Biden To Visit Somerset Massachusetts This Week But Not Falmouth

Brayton Point is the site of a former coal-fired power plant that operated until its retirement in June of 2017.
President Joe Biden is set to visit the site of the old coal-fired Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset Massachusetts sometime this week.
 
An offshore wind company, which is developing an offshore wind farm south of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, has plans to funnel its 1200 megawatts of power into the energy grid via a brand new substation at Brayton Point. 
 
The originally contracted project was for one submarine cable of 800 megawatts to Brayton Point the site of the former coal-burning plant and another 400-megawatts cable to Falmouth Heights Beach in Falmouth Massachusetts.
 
Falmouth's residents on June 8 voiced overwhelming opposition to plans by offshore wind to run electric cables from its offshore wind farm through residential locations of  Falmouth at a public hearing held by the select board.
Audience members said that the onshore power plant the size of a shopping Mall would cause excessive noise and that people would not be unable to mortgage their homes because of the high voltage cable route. The buried cables create a high voltage easement through neighborhoods in which some agencies will not provide loans.
Overwhelmingly residents said the town overall objects to wind turbines, referring to Wind 1 and Wind 2, which are now slated to be dismantled. The two town-owned wind turbines are the worst sited turbines in the United States.
The Massachusetts courts shut down both wind turbines as a nuisance in 2017.
By the end of this May, the offshore wind company shifted away from Falmouth placing all the power at Brayton Point.
The president will not be visiting Falmouth, Massachusetts..................

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.
