Spain Rules Maine!
Because graft and collusion in the Maine legislature as it relates to wind power corruption and collusion was allowed and legislated in 2008 by PL-661, by the Baldacci clan et al.
Pl-661 should be…

Clearly, the interpretation of what constitutes “begin construction” is important, yet at no time during the two years since the PTC was extended with this wording did the IRS bother to seek public comment under the Administrative Procedure Act ("APA"), the federal statute that requires federal agencies to provide notice and an opportunity to comment before promulgating rules.

Just received this document from:
Maine Department of Environmental Protection
Bingham Wind Project Application
Before wind power developer Atlantic Wind moves ahead with its 50-turbine project in Somerset County, state regulators want to answer big legal questions about what kind of financial ties the developer can have with Central Maine Power Co.
Both companies are owned by the Spanish utility Iberdrola, though both are separated by various levels of corporate subsidiary relationships.…Continue
When Maine produces More energy than it uses, 43% used, 57% exported, there is no need for expedited statutes to remain in effect. We in Maine are not in peril of running low. This seems to be why the statute was created. Though it was created for Communities, and persons, not Corporations and Stockholders.…Continue
Remember folks,the modus operandi and "business plan" of wind companies has not changed in Maine since the inception of PL-661 in 2008 (Expedited Wind Law).
The law was designed by big wind and numerous self-serving unctuous politicians (think Angus King) and deceptive "enviro"lawyers to destroy Mainers' constitutional and property rights and to enable their scheme. Other ignorant or ill-informed politicians at the time "assumed" the benefits of Industrial Wind (there has never…Continue
Unfortunately, those of us close to the wind fight in Maine know all too well that Maine Audubon's telling of wildlife tales sometimes overlooks things.

If the National Park Service sees fit to keep wind turbines 34 miles away from a lighthouse that is only 156' tall as noted at the link below, then surely Maine needs to reassess the far smaller distances it tolerates from these out of scale and place…Continue
After years of dealing with the wind issue, I can say with sadness that Maine is a very dirty little state, politically.
It is a shame how unctuous political elites have manipulated the legislative process as it concerns the wind scam.
Governor LePage should immediately place a halt to all further wind projects until detailed cost/benefit analysis is undertaken of the wind industry in Maine.
In addition , an ethical "audit" should be initiated by the…Continue

89 percent of residents categorize our rural way of life as “important” or “very important.” The plan’s land use goal says that new development should “be compatible with [Orland’s] rural attributes such as open ridgelines and scenic views.” Yet our selectmen have supported a plan for 500-foot industrial wind turbines.…Continue
The six state Governors committee on energy has been given notice that 2500 megawatts of wind plant electricity is ready to take over the Maine landscape by 2016.
The three states of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island ( not a place for wind plants ) have issued a Request for Proposals for at least 1000 megawatts…Continue

Folks near proposed wind farms should know that this topic has been thoroughly researched and the results indicate that home values will not be negatively affected by the arrival of a wind farm.
Charles Baldwin, Development Project Coordinator
Critics of the decision — many of them directly involved in the wind industry — claim that reopening the bidding will create “regulatory uncertainty” in the global market and put the flow of investment dollars to the state at risk. We believe any such risk would be limited to further investment in land-based wind power development in Maine. And our view — one shared by many others in Maine — is that such a slowdown is a welcome occurrence.…Continue
Does anyone have a map of all projects, now and upcoming?
Any individual or business knows these two facts......
There are only 2 certainties in life.......
Death and Taxes...(and all should minimize the later to the full extent allowed by law).
Legitimate businesses know this .
These Wind Scoundrels do not use a legitimate business model, and never have. They lie and deceive as their modus operandi and utilize quasi legitimate and legally questionable hedging schemes for…
