A con artist trying to get the money it believes it is entitled to will say anything to get its money. In this case a wind company agreed to a mountain road width and is now acting surprised that turbine maintenance is required and that the giant cranes require far wider roads!
Feb. 20, 2009 ISO-NE question to CMP about MPRP :
Q. What percentage of this Project, if any, can be attributed solely for generation

the project was modified as a…

Let's see how this goes. The wind industry's rigged polls tell us a majority of people like wind power. Yet greater than 90% of votes on moratoriums in Maine towns go against wind. In other words, when people stop to study the issue, they quickly see that wind is nothing but a fraudulent house of cards harmful to human health, the environment and the economy. Or as the wind industry itself has privately…Continue
The term "installed capacity" refers to the amount of power an industrial wind facility would produce under ideal wind conditions; but such ideal wind conditions rarely (if ever) occur.
Wind Farm Proposal and Permits usually refer to the ratio of actual power to be produced compared to this production ideal as "an expected capacity…Continue
After reviewing the Department of Environmental Protection analysis of the Bingham wind project, I felt like the state was being bought out by First Wind to put in the largest wind farm in the state.
The project will permanently affect four separate deer wintering areas, with a total of 21.54 acres. First Wind proposed to minimize the impact of one deer wintering area by using single pole structures in a 21-foot-wide…Continue

Listen today LIVE at EUT work session discussion on LD 1750, An Act to "amend the administrative procedure and to clarify Maine wind energy law".
The EUT committee can postpone, table, adjourn - but the fight never stops and more and more people are aware of the game this committee has been playing ignoring the grievances of Maine citizens regarding industrial wind power and failing to answer specific questions concerning the false premises and promises of wind…Continue

LePage implored the Legislature to do more to help Mainers, and to invest in growing technologies and energy sources, including heat pumps and natural gas, that both help families save money, and attract businesses by making the energy market in Maine more competitive.
“This bill died because the Natural Resource Council of Maine didn’t want revenues to go help Maine people, they wanted it to go buy land,” LePage said. “I find that scandalous.”…Continue

Perhaps this consumer organization needs to probe the fraud that is wind power.

The House Natural Resources Committee issued the subpoena Tuesday as part of a 10-month investigation into the enforcement policies and practices of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Justice Department, a news release said.
An Associated Press investigation exposed how the Obama administration was failing to enforce the law for wind power, even as it…Continue
Every wind turbine contributes to global warming, so thanks to all those politicians who have given us our expensive, mountain-destroying, unreliable wind power.
This is dedicated to all the wind turbine victims in Maine and everywhere else.
This is from VTDigger.org. The author is a victim of the Georgia Mt. wind turbines in VT. I have copied the entire piece here, but there are many interesting comments as well, so here is the link: …Continue
