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.

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…Continue
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…Continue
“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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
PLEASE MAINERS WAKE UP AND OPPOSE THIS NIGHTMARE IN YOUR TOWNS. THE POLITICIANS WILL NOTICE .
WIND DEVELOPERS DO NOT LIKE TO BE BAD NEIGHBOURS. IT IS BAD FOR THEIR INVESTORS SO THEY CAJOLE , SEDUCE AND BRIBE WITH CRUMBS.
IT IS TIME TO SAY NO TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANISATIONS
IT IS TIME TO SAY NO TO THE DEVELOPERS

IT IS TIME TO SAY YES…Continue
In response to Public Law 2015, Chapter 265 “An Act to Improve Regulatory Consistency within the Jurisdiction of the Maine Land Use Planning Commission,” the LUPC announces a new web page that describes the petition process to remove areas from the expedited permitting area for wind energy development. The site also allows interested individuals to self-subscribe to an email notice list.…Continue
I apologize for the repeat nature of this message,but this is a very important opportunity to have our voices heard.
The wind scandal that Mike Bond has unveiled in his book " Killing Maine "is the scandal that we are victims of , the scandal that we have lived in our fibers and souls . Mike's book will strike the media and his readers much more deeply if real victims or real wind warriors emphasize the facts that the book describes. So tomorrow such an…Continue
Company officials want more time to address DEP concerns about potential impact on bird mortality, with a goal of refiling the application.Continue
WISCONSIN: You may recall the Town of Forest v. Wisconsin PSC involving the Highland Wind project. In February 2013, Wisconsin's Public Service Commission denied a permit for the project due to noise concerns, but Emerging Energies (the developer) urged the commission to reopen the case, citing new technology that permitted the project owner to…Continue
In the surreal world of battling wind power, lawsuits are numerous, long, costly and too often favoring the industry. Not in this case!
In July 2014, the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) issued their first eagle take permit to EDF Renewable Energy for the Shiloh IV wind project in Solano County, CA.
In response to comments requesting a longer term in order to provide lasting certainty for developers, on Dec. 9, 2013, the FWS had extended the maximum term to…Continue
