Since 2008, the Maine PUC has approved 4 wind projects, 1 biomass project and 0 hydro projects for long term renewable energy contracts. This is getting old and is starting to smell akin to Alfond's abuse of power to aid wind during the last legislative session.
HOW OPPORTUNE FOR THESE WIND PROJECTS TO GET AN APPROVAL JUST 2 WEEKS BEFORE A COMMISSIONER'S RETIREMENT.
1" Chairman Welch took part in this decision during a Deliberation Session held on December 16, 2014 in which the commission voted two to one in favor of approving these two term sheets. Chairman Welch retired from the Commission on December 31, 2014 and was replaced as Chairman by Commissioner Vannoy."
2." Commissioner Vannoy dissented in this decision."
