Wind Gives Way to Solar Power and Natural Gas After Federal Subsidies End

The Canada Free Press published an article reiterating all the facts we already know. 

1. Federal subsidies are due to run out in 2020 as long as our screwed up government does not extend them again.

2. From 2000 to 2017 the wind contribution to our National grid only went from 1.5% to 6.3% and we have spent a trillion or so dollars for something that does NOT work.

3. Wind turbines have a very short lifespan compared to other types of power plants.

4. Electricity rates have increased by nearly 55% since 2000, largely due to the use of wind turbines. Germany and England have increased their rates by nearly 100%.

5. At some point down the line we are going to have huge stockpiles of decommissioned wind turbines, and will have to pay the costs of recovering the used materials. 

I guess all this is good news for our future, but somehow I have a feeling the powers that be will find a way to make our lives more miserable in the future all in the name of "GREEN!"

The IPCC is still wrong on climate change. Scientists prove it.

As this historical chart shows, electricity consumption is down in Maine, and generation is way down. It used to be that Maine generated more electricity than it used.  Now Maine is a net importer of electricity.

Between 1950 and 2010, U.S. residential electricity consumption per capita increased 10-fold, an annual increase of 4% per year.

[With only 59% of the Sun's energy reaching the surface of the earth]

6.3% is an exaggerated figure, but even so, with a 4% annual increase, of consumption at best it would be 2.3% of the entire use in this country. Combined with solar, 6.3% is still a stretch. 

The maximum contribution at our current usage would be 4.4% &11% respectively at the current output for wind and 90% for solar. (based on currently available information) 

With electrical use in a decline per residential household, it is being consumed more heavily in other areas, including WASTE and/or aesthetic lighting. With the upcoming attempt at another failure, electric vehicles (beyond the 25mph speed zones of practicality) we will soon see a surge in consumption without an ability to generate. Then in order to keep up with demand, we will burn that displaced gasoline for generation of electricity. 

And so the circle will be completed, with the Monkey finally catching its Tail only to find disappointment.

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.
