The UMPI Wind Turbine and Cover Up - READ THE PDF

Read about the disaster that is the UMPI wind turbine and the university cover up of the failure at the link below. It's high time the University of Maine keeps its promise and share full details of this experiment with the public. To know that the wind power it so fervently publicized failed and then decide not to report on the failurde is malpractice on the part of supposed educators. So educate us. Show us the money. Show us the electricity. Show us your math. Show us who decided to keep the public in the dark all these years. Show us who will be held accountable. The Maine PUC commissioner Kurt Adams, who jumped to First Wind, gave UMPI $50,000 for this. The PUC thus has a full right to conduct an investigation.

Otherwise, we learn nothing and repeat our mistakes.

UMPI Quietly Revises Its Wind Turbine Goal

http://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/umpi-quietly-revises-it...

Funny how they quietly dropped their annual KWH estimate from 1,000,000 to 700,000 with absolutely no fanfare, but were otherwise never shy about boasting of the turbine far and wide. They even did a roadshow to boast, accepted some sort of award for it and saw a movie get made about it. But when the 1,000,000 went to 700,000 KWH, not a peep. All the while, their projected $100,000 in annual electricity savings never changed. How does that math work again?

backtracking the url I get this:

"Domain: docs-api.ning.com is free for sale

another ruse to hide real data?

I e'mailed reporter and asked that he demand the real data or get it from Emera.

All I get from clicking the above link is a partial screenshot of the UMPI page,doesn't go any further than that--nothing really to read here at all.

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.
