U.S. Wind Energy Prices Continue to Fall

We currently have five wind turbines installed off the coast of Block Island amounting to our entire "offshore" wind generation. There is a "pipeline" to build out 24,564 MW of new offshore wind across 13 states. While this sounds HUGE, let's try and convert some of these outlandish sounding numbers into something we can all understand.…

Interesting take from an Iowan Newspaper.

Wind power, jobs and the gullible

We often hear wind power is generating lots of jobs for Iowans. How true is this? Wind power is subsidized by taxpayers, because it cannot support itself or the jobs it claims without subsidies in the form of tax credits. This means we, the taxpayers, are paying for the jobs claimed by wind power. Check out the Production Tax Credit (Iowa Code 476C) if in doubt.…

Al Gore Won’t Tell You Wind Power’s Dirty Secret

BY CILLIAN ZEAL 

JANUARY 23, 2018 AT 2:42AM

We’ve been told over and over again that wind power is one of the cleanest power sources on earth, all by people like Al Gore. And why wouldn’t it be?…

New Ruling: Solar Incentives Thrown a Curve Ball!

Maine’s top court says appeal of changes to solar incentives must go to lower court

It's time to dry up all incentives for all "renewable energy" sources.

Wind and solar have been around for as much as 40 years producing less than 10% of our national power, and still they want to be propped up by subsidies and tax credits. On a percentage basis, they get 40 times the benefits other producers…

Enviro group: Hydro contract bad for Maine

Whitewater Rafting in the Kennebec Gorge

Susan Ely, from the Natural Resource Council of Maine, is joining the Sierra Club and explains why the 145 mile transmission project is a financial scam by CMP will do nothing to reduce emissions and will destroy much of the wilderness of Maine. It is very clear that CMP is trying to usurp large amounts of cash…

The Sausage-Making of Wind Power vs. the Military

It is clear that the wind lobby has infiltrated every level of our media and government, both state and federal, and are NOT stooping their intrusion into everything that we hold dearly.

Now they are fighting to make our military less safe and for that matter all of us, too. Obama and his administration took off the restrictions for having wind turbines near military bases, airports, and other sensitive sites because…

Power Worth Less Than Zero Spreads as Green Energy Floods the Grid

Wind and solar farms are glutting networks more frequently, prompting a market signal for coal plants to shut off

The disruption of grid energy by renewable energy continues to grow, even in places that have touted wind and solar for years. Prices have been driven to ZERO for producers like coal and gas and even hydro in places where wind and solar are plentiful. The problem is though that wind is expensive…

The Spanish coal power plants public aids system under the European Commission’s scrutiny

Does anyone remember how the Spaniards were put in our face during a time of the buildup of wind energy? How OUR energy company, Iberdrola, a Spanish Company, was making huge developments in wind was our future? And how MISERABLY Iberdrola failed in Spain?

Well thank goodness we don't have anything to do with the EU anymore, or the Paris Accord or fake energy news. Spain is trying to open new coal plants and trying…

Wind power in Europe is madness; offshore wind power is off-the-scale madness.

The scientists in Europe are finally starting to get a leg up.  They are challenging the non-scientific bureaucrats who have been promoting wind and solar and are finally getting the truth out. Germany has realized it, France has resisted it and has the cleanest of all energy in Europe with their nuclear and hydro power, but energy is getting so expensive . . . . and they have no coal left or oil or gas.  They have had to depend on imported gas from Russia at a…

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.
