Massachusetts 'Distributed Generation' Wind Energy Projects Set To Turn Maine Into A Sewer

Every wind turbine that goes up in Massachusetts goes up with a fight. 

Two distinct types of noise from the wind turbines known since wind turbine experiments in Boone, North Carolina in 1987 have come to haunt wind turbine installations. The types of noise are regulatory measured in decibels and low-frequency infrasound.  
 
The Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Moriarty on June 20, 2017, shut down two town-owned Falmouth wind turbines agreeing with the local Falmouth Zoning Board that the turbines are a nuisance.
 
Massachusetts has had extreme difficulties to situate even one large turbine project away from other property owners. Turbines proposed within a half-mile,2500 feet, of a home are almost certain to encounter resistance.
 
Massachusetts planned to place 2000 megawatts of wind turbines by the year 2020 but because of lawsuits all over Massachusetts, the program has stalled at around 110 megawatts of wind power.
 
Now Massachusetts state's biggest utilities plan to buy hundreds if not thousands of megawatts of electricity from wind farms in Maine.
 
The race is on between major wind turbine developers hoping to score long-term, wholesale power contracts with Massachusetts electric utilities.

The newer set of Democracy School online. Distribute to any others that may have an interest.
This may assist in knowing why RBO's can be an important method of protection.
Whether used as a protection measure or not, it is still educational.

A Right to protection. The function of Government. 2nd Amendment. When Government fails it's citizens, they are authorized to do so to their satisfaction by the 9th and 10th Amendments. This also reinforces the concept of Maine's ability of Home Rule, which is within Maine's Constitution. Powers not reserved to the Federal Government belong to the States, and those not reserved for the State belong to its citizens.

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.
