The mammoth Number Nine wind complex envisioned for Maine may be presently on hold given a current lack of transmission lines. The project's website is here: https://numberninewindfarm.com/
This project was recently noted on this site as being part of "751 Megawatts of Proposed Wind for Maine"
There has been discussion among wind opponents in the past that the project's developer EDPR (EDP Renewables; part of Energias de Portugal) is part owned by China Three Gorges which is owned by the Communist Chinese government according to Wikipedia, e.g.,
The following screenshot would seem to provide additional support of there being Chinese ownership.
The China Global Investment Tracker (CGIT) is the only comprehensive public data set covering China’s global investment and construction, which are documented both separately and together. Inaugurated in 2005, the CGIT now includes over 3,300 large transactions across energy, transportation, real estate, and other industries, as well as 300 troubled transactions. The full list, with the amount, Chinese parent company, host country, and sector, is available for public use with the proper citation. The tracker is published by the American Enterprise Institute.

Wind Energy's Ghosts
In early 2009 the Socialist government of Spain reduced alternative energy subsidies by 30%. Calzada continues:
"At that point the whole pyramid collapsed. They are firing thousands of people. BP closed down the two largest solar production plants in Europe. They are firing between 25,000 and 40,000 people...."
"What do we do with all this industry that we have been creating with subsidies that now is collapsing? The bubble is too big. We cannot continue pumping enough money. ...The President of the Renewable Industry in Spain (wrote a column arguing that) ...the only way is finding other countries that will give taxpayers' money away to our industry to take it and continue maintaining these jobs."
