Wind to improve grid reliability when the damn stuff can't be stored at grid scale? Who was behind this kind of reporting? Troy Jackson up in Aroostook seems like he could be salivating. The issue now heads back to the Maine Public Utilities Commission. The wind developer, Longroad Energy, is in large part the old coterie of crony capitalists from First Wind. See:…Continue
