This is the conflict that frustrated Angus King and pushed John Baldacci to concoct the Expedited Wind Law

In 2006 Angus King testified in favor of the wind project in Reddington Nubble , le lost ,he got really frustrated ...so did John Baldacci ...the rest is history.

please see both articles in this post 

Q. How has the transition from governor to wind developer gone so far? How does being ex-governor help or hinder your efforts?

A. I was already 4 years out of office before starting Independence Wind, and I never dreamed of having anything to do with wind during…

And this all started when the RPS law designed by Angus King passed in 1999 !!!

Angus King , a man with a vision , passed the first RPS law in the nation in 1999 !!!

Maine was the greenest state in N.E. 

The law was improved  in 2012 , then gave birth to the Expedited law in  February 2008 , just 6 months before, King had started Record HiLL Wind LLC and put on his " the sky is falling , Maine will collapse  by 2020 if we do not jump on the Renewable wagon " dog and pony show on the road and in the media and academic circles " .....gas prices…

The Vermont ideologues are changing their tune! Stay Tuned .

“Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. ( Saul Alinsky )"

Looks like the PSB is applying Rule Number 8 from Saul Alinsky .....renewables in Vermont not really about global warming .....it is about jobs , stable electricity prices , stable economy . ...

Chris Recchia, indeed as Vermonters get more and more educated about the…

Is there such a thing as too much wind for a Utility company ? Apparently YES in Vermont!

And the plot gets thicker for wind developers in Vermont : the people are raising their voices in opposition to projects , GMP ( Green Mountain Power ) say : we have enough wind for the moment , a law was passed at the  last Legislature session increasing the need for renewables , and the Public Service Board  goes on permitting projects for the sake of the  "Public Good" ( which they never define except with some pictures of the 2006 BP oil spill ) ........this conundrum  is the symbol of a…

An excellent editorial on the false promise of wind power.

Vermont is on the move ...to common sense . I listened to Blittersdorf at the Addison county Democrats meeting a month ago,. He does not believe in adverse health effects of noise and gets angry when confronted with the power of MRI imaging to demonstrate brain responses when humans are exposed to very low frequencies (8 Herz). He calls people anti wind zealots when proper questions regarding emissions saving and definition of Public Good are sent to him. He wants 3000 MW of wind for…

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.
