RESD), the Star Tribune reported.

Last month Attorney General Lori Swanson filed suit against RESD, alleging that it swindled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Minnesota farmers. She accused RESD and its owner, Shawn Dooling, 46, of failing to provide wind turbines or providing wind turbines that didn't work.

In January, the attorney general also noted that Dooling has spent more than $1 million over the past several years for luxury automobiles, including two Bentleys, a Lamborghini, a Ferrari and two Audis.

Some think farmers are dumb and they are dead wrong. If those farmers had seen Dooling with one of those luxury cars they would have smelled the rat fink straight away.

I don't know why I should surprised how many people are ready to crucify green energy but then are falling all over themselves to give the fossil fuel industry a free pass.

Big Oil doesn't need your help.

Do you work for Big Oil, @wayoung56? If you do, you should let everyone here know and if you don't why are you so quick to defend them?

Big Oil spends plenty on lobbyists. They don't need your help.

Too bad @Dragnet and @clermont40miles are never this enthusiastic in their outrage when it's a fossil fuel company.

Biased much?

Great reporting by the media. Focus on little David but totally ignore Big Oil Goliath who's lighting cigars with $100 bills.

Not sure the AG needs to get involved. Individual property owners should pursue action.

Dooling is just pout to make his fortune and then take a walk and leave all farmers with windmills that are no good.
