I Wonder How Much Our Rates Will Go Up With This Project?

A $2 Billion electric line from Canada to Massachusetts by Emera and Bangor Hydro.  With the $1.4 Billion grid upgrades costing us 12.5% and 19% already, I guess this will be another increase for us.  Why can't they just leave us alone?…

A Reply to Charles Colgan's Energy Article in BDN

I sent this to the BDN for publishing as an OpEd.  Will see if it gets printed.

 

A Reply to Charles Colgan and his “Cheap, Dirty Coal” Article

 

What really scares me is having an economist like Charles Colgan teach our young people economic theory.  He is completely antithetical to solid economic reasoning, something that most of the liberal economists continue to try and push down our throats.  He believes that imposing onerous taxes and fees on certain…

The Wind Scam In California and Hypocracy

I just got back from a trip to Southern California.  We have a real issue here in Maine with wind, but when you see the ugly mess they have made out there, I guess we should consider ourselves lucky.  Turbines in Maine are spaced every few thousand feet . . . out there the turbines are spaced just far enough apart that the blades wont hit when they spin, and they cover miles and miles and thousands of acres.  This is a fairly industrial area and is not all that beautiful to begin with, but…

Grand Lake Pictures

I just looked at Bill Beavers' post of the pictures of what Grand Lake will look with wind turbines.  While those pictures show what everyone knows will happen, the truly sad picture is when the sun goes down and the flashing red lights on the towers, and the white strobes on the control towers destroy the dark-sky viewing of our universe.  For those of you who have not had that experience, take a ride to the Lincoln Lakes area at night and see what I am talking about.  There are pictures…

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/
