Here’s a question for Kansas’s congressional delegation: Do you support raising gas and electricity bills in the Sunflower state by more than $750 in the next five years? That’s exactly what’s at stake with Congress’s upcoming vote to renew the wind Production Tax Credit (PTC).
This is what we here in Maine are facing also if the PTC is renewed. We need to have this letter put into the PPH, BDN, LSJ and other papers around the State, and write and copy this letter…Continue
Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel opinion piece that is very slanted toward the Wind side of the argument saying that LePage sent StatOil packing and continues to fight for hydro from Quebec. They still maintain that wind is priced comparable to hydro, coal, gas, etc. How do we let these liars and fabricators keep spewing the mis-facts they do? Offshore wind is going to be extraordinarily expensive to get up and running.…Continue
The vote is coming up! I hope there will be NO bill passed with Wind and Solar attached, but if they do get in, I hope a 4 year deal will finally rid us of the menace.…Continue

Schneider Electric, Vaisala Sign Global Wind Energy Forecasting Agreement
It seems as if there is free gub'ment money out there, there will be someone to find a way to collect it. And so there is a new alliance of two companies to create a way to predict wind and sell the results to the other Wind Vultures. What ever happened to standing on a hill and holding your wet finger up.…Continue
While the Wind Industry in this country has looked across the pond to Europe to point out what they are doing right, Europe is finally giving up the fraud of renewable Wind and Solar to power their nations. Britain is next.…Continue
The Tax Extenders Bill will be coming up by the end of the Legislative session in Washington. We are talking a total of $95 BILLION over ten years to give money to industries that already are up and running. $10.5 BILLION for Wind PTC over ten years. Why not put this money into something useful like Cancer research or REAL problems that face us in the future. …Continue

This bill is coming up. Please write your Senators and Congressmen or call their offices to let them know hydro would be a much better, cleaner, more reliable, and cheaper way to provide the power we will need for the future. We have the water, infrastructure and history of hydro here in Maine and should continue to pursue it. Modern hydro…Continue

In spite of a lot of setbacks, and still a bunch of roadblocks in the way, the Green Bunch are still holding up hopes that a 500 MW system can be put in offshore. I hope the PTC shoot down will put an end to all this foolishness. Running the hookup for the offshore turbines in Maine waters to hook up to the grid will be extraordinarily expensive, and raise rates again. That is ALL New infrastructure. …Continue
Maine is one of the states, cities, counties, etc that have joined the "Clean Power Plan". Here is a quote from NY State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
“The EPA’s Clean Power Plan is a critical step forward in responding to the threat of climate change. The rule is firmly grounded in science and the law,” states Schneiderman. “The rule incorporates successful strategies New York and other states have used to cut climate change pollution from power plants while maintaining…Continue
