U.S. Wind Energy Prices Continue to Fall

We currently have five wind turbines installed off the coast of Block Island amounting to our entire "offshore" wind generation. There is a "pipeline" to build out 24,564 MW of new offshore wind across 13 states. While this sounds HUGE, let's try and convert some of these outlandish sounding numbers into something we can all understand.The total electricity production in the US for 2017 was 3.82 TRILLION kw/h from all sources. That was divided up between Coal 33%, Gas 33%, Nuclear 20%, and…See More

"I was in Iowa in June. Believe me...they get it! Wind turbines  are scattered everywhere and just like here, they don't move! There, everyone gets to see it, so it is very difficult to sell someone a different story!"

Wind power, jobs and the gullibleWe often hear wind power is generating lots of jobs for Iowans. How true is this? Wind power is subsidized by taxpayers, because it cannot support itself or the jobs it claims without subsidies in the form of tax credits. This means we, the taxpayers, are paying for the jobs claimed by wind power. Check out the Production Tax Credit (Iowa Code 476C) if in doubt.Let’s be honest and call subsidies what they are — a giveaway — paid for by us, the taxpayers. How…See More

Wind Gives Way to Solar Power and Natural Gas After Federal Subsidies End

The Canada Free Press published an article reiterating all the facts we already know. 

1. Federal subsidies are due to run out in 2020 as long as our screwed up government does not extend them again.

2. From 2000 to 2017 the…

My dear Eskutassis, The best time to vent your fury IS EVERY TIME THEY HAVE THEIR PUBLIC BS MEETINGS. June 4, my 76th birthday, God willing, is the 26th anniversary of Tiananmen Square. Let it be the re-birth of free speech, just as 1776 was the first birth day of this Republic.

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.
