"Thank you for the analysis. I suppose some in fantasy land will tell us wind power will provide all the electricity.....and I thought only sailboats at sea got stuck in windless weather. Next it'll be cars on the Interstate waiting for a breeze."

REPLACING GASOLINE CONSUMPTION WITH ELECTRICITY IN VERMONT

RE proponents want to “electrify” the Vermont transportation sector. That means: - Much less consumption of gasoline and much more generation of electricity.- Internal combustion engines using gasoline, hereafter called E10 (a blend of 90% gasoline/10% ethanol from corn), would be replaced with electric vehicles. For this article, it is assumed only EVs will be used to replace IC vehicles that currently are using gasoline. Hybrids would not be allowed, unless they would use bio-fuels, of which…See More

FLAWED EPA METHOD OF CALCULATING MPG FOR E10 VEHICLES AND MPGeq FOR EVs

The EPA has a unique method of calculating MPGeq. The method is used nowhere else in the world. The EPA arbitrarily sets the lower heating value, LHV, of gasoline at 115,000 Btu/gal.Then EPA states 115000 Btu/(3412 Btu/kWh) = 33.7 kWh.BTW, the LHV of E10 (a blend of 90% gasoline/10% ethanol) is 112114 Btu/gal. When testing an EV, the EPA measures the kWh (AC) from a wall meter.The vehicle state-of-charge meter measures the kWh (DC) in the battery.The loss due to AC to DC conversion, battery…See More

PRIMARY ENERGY AND CO2 OF US, NE AND VERMONT ELECTRICITY SYSTEMS

Primary Energy Sources Requiring Combustion Source energy is the energy taken from the earth, such as from a well, a mine, a forest. The energy for exploration, extraction, processing and transport is used to convert the source energy to primary energy for the US economy. The US electrical system uses about 40% of all primary energy. - Source energy is the energy taken from coalmines, oil and gas wells, and forests for conversion (by means of combustion) to electricity and heat.- Primary energy…See More

SYNAPSE-ENERGY STUDY OF SOLAR SAVINGS COMMISSIONED BY SUNCOMMON OF VERMONT

SunCommon of Vermont commissioned Synapse-Energy to perform a study that would show the benefits of before-the-meter (BTM) solar. The study shows there were almost $20 million of benefits for all of New England, about $1.3 million for Vermont during the very sunny period of July 1 to July 7; that period had very little wind, and thus almost no wind generation. That joyous news was released with much fanfare, plus admonitions from SunCommon not to reduce solar subsidies, and to build more BTM…See More

CMP Transmission Rate Skyrockets 19.6% Due to Wind Power

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
