Misinformation is derailing renewable energy projects across the United States

March 28, 20225:00 AM ET

Julia Simon

On a winter night in early 2016, Jeremy Kitson gathered in his buddy's large shed with some neighbors to plan their fight against a proposed wind farm in rural Van Wert County, Ohio. The project would be about a mile from his home.

From the beginning, Kitson — who teaches physics and…

By Greg Kesich Editorial Page Editor

EXCERPTS:

..........Americans are desperately looking for ways to aid Ukraine and punish Russia that fall short of war between two nuclear superpowers. The best way would be to speeding up the transition…

An energy reality check (Ellsworth American letter)

March 4, 2022

Dear Editor:

To Mr. Hylan of Brooklin regarding my “homework” [“Some homework assignments,” Feb. 24]:

While readily apparent that my “hysterical” commentary struck a nerve with Mr. Hylan of Brooklin, I missed the “many inaccuracies” he alludes to in his rebuttal. The snow did cover the solar panels, the wind did stop and these alternative energy sources did not work, period. Will that be forever? I didn’t say that, as each of these fuels will play a role in…

Lisa Linowes: Windaction Group opposes Massachusetts removal of offshore wind price cap

In the 5 years from 2015 to 2019, Massachusetts ratepayers were billed over $4 billion in above market energy costs to support state-mandated renewable energy policies. Much of this higher cost has been shielded by persistently low natural gas prices, but this is changing quickly as the US enters a period of higher priced energy. Residential electricity prices in the Commonwealth are one…

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.
