BDN:NO, WIND POWER ISN'T COMPETITIVE WITH CONVENTIONAL SOURCES !

 

AS  WE  HAVE SAID  SINCE  THE INCEPTION OF OUR  GROUP , INDUSTRIAL  WIND  POWER REQUIRES  COSTLY  NEW  TRANSMISSION  LINES  TO  BRING ELECTRONS FROM ISOLATED  WIND  FARMS INTO  THE GRID.

THOSE  NEW  LINES  RAISE THE  COST  OF ELECTRICITY FOR ALL N-E  RATEPAYERS !

WE APPRECIATE MARK  BROWN ARTICLE AS  IT CONNECTS THE CONCERNS OF  TWO  GROUPS OF  INDIVIDUALS  :RATEPAYERS  AND WIND POWERS  OPPONENTS ; WE  ARE ON  THE SAME  PAGE : THE  WRONG ECONOMICS  OF WIND POWER…

MAINE SUNDAY TELEGRAM - MAINE IS SACRIFICED FOR CONNECTICUT'S "GREEN" AGENDA

HOW  SMART WAS  THEN GOVERNOR ANGUS KING TO PASS THE FIRST RPS LAW IN  THE COUNTRY IN 1997?   VERY SMART!  HE THEN BECAME A WIND DEVELOPER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE POLICY HE CREATED.

SADLY NOW,  MAINE, THE STATE HE NOW REPRESENTS IN THE US SENATE, WILL BECOME A TURBINE PLANTATION,  WITH  THOUSANDS  OF  MONSTROUSLY HUGE  WIND TOWERS  WAVING THEIR ARMS ENDLESSLY OVER LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF SQUARE MILES OF  MAINE'S MOST SCENIC LANDSCAPES TO SATISFY RPS ENERGY POLICIES IN OTHER STATES.…

CALL TO ACTION TO SAVE BOWERS MOUNTAIN AND THE GRAND LAKES

Folks, this is important!

 

The DEP followed the letter of the Expedited Wind Law and  DENIED First Wind's application to put turbines on Bowers Mountain overlooking eight ponds designated  by the state as "scenic resources of state or national significance".  First Wind (and the landowner) have appealed that denial to the Board of Environmental Protection.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

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.
