RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The goal behind any incentive is to get someone or society at large to do something that they would maybe not otherwise do on their own without some sort of encouragement. The idea is to make some desired direction or behavior more beneficial and/or profitable, so that when people make a decision they say, wow, look at this option over here and make their decision accordingly.
The BETC is one of the few, if not only incentive programs that actually functions as an incentive.
Yes, the BETC program costs money, because it is working. People are investing in development of wind farms and solar arrays because the BETC for the first time makes it profitable to do so.
What is wrong with the state putting its money where its legislative mouth is?
