The project is part of a $12 million plan in Maine and Canada to explore the potential of ultralocal, renewable energy supplies. Just why the regulators are revisiting what had been a closed case is, for the moment, a mystery............Maine’s investor-owned transmission utilities aren’t generally allowed to own electricity generation assets. But the law exempts projects that would allow utilities to own generation needed to run their operations efficiently. Emera argued to the…Continue

This short video asks and answers some of the most critical questions about "Renewable Energy" and what we can expect from our lunatic neighbors south of us. Wind energy "Storage" is still a technology that is NOT proven and is dangerous. Fires are commonplace and can not be fought with water as it makes very poisonous fumes and can cause explosions, BIG ONES! To a field of turbines connected to a battery pack, if a fire occurs, it has to be shut down as there is no place for the power…Continue

New England wind and solar electricity generation is much more expensive, c/kWh, than elsewhere in the US; wind electricity cost in the US south is even higher than in New England. See URLs and table 2.
Here is a partial list of the various subsidies for wind and solar that artificially lower their electricity costs. Those costs would be much higher without subsidies, and higher still with the addition of the costs of:
1) Peaking, filling-in, and balancing the…Continue

Do you put wind turbines in Stanton? No, but you'll go out in the country and you'll irritate a neighbor… so bad that they're talking about moving. ”…Continue
