Habib Blows Another $13.8 Million

The lab features a 16-foot-deep wave pool with a rotating wind machine. It’s meant to test 1:50 scale models against waves up to 2½ feet, or 125 feet when scaled up, and the scale equivalent of hurricane-force winds......Additional funding came from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, National Science Foundation, Maine Technology Institute and a $5 million voter-approved bond.…

Essential History: Governor Nominates Kurt Adams to Public Utilities Commission

And be sure to see the following link. Bookmark it, read it and read it again. Big picture: Over PUC staff objections, the Maine PUC approved the $1.4 Billion CMP Upgrade which despite BS published about it in the Maine press was one thing and one thing only - a 100% ratepayer funded gift to the wind industry so they could collect their subsidies and sell their REC's while destroying Maine. Kurt Adams was PUC chairman who took over $1 million in stock options from First Wind and then jumped…

Angry Neighbors Shoot-Up Wind Turbines

The pitch is that life for rural communities just isn’t complete without a fleet of blade-chucking, pyrotechnic, sonic-torture devices. And that country folks’ currently miserable, downtrodden lives can only improve with the addition of a few hundred whirling, bat-chomping, bird slicing wonders.

Read the rest here:…

Expedited Wind Law Expediter Karin Tilberg is Deputy Director of Forest Society of Maine

This is another example of how the pro-wind side has inserted itself in key places such as "environmental groups". Yesterday we saw how 50% of the Maine Trust for Public Lands is comprised of current or former First Wind/SunEdison employees including a senator's…

Maine Trust for Public Land 50% Manned by SunEdison Employees or Former Employees

When the wind industry moves into a state it stacks the deck in its favor as best it can. Some of the groups it invariably tries to win over, whatever the costs, are government officials and environmental groups.

If it can, it may attempt to become part of the very environmental groups it will later go to for seals of approval of its earth scarring, wildlife killing, health damaging and citizen rights crushing wind projects.

It would appear that at least two current…

Enron Wind Development, LLC in Maine, Kenetech, Angus King, etc.

It's not very hard to start seeing the connections between Enron Wind (in Maine) and Kenetech and then Governor Angus King who may have been protecting Kenetech - in the 1990's. Their whole master plan has been long in the making.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://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?" https://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.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
