The Postillion Nothing Sacred but the Truth GOVERNMENT DECISION TO BE A WINDY AFFAIR? Since the early '90s coal-based energy has been abandoned in favour of cleaner alternatives. However, almost thirty years later Salia is somewhat lacking behind in green energy. Several government coalitions have throughout the years claimed technologies and alternatives to be either underdeveloped or not financially rewarding (read lucrative). As a result much of our energy, such as natural gas and nuclear energy, is being imported. Import implies costs, while investments for future energy production are getting postponed. The presence of the Green-Liberals in both national and sub-national governments seems to finally change all that. Christian Democrat leader Alfred Hijns - claiming his party took the initiative - is drafting new legislation with Green-Liberal Thomas de Kooster, loosening regulation and providing subsidies to aid the renewable energy sector. Salia has already up to seven wind turbine parks in the Gothic Sea, ranging in between 200 and 300 MW. Politicians, citizens and experts believe hydroelectricity and future investments in wind turbines and solar energy could drastically increase a surplus of renewable energy and lower costs in the long term due to diminishing energy imports.
