Is Maine the Renewable Energy Credit Whore for southern New England?

The governor needs to stop talking and use his robust powers under the Maine state constitution to halt wind projects and reestablish sanity and the rule  of the law for the citizens of Maine.

Maine is not an energy plantation for interlopers such as Iberdrola and Avangrid ( and the states to the south).

Is Maine a sovereign state in our republic, or a renewable energy credit whore for southern New England?

LePage should answer that question and soon,…

SunEdison .Restraining Orders issued in another suit against SUNE ...possible next stop... Hades!

 SunEdison “could suddenly and rapidly become insolvent” or move to dissipate assets before the New York court could act on their bid to attach $150 million of assets, court papers say.

And this is the company Maine has looked to for many wind projects......

What does this say about those  in Maine State government stating the company has "Financial Capacity " to be permitted for…

SCREW MAINERS RIGHTS, THEN THEIR RATES..the plans in writing from SEC documents of IBERDROLA,UIL holdings and AVANGRID.

We all know that generation and transmission of utility electron generation(for example)  were separated decades ago so that Mainer's at least had some competition involved  to help control their electrical costs. Many considered this an  appropriate move by Maine state government and its PUC, which was supposed to protect the ratepayer and to   work for the citizens of the state (Not the Corporate Citizen).

Then came the  unfettered Crony Captialism and the…

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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
