Again, we see the media fail to link the building of transmission lines to wind projects.
New England utilities, including CMP, have been on a building spree to upgrade the high-voltage lines that move power from state to state. Some of the construction is meant to upgrade obsolete equipment. Other work is needed to meet new requirements for reliability and security, and to prevent blackouts. Together, they have added billions of dollars to electric bills in the region.
In December, federal energy regulators opened a case to investigate why transmission rates in New England are much higher than other parts of the country. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said the region’s rates are “unjust, unreasonable and unduly discriminatory or preferential,” despite the fact that the agency has approved the projects and rates of return over many years.

Look no further than PL 661, Baldacci's Expedited Wind Law of 2008. The requirement of adding boutique feckless wind to the grid mix also required expansive transmission build out, Maine is now paying for. The graft,long term contracts at high rates and political pocket lining of the power elite has to be paid for,by the little guy of course. The left wing progressive state's fixation on the false" science" of global warming now costs real money. Smart businesses will continue to leave until the renewable scam and expedited wind law is expunged. Blow hard indeed Maine until the fad is ended. Renewables time has past,and those that live by it will pay ,over and over each year,no matter how the cost is rationalized.
All the while, "vice chair"Mr. Baldacci laughs at his roost in New Gloucester at Avangrid.
Just follow his money flow and see why Mainer's have less" green" in their pockets from the wind scam he helped create as an "emergency" piece of legislation called The Expedited Wind Law of 2008
