Hello all,

I have been following your activities for a few years and it is great how you have been able to get information out to concerned citizens and make things happen.We may have the same problem here in South Carolina, where certain people and groups want to put up off shore wind turbines at North Myrtle Beach. The group is run by idiots and I am not concerned at the moment for they sem to be shooting themselves in the foot all of the time to try to make it happen here.

My company, BWE Group build the Cleanfield 3.5 KW VAWT turbine here in South Carolina. We have many installations, mostly in Canada and Europe. We have some here in the US but the Chinese turbines seem to win most of the deals even thought we are cheaper and Made In America. ????

We also build solar generators and solar street lights. I was thinking of donating a couple of these to  the Citizens task force use use as you see fit. You could raffle them off for donations or start projects that really work OFF GRID that can defeat the big wind brokers.

 

I can be reached at 803-347-5566 or beachwindenergy@aol.com

 

Regards,

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.
