Spain Rules Maine!

Why?

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…

IRS rules for wind power: Legal or Not?

Lisa Linowes - February 24, 2015

Taxes & Subsidies USA

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.

BDN - New Maine wind "farm" reopens legal questions

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.…

Expedited Statute should be at least, stayed in its implementation, so long as Maine produces more than 25% in excess of its use.

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.…

Private Investigators in Maine hired by Citizens' Anti-Wind Groups

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…

National Park Service: Keep wind turbines at least 34 miles away

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…

Of Greed, Collusion, Corruption and Bribery

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…

BDN - Why do selectmen push for 500' Tall Turbines when 89% of residents call their rural way of life important?

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.…

The Maine Wind Plantation Marches Forward

http://www.maine.gov/dacf/lupc/reports/docs/rptReceivedAccepted.html

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…

Ellsworth American - Possible regulatory uncertainty for wind corporations in Maine a welcome occurrence

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.…

Wind Companies Desire "Certainty"?

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…

CMP Transmission Rate Skyrockets 19.6% Due to Wind Power

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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  http://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?"  http://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.” http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
