The Plan to Kill Off Electricity, The RGGI Plan

  • RGGI sells allowances. Each allowance represents a ton of C02 emissions from power plants. The power plants expected to purchase these allowances are participants in RGGI. They become participants by decision of State Legislatures who enroll in RGGI by writing a law to that effect.
  • All natural gas-fired and oil-fired plants that have nameplate capacity over 25 megawatts are required to purchase allowances from RGGI and include the cost…

Energy Policies Promoting Renewables Increases Electricity Prices Rapidly

This graph completely debunks the notion that renewables suppress the wholesale costs of electricity in the New England Market.

In this graph, Carbon Dioxide costs to fossil fuel generation plants are monetized to dollars per megawatt hour. CO2 costs are applied by the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the costs to generators are passed to electricity customers. It is a…

By PAULA TRACY, InDepthNH.org

CONCORD – An announcement Wednesday from the Biden Administration that it is on track to offer a lease auction for commercial scale offshore wind for the Gulf of Maine this year, “puts the state on notice” that if it wants the jobs and the investment which comes from this renewable source “we’ve got to work on it now,” said state Sen. David Watters, D-Dover.

Watters said that the Gulf of Maine, off the state’s shores is known as a “sweet spot” with…

Nobody wants EV's

Assault and Batteries

The totalitarian occupiers of the White House and their puppeteers are shoving these things down our throats, yet the public understands they are near useless in most situations, costing a fortune and then costing even more with all the government subsidies and likely effects on electricity rates, a result of the mindless arrogant plan for "electrification."

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/

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law
