On Tuesday, June 24, Saving Maine not only ran the two ads in the National section of the Portland Press Herald, but also ran this ad in the "Business Tuesday" section. We who understand the wind scam know it is the bastard son of Enron. Thank you Saving Maine for pointing it out so well to the southern Maine business community. Expensive, taxpayer subsidized wind power should NEVER be supported by the business community unless that business has its hand in the wind industry "cookie…Continue
We're finishing up a very strong opening week with ads in the weekend edition of the BND and the Maine Sunday Telegram. Two hard hitting ads in each paper will be seen by tens of thousands of Mainers and tourists over this coming weekend. Something to look forward to on Sunday morning. Saving Maine web site traffic has been very strong as well - visits were up again yesterday after ads ran in the PPH. The FW/Enron ad was very poignant given the EMERA deal and Bowers denial. Please take Brad…Continue
Saving Maine's ad campaign has expanded to the Portland Press Herald, with two ads on different pages in the National section. The ads which started today are this one here and, two pages later, the "Saudi Arabia of Wind" ad that I posted a few days ago that had run in the "Forecaster".Continue
Thank you Saving Maine for raising the funds to launch an advertising campaign to educate Maine citizens and our valuable summer visitors about the scourge of industrial wind power in Maine!
The new ad campaign by Saving Maine is on! Here is the ad that ran in this week's Forescaster, the premier newspaper that covers Maine's populated region that loves wind turbines because they will never have them built near them. Support the effort by going to savingmaine.org…

First Wind et al is comprised of a cadre of well connected subsidy seeking liars, who deceive and pervert the permitting process for their own ends.
They deserve to be removed from Maine's permitting process as contenders for any other projects in Maine.
This was a good wake up call for the industry as well. They have everything on their side except the truth, and…Continue

Maine will use less electricity in 2023 than today, forecast says

In Dec. 2013, after nearly four years of basic wind warrioring, the Business and Consumer Court agreed with the Beckfords of Rebel Hill Farm and vacated Pisgah Mt, LLC's permit. The Court concluded the Clifton Planning Board did not enforce the ordinance that Pisgah was unable to comply with. At that time we wondered if the town government would know it was time to fold 'em. Nope!! After having wasted $75,000 in their legal support of Pisgah, the Select Board gave the Planning Board…Continue
EPA wants Maine power plants to cut emissions 13.5 percent by 2030
In a statement, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers — the union that represents workers at Bath Iron Works, FairPoint Communications and elsewhere — expressed concern the new regulations could reduce the country’s overall electricity production capacity and could negatively affect jobs and…Continue
I believe this is based on the U.S. If wind power is as terrible as Brookings describes nationally, think of how much less efficacious it is in Maine where onshore wind is overall poor.
Hopefully the shallow thinking environmental groups will soon stop taking money from the wind industry and quickly acknowledge the reality they have been helping to destroy Maine's magnificence in shilling for this wholly fraudulent electricity…Continue
