“Cape Wind was wrong"..... "In the end, it was the regulatory arrogance of the Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and the Obama Administrations that did the most harm"

" Regulatory Arrogance "  Is there a chance of that in the halls of Augusta ?

Robert Goldman...nice post. I am wondering how all this will affect the Renewable Energy Credits. At one time Mass. was our biggest trader. 

But, First Wind did say a few years ago in their SEC report that lack of transmission was a good thing.

Very confusing. So much so the average person cannot easily understand. Don't think it is an accident. The RECs may be something to watch by those much smarter than me.

Those determined folks in Massachusetts who fought this awful monster project for so long deserve the highest praise. Sen. Ted Kennedy strongly opposed Cape Wind from the start. It is a pleasure to give the wind moonies of the Conservation Law Foundation and the confused Sierra Club and the other destructive, ideologically corrupted 'environmental' groups a huge middle finger. Mainers should stop bashing Massachusetts and realize there are tons of honest, good people in the state where the American Revolution began. I'm proud to be a Massachusetts native. Most of all, it is sweet to think of the millions of birds and all the innocent ocean beings that will be left to live in peace.

With Cape Wind now a defunct project, there is little doubt that hydroelectricity will be required as the renewable source of energy needed to make good on the carbon-free energy laws of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Wind converted energy simply will not keep up with the annually expanding renewable portfolio targets

Such wonderful news. Thank you for posting. May Maine soon go the way of Mass. and stop the madness. It is the banks. No more financing. WE are 18 trillion dollars in debt as a country. Time to let the criminals go back to their other forms of racketeering.

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/
