OUR OWN HIGHLANDS....

Happy St. Patricks Days to All ye Irishmen, and a fine day it is.. so nice a day to put out my Irish Pride sign.  Included is another sign that I was inspired to make, "IRISHMEN WILL PROTECT THE HIGHLANDS". You  wouldn't believe all the articles and stories I've read of all our kins men and clans men in other countries and providences that have fought the battle to keep these massive turbines from infecting and invading their precious HIGHLANDS.  Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton.  They get…

INSURANCE POLICY ON SADDLEBACK WIND TURBINES.......

Everybody that has abutting property to the Saddleback Ridge Turbine Project should be finding out from your town who is going to be the policy holder for insurance on the project. Is it the town, the landowner or is the lease holder of the project paying the landowners insurance or is the leaseholder taking out the insurance policy???? This would be a good question for all abutting land owners that agree or oppose the turbine project.

WHATS GOING TO BE CARTHAGE FIRE DEPARTMENTS RESPONSE TIME TO A FIRE ON THEIR WIND TURBINES??

I wonder if they, the people that are voting this in and the ones leasing their land have taken this into consideration.

The access road, which will be the Winterhill road off Rt.#2 on the Dixfield side seems to be off the beaten path for Carthage Fire Department. Correct me if I'm wrong, (a voluntary fire department at that). Wow do they even think they could get to a forest fire from one of their TURBINES before it got out of control without relying on Dixfield volunteer and East Dixfield… Continue

BLASTING THE TOP OF THE SADDLEBACK RIDGELINE



Last evening while at Patriots Renewable Info. meeting in Carthage, the topic was brought up on access roads to get to the proposed site on Saddleback Ridge. From the way it sounds the mountain top ridge will be blasted for a total of at least 3 and a half miles. WOW! Now look what we will have after this! Western Maine Man Made Mountain tops. What a site that will be! I wonder how that will appear in tourism brochures! If this passes in all the surrounding towns, our state government will… Continue

“Do the voters of Carthage support the opportunity to develop local renewable energy including wind in order to create jobs, increase tax revenue and provide clean energy.”
Good question and there are other good questions that need to be answered.
“ Do the voters of Carthage support the opportunity to learn, question and decide upon their future through enactment of a time-out period ( a moratorium ) ? “
Thank you for taking the time to read this
From one who believes the people have the right to
Decide.

a letter to persuade the people of Carthage:

“Do the voters of Carthage support the opportunity to develop local renewable energy including wind in order to create jobs, increase tax revenue and provide clean energy.”
Now, who would vote negatively to that statement ? But is there more to wind projects not revealed in this statement and, if there is, shouldn’t you have the opportunity to learn, question and decide ?
Why are so many towns enacting moratoriums on wind power development ? What is a moratorium ?
A moratorium creates a six month time-out period , designed to allow people a chance to ponder the recourse a proposed project will have on their way of life as well as their neighbor’s way of life. The proposed project is not allowed to proceed into the construction phase during this period of time.
Some towns use this time to arrange forums, bringing in speakers to help people understand both sides ( the good and the bad points of wind projects ).
Some towns put together a ordinance committee to develop regulations with intent to ensure that the health and welfare of the community is not infringed upon by the project.
Some towns will do both and some will do one or the other. Sometimes, the moratorium is established before a project has been proposed, and sometimes after proposal. Often times, moratoriums are extended when resolutions by the people have not be reached.
The important thing is that a moratorium puts you, the people, in charge. Not the state and not the developer.
The project in Carthage is probably 8 to 10 months from beginning of construction providing the state grants the developers a permit.
HAD TO BREAK LETTER TO TWO COMMENT SECTIONS CONTINUES WITH SECOND COMMENT.

J Albrecht of Dixfield wrote a comment about the wind debate in Dixfield expressing concerns for the people on Common Road who will be greatly affected by them. I added a comment:



jalbrecht1 makes a good point about citizen's feelings towards other citizens. Advocating for these wind turbines knowing fellow citizens within the community will suffer would do irrepairable damage to community spirit. Wondering if others in Dixfield felt the same, my father-in-law and I approached nearly half the residents living on our road, which, by the way would be immune to the visual and noise effects of putting these wind machines atop Colonel Holman:



DO YOU OPPOSE WIND TURBINES ON COLONEL HOLMAN MOUNTAIN?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
As fellow citizens of Dixfield, we strongly support you and your desire
to prevent the wind turbines from appearing atop Colonel Holman
Mountain.
Monday night at 6pm, September 28, at the Ludden Library, our first
public hearing concerning wind towers will be held, and not a moment
too soon.
As the town of Byron has proved, the earliest stages of the wind
company's proposal is the time to stop them. They were loud and they
were emphatic and they were heard clearly NO WIND!!!!
If we open the door for wind towers on Colonel Holman Mountain, we
open the door to Holman Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain.
SPEAK OUT
If you are undecided, come to this hearing and listen to fellow citizens as
they reveal the real facts about wind and wind companies.



15 of 15 people signed on agreeing with this statement.

I thought you might like to know this.
 
 
 

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.
