Ellsworth American Editorial Blasts Wind Power Development in Maine

The Ellsworth American Newspaper clearly understands the issues regarding the proliferating wind scourge in Maine.  Its good they do, as the stretch of small mountains and ridges along Maine's remote Downeast Coastal region are targeted for heavy wind power development following theBull Hill project.  The problem is all this region consists of Unorganized Territories and tiny towns and plantations all enveloped by the heinous Expedited Wind Permitting Zone.

Here is an excellent quote…

LD 828 and voter statistics by Town

Under LD 828, to remove your township, plantation or municipality from the Expedited Permitting Area, you must submit a petition to LUPC requesting it. It must be in a format provided by LUPC and include the signatures of at least 10% of the number of registered voters residing in the township, plantation, municipality or portion thereof that voted in the most recent gubernatorial election.

To find out how many of your township's registered voters actually voted last…

And We're Off!

I know we have already been paying for transmission upgrades!  But how are Bangor Hydro customers going to bear the brunt of this?

Looks like Connecticut Doesn't Trust Iberdrola

After seeing what Iberdrola has done in Maine, it looks like they are getting a rejection from our neighbors to the south.  Why couldn't our PUC have seen through Iberdrola before we got taken?

" The Alliance for Responsible Siting of Alternative Energy Installations". Please check it out !!!

 A new organization has been started in MA by Tom Thompson who lives in Scituate , MA where the turbine installed in his town has created a nightmare of noise and shadow flicker for the adjacent residents . Tom has been advocating for appropriate siting for some times while the efforts to demand that the State conducts noise testing have been largely ignored.

I believe that joining Tom in his effort is part of the coalition building we need to develop, as New Englanders , to protect…

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(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/
