Wind Power Tax Credit ‘Dead’ in Congress This Year, according to Bloomberg.com

Don't ever count out the greedy push of the wind developers but according to this Bloomberg.com post, the revival of the wind industry's sacred Production Tax Credit may be dead this year.

Here is the lead in to the article, followed by the link:

The European Wind Folly should be a lesson for the USA

In the fight against proliferation of destructive, sprawling wind power sites, the scenic and environmental impact and noise problems are important. But I usually lead with the economic argument. Wind Turbines are a useless, expensive source of electricity that would not even exist except for overly generous subsidies (per MWH) and heinous mandates. Before we destroy more of our beautiful state with wind turbines, Congress should take heed of the disastrous results of Europe's folly with…

Bull Hill Turbines from Schoodic Mt. A ruined vista from a scenic resource

One of the most troublesome problems with the proliferation of industrial wind projects in Maine is their encroachment on the "treasures" of the state that we have purchased to protect for future generations.  We have passed a number of bond issues totaling more than $200 million (principal & interest) for the Fund for Land for Maine's Future.  We have leveraged with these funds millions of dollars more from other sources to preserve places like the Mahoosuc Range, Rumford…

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/
