The timeline for the southern New England Clean Energy RFP's moved into a new phase last week - the selection of bidders began on 4/26/16 and is slated to wrap up in July. This is a process where Mass, Ct and RI want to buy feelgood wind power (because their bribed legislators mandate their ratepayers buy it) and guess where they expect most of it to come from? HINT: Not in their backyards.
In reading the HEAVILY REDACTED proposal from EDPR (EDP Renewables), one comes across the following lie - that Aroostook County offers one of the best wind resources in New England.
The fact of the matter is that the shoreline of Mass, Ct and Rhode Island offers far more wind than the low inland rolling ridges of Aroostook County. So while the document is virtually worthless given how redacted it is, from this one claim, we can see that they have kicked things off with big lies.
