Awesome. Very helpful. I suppose I could have dug those out with some research. Thank you! Now please do share your feelings (or analysis )of how stringent it is.

I posted a couple of files on the documents page that you may be interested in. Let me know if you would like anything more.

In response to your questioning who may have a copy of what I referenced - what would you like a copy of? I have copies of almost all documents pertaining to this project, including the draft Permit, initial application, and much more.

As to the "ordinance" passed by the town of Oakfield, well, I have my own feelings as to how stringent it is.

Could you please add a URL to the news article you posted - "More Sustainable Renewable Power for ME". Right now when I click on it I get a non-page.

Indeed, the PUC hearings are largely made up of paid reciters of the corporate line. That said, it is clear that there are many at war against the transmission upgrade and reading the transcripts reveals that many transmission upgrade opponents have not yet made the connection between the upgrade and the wind complexes. It is important that the two groups find each other and realize the similarity between our fights:

- a state government that is putting corporate interests above our welfare

- projects being jammed down our throats under false pretenses

- unnecessary projects

- scarring the landscape

- posing health risks

- feeding off the taxpayer or ratepayer - driving up the cost of living

- economically foolish

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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 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?" 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.”

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.
