Wind power isn't making the big impact its champions claim

The Maine Renewable Energy Association released a white paper touting that Maine wind power in 2013 theoretically offset CO2 emissions equivalent to 94,000 vehicles. To state the obvious--wind power does not offset vehicle emissions; it offsets CO2 from power plants. And, in 2013 it barely offset 1% of New England's CO2 from power plants. Here are the real facts about the potential for Maine wind power to offset CO2:…

Moratorium on Wind Power in Maine

While Roxanne Quimby's national park proposal grabs the headlines, wind turbines are marching relentlessly across Maine, changing the character of Maine forever. Let's ask our legislators to put a moratorium on wind power in Maine until ALL the economic and environmental impacts are assessed. It is the legislature, not LURC, that has the power to halt the progression of wind turbines. I've contacted my legislators; please do the same. Read more...…

yes, but two are due to long-term PPAs with MA utilities. Is not the 3rd with RI and the 'most egregious' for land-grab and mass, as opposed to godly vistas, will be No. 9 Mtn for CT. We tinier states really have less than anything for siting industrial wind in places less productive than UMaine or for smaller (good site - exposed and high - tech school gave equiv of 13 trees in 2 years or so). MANY northeast states have 1.1 times height as adequate setback, with possibilities of 'easements' to reduce that totally inadequate distance. In CT, I am pretty sure that a nationally registered historic place and business did not prevail. In Massachusetts, we define 'noise-sensitive receptors' meriting the protection of law or noise policy to be ONLY full-time voting residents. In some towns that means seasonal mobile home parks, owned and taxed, can be 400 ft from about 400 ft towers. No deference to taxpayer/owners who contribute also to seasonal economy. None to Camps or guides.

I do think that our best hope is to fix Maine first. It is where the mess began. There is so much to fix.
 
 
 

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.
