In 2009, King submitted his original Highland Wind application to the Land Use Regulation Commission for his Somerset County project. The Project Cost and Financial Capacity section states that the company expected to receive $70 million from the U.S. treasury toward the project cost.
There is nothing illegal about King's seeking public money for his projects.

Yet, when it comes to wind development he would have run to Uncle Sam eagerly for tens of millions of dollars so his project could be successful.
