The DEP will have a public meeting from 6 to 8 pm in the Clifton meeting room. The Silver Maple application can be accessed on the DEP website. Comments can be sent to Jessica Damon or be made at the meeting. This is a 20 mw facility as compared to the 9 mw facility already on Pisgah Mountain. The turbines will be 4.0 mw as compared to the 1.9 existing turbines. The height of the towers will be much higher and the cumulative impact on the natural resources of…Continue

The current Pisgah Mountain LLC wind energy facility here in Clifton is not enough for the foreign SWEB corporation. Starting in 2016, SWEB has been getting its ducks in a row for another attack on our community. In 2016, it bought out about half of Pisgah's land area, over 100 acres, to add to its 49% ownership of the Pisgah facility and SWEB took out a 5 year option to buy an adjacent large tree growth parcel whose owner had refused to support…Continue

this explains a lot.
Basically this article is supportive of nuclear energy, but it has some other good points and facts. And gives the real data for contradicting the Denmark and Germany wind energy fable of happily ever after.
We now know that, in the real world, electricity grid managers cope with the unreliability of solar by firing up petroleum and natural gas generators.
As such — while there might be good reasons to continue to subsidize the production of solar…Continue

Wind farms -- which now account for about a fifth of the state’s power mix -- are forecast to generate significantly less electricity this week as the heat builds and keeps turbines from spinning. Wind generation may peak at about 5,900 megawatts on Thursday and 6,900 megawatts Friday, less than two-thirds of what they totaled a week earlier, according to grid manager Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or…Continue

Don't know about anyone else, but last week's few days of bitter cold weather didn't make me any more or less believing in 'global warming'.
We need more than weather statistics and computer models to justify all the consequential, societal, environmental and economic upheaval that has come as part of the energy policies foisted on us by the climate change enforcers. …Continue

Thank you those who have made comments to the PUC relating to Pisgah Mtn LLC being morphed into Austrian wind company WEB and how that looks to be contrary to the intent of the Community-Based Renewable Energy Program. Today Pisgah filed a new motion with the PUC asking for all information to be kept confidential. In other words, asking the PUC to not expose their attempt to conceal the LLC's lack of financing.
If you can, please go to the Maine PUC website and go to case file…Continue
