BOWERS PROJECT DEFEATED!!

AN EPIC FAIL FOR FIRST WIND

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court issued its decision denying Champlain Wind LLC's appeal concerning a permit for its Bowers Wind Project in Carroll Plt and Kossuth Twp. Champlain Wind is a subsidiary of Maine's largest wind developer, First Wind. The decision marks the end of a six year process of hearings and appeals which pitted the wind developer against local residents, professional guides, traditional sporting camp owners and loyal visitors to Maine's famed Downeast Lakes Region. Spearheading the opposition was the Partnership for the Preservation of the Downeast Lakes Watershed (PPDLW).

Joe Biden and one of this nation's all time fraudulent wind energy studies

 It's no coincidence that Joe Biden has two homes located in a state that produced one of the all time fraudulent wind energy mortality studies. This study was conducted about 8 years ago while he was Obama's vice President.One of these homes is located about 5 miles from the University of Delaware's Lewes Wind Turbine. The first year of operation this turbine killed at least 2 Ospreys. An established Osprey nest (web Cam) located near this turbine, failed. “Our osprey pair had a difficult 2011…See More

Who is EDPR?

EDPR, hoping to build Maine's largest wind factory in The County, likes to say they're from Texas. Click on the box above and you'll see their parent, Energias de Portugal is owned by China Three Gorges which is owned by the People's Republic of China. Protect the United States Treasury from foreign subsidy feeders and protect The County - just say NO.

    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/
