As shown on the following wind resource map, Maine's wind is indeed poor to fair. Yet the pocket-lining hucksters take us for fools and tell us otherwise. Angus King told us "Maine is the Saudi Arabia of Wind".

While we are wayyyyyyyyyyyy below the top in terms of wind power, we are # 1 in the nation in Seasonal Homes.
Although tourism is a cornerstone of our economy, the wind developers' plans would fundamentally transform the character of the Maine vacation experience by industrializing the areas that currently draw vacationers seeking natural beauty and quietude.
