During the past 10 years, solar systems, large and small, have been installed in many areas of the world, especially in southern Germany and southern California. With many small solar systems connected to a distribution system, the passing of clouds causes their output to become highly irregular. When there were few solar systems this was not a problem, but not so with many systems.
Increasingly, battery systems are added to such distribution grids for regulation, i.e.,…Continue
New England has clean energy generation alternatives, other than variable wind and solar energy, which requires the inefficient operation of gas turbines for peaking, filling-in and balancing, and tree burning, which wastes at least 5 out of 6 trees.
NOTE: Wood Source Energy Factor: Losses = Upstream (harvest, chipping, transport, about 2.5%) + Conversion to electricity, including self-use for entire site (about 75%) + Transmission and distribution (about 7%) =…Continue

Massachusetts has released it's latest RFP for renewables for a 2022 delivery. This will drive a devastating acceleration of wind farm and transmission corridor development - MCPC and MEPCO. Currently, there are 2335 megawatts (estimated 700 turbines) of proposed projects with the prospects of more due to the scale of this massive request from…Continue

Not surprising, city people virtue signal their liberal support for industrial wind energy, dogmatizing it as a viable solution to the alleged problem of “climate change” without much thought.…Continue

“Our main concern with IMAPP is that it will result in New Hampshire (and Maine and Vermont) ratepayers picking up the tab for the environmental policies of (mainly) Massachusetts and Connecticut,” said NERA President Marc Brown.
This article appears in the March 31 2017 issue of New Hampshire Business Review.…Continue

In this document (attached), the ISO is acknowledging as a state of common and shared knowledge that low-frequency oscillatory motion produces (a) human body mechanical resonance phenomena above 1 Hz (such as the chest vibratory phenomena that are a prominent part of Wind Turbine Syndrome) and (b) motion sensitivity (vertigo, nausea, and related mental components) below 1 Hz. (Hz stands for Hertz.)
With this being common…Continue

If people look at a wind turbine and BELIEVE that it is saving the planet, they think the turbine is beautiful. But it people KNOW that the turbine is merely a useless and unnecessary feel-good scam to line the pockets of speculators, their VIEW of Big Wind is changed. …Continue

"State plans to buy wind power from Maine have been stalled by insufficient transmission capacity to get it here.......And importantly – you probably won’t be able to see the turbines from land........Also nothing we are talking about here involves wind power in Long Island Sound. The waters of the Sound are controlled by Connecticut and New York state, not the federal government. For multiple reasons, not the least of which is that it’s not windy enough, the Sound is not suited to…Continue
MAINE CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEREST REPORTING | March 29, 2017
An examination by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting of recent legislative fundraising, including reviews of invitations, campaign finance reports and state law, reveals that lobbyists and legislators have found ways to legally undermine the spirit of those reforms, giving private interests continued opportunities to spread their money around the statehouse.
How they do it: by scheduling events on…Continue

PPH - The order will mandate a review of the Clean Power Plan
President Donald Trump on Tuesday took the most significant step yet in obliterating his predecessor’s environmental record, instructing federal regulators to rewrite key rules curbing U.S. carbon emissions.......“This rule was an unlawful attempt to radically transform the nation’s power grid, destroying valuable energy assets and leaving our economy more vulnerable…Continue

A total of 39 Unorganized Territory communities from western Maine to Down East have taken back the ability to nix wind power projects they don’t like.
And a fight is still brewing over what could be the 40th, in Milton Township, where developer EverPower has proposed a wind farm.
The moves were a response to the 2008 Maine Wind Energy Act, which gave blanket zoning approval to wind power projects in the Unorganized Territory without review by a regional…Continue
