I just received the official report of employment at Bloom Energy in Delaware. 230 folks are employed as of June 30, 2015. It was reported by the local newspaper in Delaware that as of September 30, 2014, 207 people were employed at the site. This means 23 employees have been added in nine months.
Under the BLOOMDOGGLE agreement the state signed employment as of September 30, 2014 was to be 300, and is to be 600 as of September 30, 2015.
This means Bloom has to hire 370 people in three months. I really doubt they will be able to do this. They were unable to emit a maximum of 773 pounds of CO2 per megawatt hour at their coastal zone site in Delaware as they promised under penalty of perjury in their permit application.
The BLOOMDOGGLE in just the First State so far is as follows:
Less than half the jobs promised
More CO2 emissions per megawatt hour than was permitted
Hundreds of thousands of pounds of solid waste with sulfur that was hidden and never permitted
Over $82 million in subsidy from the poor and middle class ratepayers of DELMARVA Power to Bloom
Two members of the Governor’s cabinet have resigned
Bloom stealthily revised their product specification sheets on carbon emissions
Between September 2014 and September 2015 Bloom was supposed to add 25 jobs a month in Delaware. They added 23 jobs in 9 months. Bloom is just pathetic. I am proud I called the BLOOMDOGGLE from day one.
Now the forces for good and justice just need to bring this to its logical conclusion with the removal of those ugly boxes from the protected coastal zone of Delaware. Bloom needs to pay a billion dollars in war on carbon reparations. It is as simple as that we just want unconditional surrender.
