First Wind Scammers and Criminals are back in Maine, Weaver Wind, and why,how?

The average wind farm changes hands three times in the first year after completion. First Wind,SunEdison,Novatus....Stacy (the liar) Fitts...et al and on are classical examples in Maine...................... 

“I’m an accountant by trade, and I can create you an LLC on my cellphone in five minutes. I can also close it down in three days with the internet. They sell, they come and go, so the guy standing in front of you today with a contract, promising you X, Y, Z and promising your county commissioners they will pay for the removal and pilot payments … it’s a different guy in a year, or it could be,” Peterson said. “You are taking the word of someone that is only there to get a subsidy. … The key word for subsidies is they only have to start construction. Once they have the profit, they don’t want to operate it because they operate at a loss. That is one of the key things we looked at is why build a windmill?”

It is never about the intermittent energy they produce, it is about the Free Stuff...SUBSIDY MONEY!

It Always was , Always will be....and the public taxpayers are the the ultimate schmucks who  let this continue.

See minutes from Oct 15.

There are two identical homes and lots on a north woods lake except one sits near a wind project and the other one doesn't. If you had to buy one - and both were the same price, which would you buy?

" Ms. Monroe noted that over 80% of the comments received were against further wind development in the State, just over 10% were supportive of further wind development, and approximately 7% had mixed views or questions. "   Oct. 4 , 2018 meeting minutes

I would suggest contacting Ms. Monroe from the panel's website and request another round of public comments.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited 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."

(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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
