Here is a review of important events of the past year related to neighbors of the wind turbines on Vinalhaven.
Last August, FIWN (Fox Islands Wind Neighbors) appealed in Superior Court against the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). For two years, neighbors of the Vinalhaven wind turbines fought for restoration of the peace and quiet they used to enjoy.
The neighbors sought to obtain compliance on the violation of state noise standards.…

From snowmobile clubs to fire departments to historical societies, and from fuel assistance funds to youth programs to libraries; the wind industry in Maine has a long history of spreading its money around the communities wherein it hopes to build grid-scale industrial wind facilities.
The latest example of a wind corporation’s ‘largesse’ here in Maine can be…Continue
The DEP's "third party" noise expert, Warren Brown, has until now maintained that measurement of low frequency turbine noise is "preliminary and unrefined". Studies like this should help Brown accept the mounting evidence that turbine noise causes Wind Turbine Syndrome and needs to be regulated accordingly.

at one time I read that Maine's 8% share in transmission upgrade for ISONE was $5,000 a household.
I think it was Paten Pete? true?

"In EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2011, wind’s generation in 2030 is projected to be 159 billion kilowatt hours, about 70 percent higher than wind generation in 2010, but still a mere 3.2 percent share of generation. In EIA’s recent analysis evaluating an 80 percent clean energy standard by 2050, wind generation nearly doubles from the agency’s prediction in the Annual Energy Outlook by 2035. But an almost doubling in wind generation only provides a 6.3 percent share. EIA’s analysis of a 25…Continue

Hello Willem Post - Sorry, I simply do not know how to do a spreadsheet. I am 79 years old and most details of the internet have escaped me. But you have a very good idea; I hope someone will spot this and do the project for you.
To me, it is self-evident that actual power production (and the lack thereof) will eventually prove to be the deciding factor in whether the turibnes will endure. From what I have seen in monitoring the UMPI turbine's poor output for 2.5 years, inland…Continue
