Infrasound

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 ?…Continue

State lawmakers draft plan to unlock northern Maine’s renewable potential

State lawmakers draft plan to unlock northern Maine’s renewable potentialMaine Senate President Troy Jackson is proposing a transmission line to carry wind energy and other generation from northern Aroostook County to New England’s regional electric grid. Northern Maine wind power could be key to reaching the state's renewable energy goals, but further development depends on transmission. A solution may be on the horizon in the long-running debate over what to do about transmission in northern…See More

Governor Janet Mills To Carbon Tax Electricity

From the CEO of ISO-NE ( New England's regional wholesale electricity market):

  "Pricing carbon is the simplest, easiest, and most efficient way to ease this tension and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It could be implemented by state or federal policy, including through the existing Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative structure."

Good day Dan! Water power worked fine in Maine 100 years ago! No reason why small and large water power from Maine can on bring 20,000 jobs to our State! No dams needed today just water moving downhill to generator stations! And small water power being developed in all Maine schools, there are streams and rivers near most town in Maine! I have been working with The Dept. of Education for 30 years but they are slow in moving in a positive direction! Water power is the only truly clean power that runs for nothing 24 hours even day!! Taxation without representation when it comes to commercial wind power and they push up the national debt do they not?! Lenny Murphy 207-746-9212 Time to get real solutions within our future projects!

Dan,

Excellent letter to the editor in the RFT's yesterday!

Hey Dan. How many signatures do we need on the petition to get the ordinance language on the June ballot? And what is the deadline to get those signatures? Take care, Hart

Someone needs to find a way to let the public know what the wind ordinance is about and what is says. I blame our town officials for this lack of information being brought to the public.  Many people I have talked to have shot down the past attempts because they think saying "yes" means they are saying  "yes" to wind turbines in the area.  They need to know it is not "yes come put up turbines" but "yes we are restrincting them".  They must be informed in a way and wording people in general can understand.  Or, maybe I am wrong and I don't even understand.  People need to understand before going to the poles without having to attend meetings.  Just my thoughts.

Ha!  I agree; however, we also had Wendy Todd from Mars Hill and I doubt if we would have been successful without her appearance.  You could have heard a pin drop when she spoke at our informational meeting.  I wish everyone could see the videos of the Mars Hill residents being interviewed after their project went online, a lot of questions could be answered just by watching them.  What is amazing is how the opposition has grown in such a short time.  What was once phone calls (remember talking years ago??!) and emails between everyone has now become a Statewide coalition with websites and blogs, thanks to the more technical folks!  I have faith more projects will be voted down and much of Maine will remain special.

Hi Dan

I wish I had one dollar for every Roxbury resident who has recently exclaimed, "Wow, I didn't know they were going to be THAT big."   I hope all surrounding towns pay attention to size and location and the scam Big Wind represents.  What is sad is that Byron voted them out yet several of us have to be subjected to them.  What's even sadder is that one of our Selectwomen appeared at a Roxbury informational meeting and called all of us in Byron "dumb" for voting the way we did.

Dan,

Freemont will get me a DVD of the forum. I also contacted Mark Rogers directly and rec'd the spreadsheet. I also contacted Dan Fayen; Staff Writer and he stated the SunJournal didn't have enough room but he will be submitting an article and sending me a copy.

Dan did you or Alice get a copy of Mark Rogers financial spread sheet that he presented at the Wind Forum at Dirigo HS? If so, can you send me a copy via email?

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.
