SunEdison (SUNE) has plummeted 71.4% in 3 months attributable to its purchases of renewable companies.
LOL., snippets from today's Motley Fool on SUNE...
"One of the reasons investors loved SunEdison so much is the company's incredible growth spree. In the past year, it bought First Wind, a $2 billion portfolio of wind projects from Invenergy,…Continue
I can't begin to tell you how slanted this article is that will make the uninformed citizen of Maine think Wind is one of the biggest contributors to cleaning our atmosphere, providing 4,200 jobs, (not permanent) using nameplate outputs, not the usual 25% actual outputs, and telling us it will make big changes in the quality of the air in the SECOND cleanest state in the union.I sure wish we could get one of our writers to get so believed by the biased media. Though we already do so much,…Continue
I originally thought this was written by Kurt Adams - It was written by Jeremy Payne who has now been completely emboldened by the FMM announcement. And as far as Charlie Colgan's 4,200 jobs created by the wind industry, I can assure you Charlie was paid handsomely for his study = I am just not sure if they gave him cash or a lifetime supply of glazed donuts and Little Debbie's! In any event - read it and weep!…Continue
Take a good look at Jeremy Payne's resume on linkedin. We all know Jeremy as Executive Director of the Maine Renewable Energy Association, the principal lobbyist for the wind industry in Maine.
You will note in the resume that Jeremy also worked on the CasinosNO campaign, financed by the Oxford Casino and Hollywood Slots to prevent additional casino competition in Maine. All of us know by now that Chris O;Neil also worked for the CasinosNO campaign. HMM- Strange bedfellows or just…Continue
An agreement reached between Friends of Maine Mountains and developer SunEdison will provide $2.5 million to conservation projects statewide. I hope this turns out to be a positive agreement for Maine. I'm not sure any of these projects have enough salted away for decommissioning should it become necessary. I'm afraid we will be saddled with enormous behemoths for as long as we can see. …Continue

The Wind Industry in the EU is basically admitting that they are only viable with an increase in subsidies. The increase would be suicide to many of the countries already at the brink of disaster.

While not directly related to wind - I for one believe our answer to wind development is to follow Germany's lead - Abandon wind development which has been proven not to work and focus on Solar power - I use it - It works!
This post is not meant to be political - I believe Mrs. Clinton is the first presidential candidate to announce her energy Plan to make the US a clean energy super power.

In Scotland, the people are finally getting fed up with the destruction of view and wildlife and rejected a new set of wind turbines. Why is it that our legislators can't see the same destruction? Could it be that they almost all live in the part of the state that have no turbines? Or could it be they are in somebody's pocket? I don't know, but we sure need to get some of the Southern Maine Population up North to see what is really happening. Pictures just don't do it…Continue
This article came out a week or so ago - It is good news for Maine ratepayers - Our new PUC - a lawyer, an engineer, and an economist just might be really good for Maine! There is a reason why power companies are regulated - The are privately held corporations and we are their captives. I for one am getting tired of paying for capital improvements of a private corporations and being told these are for my benefit!…Continue
The Impact of Wind Farm Deforestation on Air Quality and CO2 removal
April 30th, 2013
The premise upon which the ‘fast track’ permitting and subsidizing Wind farms was based was the role they played in replacing electricity generated from CO2 emitting power plants with renewable energy from ‘clean’…
A very good argument for doing away with the PTC and put all energy companies on a level playing field. Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas), makes a passionate plea to end the spending.

Our Direct FuelCell® (DFC®) power plants efficiently convert hydrogen and oxygen into ultra-clean electricity and usable high quality heat suitable for making steam. The hydrogen is obtained from a fuel source such as clean natural gas or renewable biogas, and is reformed within the fuel cell itself. This unique internal reforming technology provides …

Atty Chris Senie delivered for wind turbine victims in Falmouth, MA, and elsewhere by precedent this week. Senie's, "masterful, encyclopedic (yet succinct) presentation", to the town ZBA on behalf of injured citizens is a must read:
At the moment ISO-NE's is using about 15,000 MW of electricity. 35% of that electricity is coming from 4 nuclear generators with a combined capacity of 4000 MW that consistently operate at a 90% capacity factor year after year. On the opposite end of the efficiency spectrum, 104 MW is coming from over 800 MW of installed capacity of wind turbines that occupy over 80 miles of New England's ridges. That has been the story all summer long - the time of peak demand on the…Continue
