Along the Canada-U.S. Border
Thrives a Bustling Electricity Trade

58.4 terawatt hours (TWh). That’s how much electricity Canada sends yearly into the U.S.—10 percent of all Canadian power generation. Newly added and proposed transmission lines will increase that trade. The Montana-Alberta Tie Line, completed in 2013, allows bidirectional flow of power primarily for new U.S. and Canadian wind farms. The proposed Champlain Hudson Power Express transmission project would allow more Quebec hydropower to flow into the New York City area. New England and New York accounted for 60 percent of the total U.S. imports of Canadian electricity in 2014, representing 12 to 16 percent of the region’s retail electricity sales. The eastern U.S. is a net importer of power, while Pacific Northwestern U.S. states are net exporters to British Columbia.

But Then....


"Canada needs more electricity,
International Energy Agency says"

The International Energy Agency estimates that Canada will need an additional 74 gigawatts of capacity by 2030 to meet both system demand growth and plant retirement needs – an addition equal to more than half of our existing electricity needs. The Canadian electricity industry is responding to this need by increasing its capital expenditure on infrastructure. These charts show the estimated need for new capacity and the industry’s capital expenditure on generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure over the past four years.

And Then....


Canada’s top wind generators being Enbridge and TransCanada.

Questons to ponder:

Fossil fuels - Black Energy supplemented by Green Energy. NAFTA ? Or does Canada Subsidize from profits made in the U.S. ?

Maybe we are trying to Wean ourselves from Canadian Power rather than Oil.......... Our destructive Green for their less destructive Hydro renewable's ?

Speaking of fraud.....

New York’s highest court dealt a blow to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for blocking access to public records that could reveal a coordinated campaign against global warming dissenters.

Most of Canada's Wind is West of Ottawa in the Plains areas like the U.S. 

If it were not for the federal mandate that each state must contribute to the goal, northern  New England would not be in the picture....... Though there still remains those states that contribute nothing in the way of wind, they may at some point face other methods if they  haven't taken steps to prevent it with an advanced warning.

If you noticed Penny, the majority of their Wind is owned by those that support the Oil Industry. These Fossil Fuel types are some of the heavy investors, other than the forced Tax Payers and Rate Payers.  This is but one of the connections back to the dirty Fossil Fuels that The Greenies (wind/solar) are getting funds from (whether they know it or not,  though probably do as they siphon government funds and create rate increases and expansions) Oil is needed to produce these devices and components.  Hedge your bets, in case Oil Tanks........... the money still flows via their toe hold in the early investment.

what baffles me is that Canada even bothers with wind power.  Hydro is their golden egg.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
