Has anyone got any research data or articles or studies on infrasound and wind turbines ?  Is it a coincidence wind developers compare turbine sound with refrigerators ? ...................................http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/Doc/158512/0042973.pdf

Does this sound correct : 

Massachusetts Renewable Energy Credit Problem
 
Massachusetts officials thought the stalled offshore wind would accelerate their renewable program, so they increased the percentage of renewables that "investor-owned utilities" must offer by the standard offer from 1 % to 2%, which will now send  Renewable Energy Credits through the roof.
Massachusetts has committed to a clean energy plan of being 80% carbon-free by 2050.
 
The plan is called the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, RPS. The plan started in 2003 requiring a 1 percent increase per year of a utility's portfolio to come from renewable energy. New legislation doubled the requirement to increase 2 percent per year starting in 2020. As of 2018, the percentage was 13 percent. 
 
The Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, RPS only applies to "Investor Owned Utilities" which are well-known in Massachusetts. There are over 40 Municipal Electric Utilities that serve up to 50 towns that don't have to purchase renewable energy credits and there are no requirements for up to 15 percent of these town utilities. 
 
Class I RECs are generated by renewable energy facilities in New England that began operation after 1997 and create electricity from solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, wind, small hydro, aerobic digester gas, geothermal, landfill methane, marine energy, and biomass fuel. In addition non-emitting resources such as the stalled large hydro from Canada transmission project contracted by the state’s electric distribution companies from a 2017 solicitation. 
 
The Canada hydro project has taken longer than expected to begin construction and in the meantime, "Investor Owned Utilities" must use Class 1 RECs to fill the void, or pay the CEC ACP which is equal to 50% of that of the Class 1 REC ACP. In 2021, that’s 50% of $60, or $30 and in 2022, that’s 50% of $40, or $20. This serves to tighten the Class 1 REC market to some extent, although when pricing is above the CEC ACP, Class 1 RECs will not be used. 
 
Any Retail Electricity Supplier that is required to comply with the Massachusetts RPS and APS regulations may, if necessary, discharge some or all of its obligations by making an Alternative Compliance Payment (ACP) in the appropriate amount to the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC).
 
The Massachusetts electric ratepayer never gets a break?

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.
