Weaver Wind, Hancock County

Application for Site Location of Development and Natural Resource Protection Act Permit for Grid-Scale Wind Energy Development

Weaver Wind, LLC proposes a 22-turbine, 72.6 MW wind energy facility in the Towns of Eastbrook and Osborn. The applications were accepted as complete on November 13, 2018. Weaver Wind had previously submitted application for a 23-turbine, 75.9 MW facility; that application was withdrawn on August 28, 2015 at Weaver Wind's request.

Fengate, Longroad Developing Weaver Wind In Maine (First Wind reconstituted)

Late stage development?

Under the terms of the agreement, Fengate and LEP will co-fund the development and construction of Weaver, which is now before the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The 22-turbine project is in late stage-development and is expected to achieve a notice to proceed in mid-2019, according to the developers. The anticipated commercial operations date is late 2020.

“As we looked to the market for financing partners, their experience and team were impressive and ready to take on all the challenges that developing wind in Maine can bring,” said Charles Spiliotis, of Longroad Energy Partners.

This transaction represents Fengate’s fourth clean energy co-development partnership investment in North America –the third this year and the second in the U.S.

A similar facility of 23 turbines and 75.9 MW had been proposed by First Wind and then by SunEdison, which withdrew the application in 2015, according to Maine Public. It also reported that the current developer, whose top management team is made up of former First Wind executives, bought the project development rights out of SunEdison's 2016 bankruptcy.

Maine regulators accepted the latest application as complete on Nov. 13, according to the DEP's website, which also includes information on how to submit comments.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

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.
