I can't stop thinking about the mafia and wind (IVPV/UPC/First Wind) where Soros os concerned. A friend just sent me this and I agree:

I think George Soros enjoys power sufficient to put Obama in office, and to engineer the collapse of the world-wide fishing industry. George Soros is behind Ospraie the main investor in DeepWater Wind.

And, Soros is buying up farmland, flooded agricultural property. Carlyle, also Soros, appears to be pushing hard into aquaculture. Ospraie's focus is on commodities and energy, with billionaire investor Soros lurking then behind the Stalking Horse, DeepWater Wind.

See: Ospraie page 10 last entry is backing DeepWater Wind

Who is behind DeepWater Wind?
WSJ:
Deepwater Wind, also of Hoboken, is fresh from winning the right to develop a 385 megawatt wind project off Rhode Island's coast that will
supply 15% of the state's power. Deepwater was formed in May after the acquisition of offshore wind assets from Winergy Power LLC and First Wind
Holdings Inc. Its main shareholders are multibillion-dollar New York-based alternative-asset management firm D.E. Shaw & Co., Dwight Anderson's
Ospraie Management, a New York-based hedge fund that focuses on commodities and energy, and First Wind. First Wind is backed by private-equity
firm Madison Dearborn Partners and the private-equity arm of D.E. Shaw.

Enron Romm

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/19/enron-romm/

Most WUWT readers know Joltin Joe Romm by his trademark over the top rhetoric and his outright hatred of skeptics on parade every day at his Center for American Progress blog. Most of us have learned to ignore it, because he’s simply pushing a company brand.

Enron logo, designed by Paul Rand
Image via Wikipedia

That said, Master Resource has this interesting story today; it seems Joe was endorsing the nastiest energy company in history, as told by someone who was an employee, Robert Bradley Jr..

From Master Resource:

It is a common refrain in headlines at Joe Romm’s Climate Progress:

“Koch-Fueled Americans for Prosperity Takes Credit for Bullying GOP Lawmakers Into Climate Denial” (Emilee Piece: December 8, 2011);
“Koch-Fueled Denial Backfires: Independents, Other Republicans Split With Tea-Party Extremists on Global Warming” (Romm: December 2, 2012); and
“Koch-Fueled Americans for Prosperity Spends $2.4 Million on Solyndra Attack Ad (VIDEO)” (Stephen Lacey: November 28, 2011).
Smearing and innuendo is hardly fair play. But in this case, Joe Romm has something embarrassing to hide. Just as Koch Industries might be his least favorite company, Enron was his darling company.

Specifically, Romm was not only a cheerleader of Enron (Enron is “a company I greatly respect,” Romm would say). He was also an unpaid consultant and collaborator with the infamously fraudulent division, Enron Energy Services (EES), purveyor of energy efficiency service in (gamed) long-term contracts...

Mafia Ties to Wind Fraud in Italy Investigated

http://www.environmentalleader.com/2009/11/17/mafia-tied-to-wind-fraud-in-italy/

Italian finance police have arrested two prominent businessmen — including one with ties to a former investor in the Cape Wind project in Nantucket — in the wind energy sector on charges of fraud. Arrested were Oreste Vigorito, head of the IVPC energy company and president of Italy’s National Association of Wind Energy, and Vito Nicastri, a Sicilian business associate, according to the Financial Times…

--------------

From our research:

http://www.mresearch.com/pdfs/13.pdf

please note:

The last two entries were Enron owned. And EcoElectica is familiar AND WAS CREATED EXACTLY WHEN IVPC WAS CREATED to sell electricity generated by wind in Italy for profit.

Enron owned or operated 38 electric power plants worldwide:

Teesside (United Kingdom)—at the time of commission in 1992, at 1750 MW, was the largest Natural Gas Co-Gen plant in the world. Its on-time and under-budget completion put Enron Power on the map as an international developer, owner and operator.

Puerto Quetzal Power Project (Guatemala)—110 MW.
PQP LLC (Guatemala)—holding company for 124 MW Power Barge named "Esperanza".
