First Wind Rollins project in the Lincoln Lakes

I'm new - what should I do? -- Take a deep breath. There is lots of help available. A good place to start is the "Websites" tab on this page. It will take you to a listing of a number of local Maine wind groups. A good strategy is to review these sites and contact a group in your area of the state. There is often a good chance that members of that group will be in a good position to give you advice that is most relevant to the area in which you live. And by all means, please sign up as a member here. It's 100% free and you will be able to start communicating with CTFWP members right here - right away.

Wind power isn't making the big impact its champions claim

The Maine Renewable Energy Association released a white paper touting that Maine wind power in 2013 theoretically offset CO2 emissions equivalent to 94,000 vehicles. To state the obvious--wind power does not offset vehicle emissions; it offsets CO2 from power plants. And, in 2013 it barely offset 1% of New England's CO2 from power plants. Here are the real facts about the potential for Maine wind power to offset CO2:…See More

"Maine's transmission upgrade is almost done... Maine can transfer 1400 MW out of state. Maine has 431 MW from 254 turbines in place. 333 more 3 MW turbines will fill the plate. I read where 618 more turbines are planned in Maine. We need to…"

An update on North America's eagle slaughter by wind turbines

This fraudulent industry has voluntary regulations. With these voluntary regulations this fraudulent industry has reported very little of its eagle mortality. Yet since 1997 and including 2014 numbers about 31,000 eagle carcasses have been shipped…Continue

The voice of 28,600 dead eagles 1 Reply

The wind industry is currently asking for 30 year eagle killing permits. It is long overdue that the public took notice to the Putin style politics taking place with the Interior Department and the wind industry. Most of the public is not aware…Continue

    CMP Transmission Rate Skyrockets 19.6% Due to Wind Power

    Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?"  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

    Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

    We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
