Another Epic Fail for Maine Wind Industry: EUT Committee Kills the Baldacci Bill - LD 1513 (Watch Eric Tuttle's Video!)

Be sure to watch Eric Tuttle's video. The camera brings sunlight, the great sanitizer.

Can we get a statue of Eric right up next to Paul Bunyan?

Bless you Eric Tuttle.

And thank you to all who fought so hard to defeat this nightmarish bill from Rep. Mark Dion, the wind industry  and the utilities including ex-Gov John Baldacci's new employer, Iberdrola, where in December 2015 Mr. Baldacci was made Vice Chair of their wind division, Avangrid.

Echoing what Monique and Steve wrote, thank you to all who wrote to the EUT. And thank you Monique and Steve!

And as much as it pains me to say it after how many times they've stomped on us, thank you EUT members who did the right thing this time. We are watching.

If anyone locates a particularly choice bit from the EUT session, note the segment (Pat I, Part II, etc.) and time and post it here or otherwise let us know. We'll be doing same, but let's get lots of eyes on this.

Thank you all wind warriors and aggrieved parties. The years of steady jabs and leg kicks are undeniably taking their effect and chopping Goliath to the ground.

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.
