8 Replies

I was wondering if there have been any Maine towns that have adopted moratoriums against Industrial Wind,  that have then NOT implemented ordinances stricter than the state's.  Does anyone know?  It…Continue

The Economics of Transmission NE - http://www.windaction.org/faqs/25906

The economics of transmission in New England(Posted March 2, 2010)

With little fanfare last week, the ISO-New England[1] released its latest report, New England 2030 Power System Study: Report to the New England Governors, summarizing the economic and environmental impacts of developing significant amounts of renewable sources within the region including substantial inland and offshore wind resources.

According to the report, the New England States Committee on Electricity (NESCOE)…

Buckfield's Wind Ordinance Workshops

Well, Dan's post inspired me to share what is our experience here in Buckfield. The planning board proposed that a core group of members commit to meeting weekly in order to do the extensive work necessary to formulate a cohesive ordinance. We refer to the weekly meetings as "workshops" so that we aren't restricted in terms of quarum etc. We are not doing any official "voting" - instead formulating recommendations to take to the entire board for the voting.

The history here…

Use of the Technology

Has anyone ever asked these wind-power proponents (industry reps) how many of them use wind-power as their source of electricity? Seems to me that if I was privy to the equipment and knowledge of set-up and operation, AND I thought it was an economical way to provide my power, I'd put one or two (residential size) up in my yard for my personal use. Personally, I am much more likely to believe someone who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk....

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.
