SunEdison's Green "Home Wind" Push

"The total cost of 1-kilowatt wind turbine is around $9,000, excluding batteries. With an average wind speed of 9 mph, the estimated annual output is about 1,800 kwh. For a system large enough to provide all of your own energy, say close to 960 kwh per month for the average U.S. home, the costs can be significantly higher."…

Fake CMP / Iberodrola employees or another Wind Energy or Grid Solar Tactic.

AUGUSTA, Maine — Central Maine Power is urging customers to be wary of door-to-door energy sales people who may be misrepresenting themselves as CMP employees.

According to CMP,  the company has been receiving many customer complaints about the supplier’s salespeople misrepresenting themselves as working for, or on behalf of CMP, demanding to see copies of customers’ CMP bills, and for providing false and misleading information about energy prices.

“CMP is not…

Connecticut Annexation of New England

Maine's Initial Federal Requirement, 313MWh per 1,138 GWh use

Notice below how Connecticut has managed to stay White in this Progression over time yet they have the highest requirement to produce. Maine Exceeded its Federal obligations in 2011.

Does Connecticut actually Own New England?…

Wind Power to the Rescue ---- NOT!

Mild summer helps cut electricity costs

in New England


An abundance of natural gas and more efficient power plants have helped reduce the wholesale price of energy,.......

No mention of how Wind saved us a crapload of money...... Wonder why?

Ahhhhh!

Connecticut regulators approved a nearly 20 percent cut, or an average $31 a month, for residential customers of…

Higher Wind power use, Higher CO² per kWh delivered.

I find this strange, that if wind is so green, that Hawaii emits 1.9lb of CO² per kWh delivered to their customers, with Texas at 1.8lb. The two highest wind producers/users yet they burn a lower percentage of fossil fuels. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Yz2BdmzJgFRGsZmPngbMMn6Z-u10B28D3MgjlXL3nE0/pubhtml

Seems these people beat me to it, though I was more kind to the…

Reduction in CO² - One Secret Revealed........ Cut the Freaking Trees.

Obama Administration's Clean Power Plan Wins Praise in Maine

This type of study probably never preceded Wind Power in Maine. 

recently released study commissioned by the Maine Public Utility Commission dropped a bombshell on the electricity world earlier this year, valuing distributed solar at $0.33 per kWh, far above the state’s prevailing price. Maine’s traditional, centrally generated grid electricity is…

China / USA Air Quality

Most News reports state that our Turbine Towers are produced in China. Is this is where most of the CO² is being created in the production of our Not so Green wind turbines ? 

This may not be representative of where Wind turbine components are produced in China, but shows the lax air quality standards. Though we have our own problems. Given yesterday's news announcement, China is currently building Coal fired power plants at a record rate. Coal has the intense power on demand…

Whenever the tax credit has been removed, wind tower development has fallen by up to 93 percent.

ThinkstockPhotos-477780658

.....Wind turbines are put up solely for the Production Tax Credit given to the multinational organizations who end up owning them. Those who make a minuscule percentage of the profit are the few farmers who have the wind towers on their land, the real profits go to those corporations. Wind turbines have nothing to do with wind, green energy or more cost efficient electricity. It is big government…

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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
