Yesterday, I wondered aloud about why a Texas energy project funded by the Department of Energy through the Recovery Act was listed as being based in Bainbridge Island, WA. As loyal commenter “Frank” pointed out, it’s because they are indeed based in Bainbridge Island, WA, right there on good ol’ Winslow Way. Of course, the Seattle Times had already picked that up, but what am I supposed to do…read the news?
Anyway, it’s $350 million over 8 years, which is a lot of Bainbridge Island ferry passes, if you know what I mean. But again, what it does is add another notch to the central Puget Sound’s belt of carbon capture leadership. We should get all the related local folks together and see what sparks.
