"Here is the question I would ask. Maine does not need the power, so the construction, destruction , birds bats et al benefit only the investors, Reed & Reed and the out of state recipients of the power. I think it is good to remember that…"

Galloping Socialism

Governor Janet Mills and the legislature are heading towards expropriation  of CMP (Avangrid) 145 mile transmission line from Hydro Quebec to Lewiston.

During a six hour stipulation hearing before the PUC not one intervenor asked the commissioners about this, yet the Governor had categorically stated on 03/01 "importantly, the stipulation creates a new special purpose entity (euphemism for State Owned Enterprise) not CMP to build and operate this transmission line".

CMP…

CMP, Nextera and the Governor's Bill

The rejection of Northern Pass by New Hampshire regulators puts CMP's "Clean Energy Connect" back on the front burner. Even though CMP has publicly stated that their 140 mile direct current line from Coburn Gore to Lewiston has nothing to do with wind power it stretches credulity to not see a direct connection between Nextera's 133 turbine project and this high voltage transmission line.

Even though the LUPC recently rejected Nextera's petition to expand the expedited…

Nextera rulemaking petition

THIS IS IMPORTANT---IN FACT, CRITICAL

Nextera petitoning  LUPC to expand expedited permitting area. LUPC will consider 12/13. Questions

to stacie.r.beyer@maine.gov   557-2535

All need to be aware of this and hopefully agree that "the line in the sand" needs to be drawn here. There are few more scenic areas in the State of Maine than the drive from Stratton to the Coburn Gore on Rt 27, especially at peak fall foliage. Approval of this application…

UMPI windmill least important

UMPI windmill might work better if it were 150-200 ft taller. It was built in a land depression. The most important issue today is what the Maine Supreme Court will say about the Emera First Wind appeal which flies in the face of legislative intent. Why was legislation passed which forced our public utilities to split their generating from their distribution assets and now that those utilities are no longer ours,the PUC will allow Emera to acquire a financial interest in First Wind,enabling…

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://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?" https://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.” https://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.
