Correct, I never trusted his motives. Take a few minutes to look at the guy's history and you'll see why.

Making money is far from evil. Lying, cheating and/or stealing to make money is evil. There's a big difference. If he would have said, "I also plan to build a pipeline along this corridor to move water from one location to another" while he was crowing about his wonderful plan to build this wind farm, his reception would have been entirely different. It was a lie of omission, and he planned to use the land -- taken from its owners using eminent domain -- for huge personal gain. So you have lying AND stealing. Hence this scheme was evil.

I think the "technical problems" may be that he couldn't get the okay to build his pipeline along the same corridor. I never trusted his motives, and I remember reading a pretty detailed article on this shortly after he announced his grandiose plan.
