I think it is time we watched this video again.
My friend Tom Olds and I created this a few years ago...and it is startling (and depressing) to realize how many of the rural landscapes which are showcased in this video have been lost to industrial wind development since that time.
Lincoln (Rollins Mountain, Rocky Dundee, at the hands of First Wind/SunEdison), Saddleback (Patriot Renewables), Roxbury/Record Hill (Angus King/Independence Wind), Oakfield (First Wind/SunEdison),…Continue

The wind power virus rapidly spreading through Maine is but a symptom of a larger systemic infection of corruption and deceit in the nation today.

The southern New England states are making deal to desecrate more of our hills and mountains with wind turbines and build transmission lines to get the power there. The plan calls for the builders to send the bill to those southern states, but we all know if 1 kw of…Continue
So Now the plans become clearer - Maine wind energy project are not so Maine can meet the renewable energy goals spelled out in the Expedited Wind Law. Maine wind energy is so others can meet their renewable goals! Are we expected to foot the bill for transmission?

About 600,000 so-called “smart meters” installed in homes and businesses by Central Maine Power pose no credible…
Emera sees a bright future for renewable energy in Northern Maine. Let's hope they don't try to stick ratepayers with the transmission cost!
MA former Executive Energy Secretary Ian Bowle's has written an op-ed for CommonWealth boasting the sacrifice of ME's citizens, and the sacrifice of the treasured integrity of Maine's mountains and viewscapes, for the benefit of Massachusetts residents.
I hope that some reading this will consider responding to this op-ed: …Continue
