By banning nuclear, Germany has banned the type of generation that can compete with and suppress the need of natural gas. If Russia decides to stop delivery on natural gas, the result of the global pressure for natural gas will create shortages and spike prices that will have dire effects on the states that depend on the ISO-NE grid.
ISO-NE needs NECEC as a competing element. They have always promised open access for all generators into the transmission system they manage which includes the transmission system in Maine.
ISO-NE is gutless, when courage is needed.
Maine should step away from this useless entity and form an electric cooperative with Canada, Vermont and New Hampshire. Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire already have direct connections or passthrough of electricity from Hydro-Quebec.
Our own government is destroying electric reliability at reasonable costs. We must move on this soon.
18% of eligible voters in Maine voted against the Hydro project from Canada. Hardly a representative vote, IMO.
