In his Saturday letter, “Small businesses for clean energy,” Tim Gaudette touts a small-business advocacy group’s conclusion that government clean energy investments are important to small business owners.

He says higher energy costs are one of businesses’ biggest problems. So how can clean energy help when it will increase energy costs even more (the price of solar power is running about three times that of gas plant power)?

I don’t see how skyrocketing electric bills are going to help anybody, consumers or businesses.

  1. The best thing governments, federal state and local, can do for small businesses is to keep their noses out of it.
