Gigantic Mass RFP Coming - first projects to be selected in about two weeks (Jan 25, 2018)

The bids are broken up into two sections, 83D and 83C, the latter covering offshore wind. In many cases, the information on the bids themselves is so heavily redacted, that in terms of supplying information to the public, it is a worthless charade. In other words, in some cases, gargantuan projects which a company has been working on for perhaps five years, are still cloaked in deep secrecy. This is so by the time a project is actually announced and an application in Maine is filed, the public has very little time to react. There is no good reason for this, other than for the bidder to have a gigantic advantage over the public, i.e., those who ultimately pay for the project as U.S. taxpayers and ratepayers.

83D Bids

Public versions of the bids received in response to the Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP can be viewed in the Bids section of this website. Please note that the posting of public versions of bids received is subject to change, pending verification of full compliance with all submission requirements, as provided in the RFP. The site will be updated as necessary.

Shaftsbury Wind says it all

On September 27, 2017, Central Maine Power Company (CMP) submitted permit applications with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MDEP) for construction of the New England Clean Energy Connect (NECEC), an electric transmission line from the border with Quebec in Beattie Township to a new converter station in Lewiston. The project also includes several upgrades to CMP’s existing electrical transmission network between Lewiston and Pownal, Windsor and Wiscasset and in Cumberland. Approximately 73% of the 147-mile transmission line will be built within CMP’s existing transmission corridor. The remainder of the line will be built in an undeveloped corridor owned by CMP through working forestland in western Somerset and Franklin counties. The NECEC project will be capable of delivering up to 1,200 megawatts of renewable energy to the New England power grid. CMP submitted the NECEC project in response to a Request for Proposals issued by Massachusetts as part of its initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Information will be added to this page as materials relating to this project become available.
The application was accepted as complete for processing by MDEP on October 13, 2017.

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 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?" 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.”

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
