yes Paula .

among other things this too struck me , because this is of course exactly what happened in Maine with the Expedited law .

Each time we tried to modify, amend or rescind any aspect of the wind law, the wind industry advocates said in opposition to our proposals: " We need clarity , certainty ,stability " or " this will affect our profit margin ".

It is also why they fight so hard to keep the PTC going and In my ripe old age I have never seen an industry supported with so much gusto while offering obviously an inferior and costly  product .

With the implementation of an " institutional governance structure" ( executive , legislative and judicial powers in the same bed) the decks are stacked .

Obviously Baldacci and Co played that card very well in 2007.

I can't say I read every word and explored every page but noted the following quotes:

Implement regulations to level the play field against non-renewable energy sources.

Because innovation is not limited to technological advances, energy officials in government will need to work closely with those in other departments and ministries, such as in finance, industry, science and agriculture. A major challenge for policy-makers is to design and implement an institutional governance structure for innovation in the energy sector that includes all relevant actors but also limits the burden to innovators of heavy bureaucracy.

The main role of governments will be the establishment of regulations and market incentives that drive evolution in technology, greater efficiency and cost reductions.

My days of studying the philosophy of capitalism, free market economies, etc. are long buried in the deep brain cells and irretrievable, but it seems to me that no government is economically sound enough at this point in time to be a financer of an unproven technology. And even if governments were more financially stable, a proven technology shouldn't require their assistance. It could rise to the top on its own. Again with the all wise bureaucrats picking winners and losers and deciding what's best for us all. (but you note they warn of avoiding 'heavy bureaucracy')  Regardless of what we want for ourselves. OMG, did that sound like a Trump supporter??? No Way......

Perhaps complete ecnomic collapse is the going to be the only way to end this madness.  Nuclear phobia is understandable, but molten salt reactors are the only "clean" safe power source we have that can meet the needs of a very power hungry world without producing CO2.

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."

******** 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.
