First Wind, Emera close joint venture deal

Massachusetts-based First Wind Holdings and Nova Scotia-based Emera Inc. have closed a $361 million deal to jointly own and operate wind energy projects in the Northeast through a new company called Northeast Wind Partners.

Wind energy

I need to ask a question. What evidence is there that industrial turbines take more energy to run than they provide? This is a broad scope question looking for empirically solid answers.

Aloha, thank you for your shared knowledge. I shall pass it forward to our "I Aloha Molokai" (IAM) members. 

Have you done any research on Vibro-Acoustic Disease (VAD)? I have found that it is worse than WTS and also effects animals. There acoustical measurement results that irrefutably demonstrate that wind turbines in the proximity of residential areas produce acoustical environments that can lead to the development of VAD in nearby home-dwellers.

Sorry that I missed you before you got off line.

Thanks 4 the welcome!

Smile, it's just me!

Hi again. Clyde McDonald wrote an article for Northern Logger about fires started by turbines.  I'll see if I can find it.

Oops, I wasn't finished writing.... :o)  Thank you for wanting to be more involved.  I'd love to talk to you.   We need every citizen to speak up, and you have a perspective that many of our coalition lack. 

Let's talk soon, okay?  If you'd like, you can email me at or call me at 628-2070.  You can also email one of the co-chairs of the CTFWP, if you'd prefer: Steve Thurston and Monique Aniel.  Hope to talk soon!

Hey! How's it going? We want you--absolutely. For whatever you can and are willing to bring to the table

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 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?" 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.”

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.
