BDN - Maine PUC approves rolling back solar credits

AUGUSTA, Maine — It didn’t go far enough for Gov. Paul LePage, but Maine utility regulators rankled advocates on Tuesday when they rolled back a policy allowing homeowners with solar panels to be credited for excess power sold to the grid.

The move was opposed by pro-solar groups, and it’s likely to be followed by another bid in the Maine Legislature to liberalize solar policy........Dylan Voorhees, clean energy director for the Natural Resources Council of Maine, called the…

BDN: ISO-New England Discusses Maine Wind and Transmission

On land, 97 percent of that wind power is proposed for Maine, which still requires significant power line improvements to get electricity from wind-rich areas to population centers. The same goes for getting Canadian hydropower into the New England system.

“Connecting wind farms in northern New England or bringing hydro energy from Canada will require extensive transmission expansion, which will be costly and take years to build,” van Welie said.

Considering offshore wind…

LUPC releases draft decision for Carroll Plt Removal

It looks like Carroll Plt will be removed from the Expedited Wind Permitting Area!

Thanks those responsible for Public Law 2015, Chapter 265 which secured the citizens' rights to challenge the expedited designation.

Thanks to all who signed the petition, wrote letters and testified that Carroll should never have been expedited in the first place.…

Coming to America- A massive slaughter and with it, rapidly declining bald eagle populations

A massive wind turbine slaughter to bald eagles is coming to America.   Will President Trump drain this section of the DC swamp?         

 If not this ongoing eagle slaughter that has been kept hidden, will escalate to great proportions. Bald Eagle habitat all over the country will be abandoned and the green mafia will lie to you…

The FWS Eagle Extermination Plan

The FWS Eagle Extermination Plan

Multi-Millions Gone With The Wind in Massachusetts That Installed Known Stolen Technology

As a Massachusetts resident I feel sorry for our Northern neighbors burdened by our policies.

It's pretty bad when 60 Minutes finds interest in the renewables sector here.

Massachusetts' American Superconductor AMSC became the subject of CBS 60 minutes “The Great Brain Robbery” regarding the theft by China’s Sinovel of AMSC wind turbine technology.  This is an International industrial espionage thriller yet to be written. …

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/
