We just hit the 100 day mark of the second year of the UMPI turbine and for these 100 days, only 8.89% of nameplate capacity has been achieved.
That's pretty far from the 100% nameplate figures and related stats that the wind industry constantly touts.
Since this is the only official state-sanctioned in-the-field active data providing experiment with a technology that could destroy much of Maine's core essence, perhaps it is time to investigate all electrical…Continue

CMP has told Mainers that the MPRP upgrade is needed because our power lines are 40 years old. But we know the real reason is so that spurting wind, however intermittent, require new lines to prevent thermal overload. Below it states that the benefit of this project is for interstate transport of electricity. What that means is that the ratepayer is being forced to pay for new transmission, without which, the already subsidized wind companies would not have a way to sell their…Continue
