Sounds like First Wind is trying to downplay the potentially looking cessation of the mega-giveaway called the PTC. It also sounds as though they are positioning this as an occasional speed bump and that the "free money" always gets reinstated.
IT IS HIGH TIME WE STOP THE PTC ONCE AND FOR ALL AS WELL AS ALL OTHER GIFTS TO THESE INSIDER CORPORATIONS.
Maine’s growing wind power industry has also come to rely on a production tax credit that…Continue
The PPH has a poll up on it's home page and we need to vote "no" before they take it down. Take time this morning and vote to stop the killing Eagles and other wildlife by the wind industry. It will take you 2 minutes and a big turnout is critical to keeping pressure on the media to shine a bright light on the facts about wind power in Maine. Vote now!

Mr. Lutz had difficulty posting, so asked that we post this heart-felt letter to Maine Audubon for him.
For Immediate Release
Friends of Maine's Mountains calls on Maine Audubon to disclose its financial ties to industrial wind and retract its new report that fails to…Continue
The Business and Consumer Court (Judge Horton presiding) "grants the appeal of Peter and Julie Beckford and vacates the approval of Pisgah's industrial wind energy project." The sentence pretty much leapt off page 1 of the December 11 decision. As our favorite Red Sox announcer would say, "Had 'em all the way!"
So maybe travelers won't be seeing five 450' turbines as they pass Bangor on the interstate. Maybe life will return to normal for the many Clifton residents who have had to…Continue

I'm sure it's due to the Wyoming case where Duke Energy was held criminally (convicted) liable for killing eagles at a number of their wind farms. So, the President is going to ask Congress to pass a 30 year exemption for the developers so they can kill these poor animals without any recourse. I wonder if the developers in Maine have secured their permits to kill eagles - maybe we should call and ask the Audubon Society to comment.

We have recently been bombarded by supporters of wind power saying that the cost of wind generated electricity is at or near parity with conventional generation. As usual, the zealots have found ways to twist information and conveniently ignore information in the perpetually desperate scheme to push acceptance of wind power. Willem Post is a brilliant analyst with great credentials. His conclusion: the total levelized cost* of wind energy averages $151/MWh…Continue
