Expensive Offshore Wind Farm Becomes Operational

From the Canada Free Press is an article talking about how ridiculously expensive the Block Island Offshore Wind Project is and how it is not really a viable solution.  It cost more than 10 times more than a gas plant that would supply the same amount of energy, but more reliable and without the transmission problems.  Denmark, a country that is always pushed in our face about having almost all "renewable" energy, is so energy poor, their citizens pay a huge part of their monthly pay for…

Why Are We Worried About A Few Measly Degrees of Warming?

NASA has made a dire prediction we are doomed.  Kind of sounds like Global Warming, huh?  Looks like another fear mongered government boondoggle to go spend a lot of unneeded dollars on.

Two Letters today on having Senator Collins fight the battle for Trump's appointments to EPA, Energy and Secy of State.  I'm not sure she really has to be told that, as she votes with the Dems alot.  Just waiting to see if they post my Letter about killing Eagles.  They have not even referenced that regulation was signed.  Anyone taking bets?…

Final wind-turbine rule permits thousands of eagle deaths

Griffon-vultures-Navarre-Spain.jpeg (279×413)

New rules by the EPA and Fish and Wildlife have allowed wind farms to kill birds for the next 30 years.  "The new rule will conserve eagles while also spurring development of a pollution-free energy source intended to ease global warming, a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s energy plan, said Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe."  How exactly does that…

First Offshore Commercial Wind Farm Starts up in Rhode Island

BlockIsland-LastTurbine_DeepwaterWind

Deepwater Wind has started operation of its five turbine 30 MW installation off the coast of Block Island.  As I read the article, I noticed they are selling the power to the installer of the 20 mile underwater cable, National Grid, for 24 cents a kwh to go up 3.5% annually for 20 years.  Anyone out there think this is a good price?  I think our Emera prices are in the 6-8 cents kwh right now, at least according to my bill.  At a rate of increase for 20…

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.
