While U.S. Senate candidate Angus King was busy discussing the ethical benefits of selling his company, behind the scenes Independence Wind was becoming part of a congressional probe into inappropriate federal loan guarantees.Despite an increasingly tangled timeline, the former governor’s campaign maintains he had no knowledge of the probe.
Congressional investigators sent an official letter to…Continue
Angus King lectures the unwashed commoner that if we don't allow his feckless wind turbines to destroy our Gardens of Eden in Maine, we are contributing to global warming.
We have of course proven this 100% false. The turbines displace virtually no CO2.
But take a look at Angus's 40" RV that guzzles gas like no other.
Its name is Molly.
But perhaps a better name would be the "Do…Continue
In view of Angus King's intention to seek election to the US Senate, and in light of recent revelations about the lack of justification for the Federal Loan Guarantee that Record Hill Wind sought and was granted, I am reposting (1) the following blog post as well as (2) my comment to the DOE during the public comment period on the loan application, and (3) the relevant section of the report titled,…Continue
I wonder whether this will also finally get some sunlight on the mysterious Delaware registered highly secretive partner of King's in this deal - "Bayroot", perhaps named after the college drinking game of same name. Of course that just might make sense as after a couple years or so it was finally revealed who this company was - the ultra well endowed Yale University Endowment Fund.…Continue

Just a quick note: In the Lewiston Sun Journal there was a short article on nominations. I found out that 2 selectmen, Steve Donahue and Norrine Clark's terms are set to expire.
Therefore, I went right to the town office and took out papers and will be running for one of these seats. I only need 25 signatures for the nomination papers, which will not be a problem. Wish me luck.
As of March 15 the UMPI turbine website reported the turbine, after a "down" period of months for repair, had been generating power for 126 days; "180,240 kWh since 2nd week of November". There is no other information - the software needs "fine tuning",
Operating perfectly in ideal wind the UMPI turbine is "rated" to generate 600 kW, or 14,400 kWh per day
It has been in operation 126 days since early November.
14,400 kwh X 126 = 1,814,400 kwh. This woud be 100%…Continue

Does anyone have any new information on when the PTC will be presented to Congress AGAIN? Or if there is any deadline when these carpetbaggers can't submit it to Congress?

As I travelled West on Route 2 in Dixfield just before the center of town, I looked to my left at the Woodstock wind project and low and behold not a single turbine was spinning. Proof positive of the absolute inefficiency of these abberations.
