As the climate cabal (think John Kerry and AOC) scurries to distort the truth the disaster during Texas's polar vortex event, rationals minds are exposing the consequences of renewable dependeance and the kabuki theater of the scam known as the Green New Deal.
This report gets to the heart of the delusion: …Continue
Mr. Ismay is no longer a member of the Mass Department of Climate Zealots.
Biden's wasting no time in getting the grift of renewables back in action. Mills will retract her moratorium soon.

There you have it, the wind and solar crowd got an extension on subsidies in the latest $900MM stimulus bill and the Maine delegation was all in. This could unleash a storm of new development in Maine. I encourage everyone who cares about this beautiful state to call all of our esteemed representatives in DC and express your outrage. If you haven't seen the obscene spending in this bill, here it is:
$25 Million for Pakistan…Continue
Looks like MA isn't shopping out-of-state for renewables these days - good news for ME.
Over the past two weeks in two separate public meetings (The Forks and Jackman), CMP stated they would connect wind project to an AC line to accommodate wind development in western Maine/Moosehead Region. They would run a separate AC line in the currently proposed DC trans corridor. The results to the region would be devastating. We must stop the hydro line. If it gets denied, the likelihood of an AC line being approved is seriously diminished.

MACleanEnergy has chosen Northern Pass as the sole winner in the MACleanEnergy RFP. Maine will be spared.
Yesterday, the Land Use Planning Commission voted unanimously to deny NextEra's request to expand the expedited wind area by 25000 acres to accommodate their proposed industrial wind farms (Moose and Alder Stream Wind) in western Somerset and Franklin counties. The denial is a huge setback for NextEra's bid for a 20 year renewable energy contract with MA as part of their MA Clean Energy RFP. NextEra will have to go through the legislature to get the EWA expansion. Given the solid opposition…Continue
Massachusetts has released it's latest RFP for renewables for a 2022 delivery. This will drive a devastating acceleration of wind farm and transmission corridor development - MCPC and MEPCO. Currently, there are 2335 megawatts (estimated 700 turbines) of proposed projects with the prospects of more due to the scale of this massive request from…Continue
I received notification (www.cleanenergyrfp.com) that the Evaluation Team has finalized its work and selected the winning bidders. The results will be announced in March 2017. Once the contracts are finalized, they will be sent to regulatory authorities for approval.
As part of the liquidation of assets going on in the SunEdsion bankruptcy, the court has moved to liquidate a portion of the company's North American Utilities, LLC wind and solar assets. The only asset for sale in Maine is the proposed Somerset Wind project - a 26 turbine/85.8MW project to be sited on Misery Ridge just west of Moosehead Lake. Based on court documents, NRG is the stalking horse buyer. Somerset Wind is a bidder in the ISO/NE renewable RFP for southern New England with NextEra…Continue

Weyerhaeuser has withdrawn its request for substantive review of the petition for removal request submitted by residence in the Moosehead region. The Moosehead Region Futures Committee has been actively opposing SunEdison's 26 turbine wind development on a site owned by Weyerhaeuser west of Moosehead Lake.
The following is the press release from the Moosehead Region Futures Committee announcing Weyerhaeuser's withdrawal.
The recent claim in the Maine Biz story by FMM/CP O'Neil that they assisted 36 UT's in the EPA removal process is blatantly untrue. Of the 40 files on the LUPC site, 14 petitions were filed by citizens in the Moosehead region - O'Neil had nothing to do with these petitions. I also expect that he had nothing to do with Lexington, Molunkus, and Carroll.
Signs are back up - we agree with Eric Tuttle - most likely Muzzy called Augusta and complained - MEDOT has some explaining to do. Why where MRFC's sign conficsated and the others that weren't in compliance were left??
October will be a busy month for Saving Maine's statewide media campaign with new :60 radio spots and newspaper ads supporting the "Truth About Wind" campaign - all leading up to the election on November 4th.

As we stated in May, Saving Maine's statewide public education program highlighting "The Truth About Wind Power" would take a summer hiatus around July 4th and resume with statewide radio in August. Starting Monday, August 18th, we will be running three radio commercials ("Poor Wind," "Wind Exporters," and "Goodbye Saddleback") on WGAN and WVOM. The radio schedule runs through September. The highly successful newspaper program will return after Labor Day -- it will run through the…Continue
Can't thank everyone who has donated to the Saving Maine campaign so far. Today was a great day at the "donate" button. Every dollar we raise goes to telling the truth about wind power and other environmental challenges facing Maine. So thank you all and tell your friends to show their support for the new campaign. We're in the Sun Journal, Kennebec Journal, and Morning Sentinel on Tuesday. We hope you like the ads and the messages - stay tuned. More good things on the way.

Saving Maine's ad campaign is appearing this weekend in the Maine Sunday Telegram and BDN weekend edition with two ads per edition. It's also running in the Tuesday (7/1) editions of the Kennebec Journal, Waterville Sentinel and Sun Journal. Two ads will be in each edition as well. We are working on a plan to include radio this Summer. As always, this cost money and we appreciate all of you who have contributed over the past couple of weeks. Keep hitting that "donate" button at…Continue
We're finishing up a very strong opening week with ads in the weekend edition of the BND and the Maine Sunday Telegram. Two hard hitting ads in each paper will be seen by tens of thousands of Mainers and tourists over this coming weekend. Something to look forward to on Sunday morning. Saving Maine web site traffic has been very strong as well - visits were up again yesterday after ads ran in the PPH. The FW/Enron ad was very poignant given the EMERA deal and Bowers denial. Please take Brad…Continue
