PPA's are the driving justification to future rate increases, along with the infiltration of false claims of showing a misinformed governance and its agencies that any new technology is the solution thus sanctioning yet another Corporate welfare tier.

This is where Wall Street Risk investments should be the only, "The ONLY" driving force for creation, and Market driven prices a justification for any increases. Risks has rewards if successful. Rewards without Risk is form of welfare. Profits for the few, imposed on others, at the expense of all, whether they participate on or off the grid. 

These PPA's are not part of investing other than they are investing in the ability to return for further rate increases or other assistance in order to survive though not without threats attached. Spending of Monies without factual knowledge of an ability to pay is tantamount of us buying a 3 Billion dollar estate knowing our income was limited to purchasing a cardboard box. Eventually Welfare, from all would be needed to pay the construction costs. 

[ hypothetical ]

If .15 per kWh were the company's needs, and the Feds & States based on amount used, imposed a tax on energy (no other taxes needed) use I dare say that those wasteful users would turn off the unneeded devices and the demand would sharply decrease.

The Maine DEP is proposing a rule change in the tangible benefit section "Evidence of a power purchase agreement or other agreement to distribute the electricity."  This would open the door to revealing how Maine is being used to comply with other state laws while corrupting the state's landscape. A power purchase agreement is a investor's necessity for a wind development of this size and Maines renewable compliance laws doesn't require as much renewable as this project proposes. This project is solely designed to provide for other state renewable laws.

Great news! 

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.
