As an update to yesterday’s post on Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s address on renewable energy, here is a brief excerpt from the Boston Globe coverage:

“Let me tell you that I have heard enough about Evergreen — or Solyndra for that matter. We are not always going to score. But we are never going to score if we don’t get in the game,” Patrick said in prepared remarks. “Whether we like it or not, there are going to be winners and losers when it comes to clean energy in the 21st century … . Make no mistake about it: I want Massachusetts to be a winner.”  …

Patrick’s proposals were applauded by the Alliance for Business Leadership, a non-partisan group of executives and investors in Boston.

“Business knows that expanding our renewable domestic energy supply is great for the economy,” the Alliance said in a statement.
