PPH - Regulators to approve Seabrook nuclear plant’s license extension

SEABROOK, N.H. – The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it plans to approve a license extension for New Hampshire’s Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant next week.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports regulators made the announcement Tuesday after holding another public hearing on concerns they were moving too quickly to approve the extension through 2050..............................................

All six Maine land based wind project bids rejected by State of Connecticut

All six land based Maine wind projects that had submitted proposals in response to Connecticut's "zero carbon" electricity RFP were rejected yesterday, 12/28/18. Southern New England may be starting to understand that non-dispatchable electricity is useless and unnecessary.

Two nuclear plants win 'zero carbon' energy contracts in Connecticut

Gov. Dannel Malloy on Friday announced the winners of a major clean energy procurement, and the selection of Millstone Power Station in Connecticut and Seabrook Nuclear Power Station in New Hampshire effectively secured the role of atomic power in the state's climate strategy.

Threat of shutdown hovers over negotiations between Millstone and utilities over power prices

Sounds like common sense is beginning to prevail.  Anyone who is against nuclear should read this provoking and logical article about a highly emotional subject: https://quillette.com/2019/02/27/why-renewables-cant-save-the-planet/

Any bets the dismissal of Maine wind projects will make "the powerline" project less than profitable? You can bet your bottom dollar they needed the second line in the 100 yard wide right-of-way to make things pay!

It looks like some folks are finally showing some sense.

High percentages of wind and solar require GWh and TWh scale storage

France has had 77 to 80 percent nuclear without storage for decades, and has among the lowest household electric rates in Europe

Germany, with poor winds and very marginal solar, has one of the highest household rates.

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."

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.
