Space is limited, so please register today 
if you would like to attend.

When: Thursday, February 28, 2019
Where: Governor Hill Mansion, 136 State Street, Augusta, ME 04330

8:00 - 9:30 a.m. Panel Session

9:30 - 10:00 a.m. Keynote Address from Governor Mills

 

What does the future hold? During Governor Mills' campaign, there was a clear focus on climate change initiatives, growing clean energy resources, and strategic electrification of the transportation sector, among other related goals. With Governor Mills' new administration, leadership transitions in the Department of Environmental Protection, a soon-to-be Office of Policy Innovation & The Future, and a variety of new policymakers in the Legislature, we will experience a transformation of environmental and energy initiatives here in Maine.

As a new administration begins its work, what will be its priorities? Will climate change mitigation and clean energy development remain a focus? Will it tackle transportation with 21st century solutions? Will the Legislature mirror these efforts?

Additional Speakers Include:

  • Chairman Seth Berry - Representative, Maine State Legislature, House Chair of Energy, Utilities, and Technology Committee
  • Katherine A. Joyce - Shareholder, Chair of Energy & Land Use and Environmental Practice Groups, Bernstein Shur (Moderator)
  • Melanie Loyzim - Deputy Commissioner, Maine Department of Environmental Protection
  • Hannah Pingree - Director, Governor's Office of Policy and Management
  • Joyce Taylor, P.E. - Chief Engineer, Maine Department of Transportation

"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.
