EFFICIENCIES OF WOOD STOVES IN THE US AND IN EUROPE

The available heat of fuel is measured in British thermal units (Btu), and each type of fuel has a specific Btu content per unit of fuel. By definition, one Btu is the heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by 1F. Natural gas has a heat value of about 100,000 Btu per 100 cubic feet. One CCF is also called a therm.Propane has a heat value of about 92,000 Btu per gallon.No. 2 heating oil has a heat value of about 140,000 Btu per gallon.A kilowatt-hour (kwh) of electricity…See More

DARTMOUTH BIOMASS BOILER EMISSIONS EQUIVALENT TO 351 WOOD-FIRED HOUSEHOLD STOVES AT ONE POINT

Dartmouth College was planning to replace the existing oil-fired central steam heating plant with a tree-burning hot water heating plant.

Dartmouth College held several public meetings during which there were numerous objections from nearby residents regarding the up to 16 eighteen-wheelers per day delivering wood chips, and regarding the harmful air pollution of the plant.

Dartmouth College present and former environmental professors also were opposed to the wood-burning…

It funny that they need 10 cents a kw to be solvent. Going back to Livermore windmills in 1983-5 wholesale coal by wire was like 1/4 cent per kw and wind power got .10 per kw as a subsidy. After all these years people are so stupid and gullible! .10 cents needed to burn trees. Funny the left out hydro and atomic power???
 
 
 

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.
