On July 27th Massachusetts closed their bids for clean energy. Over Four Dozen bidders including Emera and CMP put in bids for Maine Wind.
Several months ago Massachusetts told us that they would NOT approve running a Natural Gas Main through their state for us here in Maine to allow gas for heating and industry here. I'll say it again. WE ARE NOT A TERRITORY OF MASSACHUSETTS!!!! Even if they were to approve a gas line, we should STILL tell them wind is NOT welcome in Maine for them or anyone else. We don't want more turbines, we don't want more transmission lines, we don't want more destroyed mountains, we don't want to sacrifice more wildlife and wilderness, we don't want higher prices for our electricity to allow them to reach for some ridiculous goal that will be impossible to reach. They don't want the wind turbines in their mountains but want us to take them. NO!
