Distrust Slows Ocean Wind Turbine Project Massachusetts -Maine Next ?

Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection State Agency Designed To Protect You Is Instead Financing Wind Turbine Projects

Maine Set To follow political agenda? 

MassDEP & Governor Charlie Baker Ignore Wind Turbine Noise Infra Sound -Health & Property Rights 

Massachusetts ignored noise and shadow flicker from land based wind turbines resulting in ten years of health and property takings in twenty one Massachusetts communities.
Now the same politicians are going forward placing submarine cables, massive Electric Service Platforms and ocean wind turbines that generate heat, electromagnetic fields and frequencies in the ocean and on top of that not allowing the fishing industry enough space to make a living.
A regulatory capture is a form of government failure which occurs when a regulatory agency, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, created to act in the public interest, instead advances the commercial or political concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.
In response to health concerns from residents living in proximity to wind turbines in twenty-one communities, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and Massachusetts Department of Public Health convened an independent expert science panel to conduct a literature review and to prepare a report on any documented or potential health impacts or risks that may be associated with exposure to wind turbines.
Our Governor at the time, Deval Patrick, ordered this report as a tool to promote his ambitious wind agenda in the face of direct evidence of harm from one of the first of Massachusetts' wind experiments which were proving troublesome – that being Falmouth, Massachusetts with a second wind turbine financed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
MassDEP financed the second Falmouth turbine called Falmouth Wind II with a contract called a PRA, Project Regulatory Agreement, that disregarded health and safety for lower payments on a loan for energy production.
In spite of Massachusetts' residents who were reporting various health impacts from wind turbines due to both the invasive and excessive noise levels along with strobing impacts that are clearly, due to their intensity level, nothing short of an environmental pollutant – the so-called "experts" were not allowed to perform any study of, or hold any discussions with, those who were experiencing degraded living conditions.
Yes, our very own typically protective Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection was co-opted at its highest levels by politicians with an agenda.
MassDEP allowed the wind turbine industry to take the health and property rights of twenty-one Massachusetts communities.

Baker and his RE underling/hacks tried to railroad Martha's Vineyard through past the local people, past the fishermen, past the other fauna and flora, without a proper Environmental Impact Study.

Now the feds will oversee the EIS, because Baker and his RE wind nuts cannot be trusted, especially after the major Falmouth FIASCO.

That much VARIABLE and INTERMITTENT wind power would have been a major disturbance to the NE grid.




The other gas turbines would have to provide major peaking, filling-in and balancing services, well in excess of what they are doing now FOR FREE?

Their owners would want to be paid for those services.

Will that be charged to wind turbine owners.

Oh no, because us guys are saving the world and cashing in big time while we are dolng it.


This will delay the offshore wind project south of Martha's Vineyard by at least a year until after the elections in 2020.

Other offshore will similarly be delayed.

Baker should have approved increased gas pipeline capacity.

That would have provided electricity at wholesale prices of about 5 c/kWh.

Oh no, he is so green.

He rather pays 9 -10 c/kWh.

Regarding Maine it has no money to offshore foolish projects.


EXPERIMENTAL floating turbines a la Maine? You have got to be kidding me.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(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.
