Hey Maine Revenue Services, Tax Them More! Don't Tax You, Don't Tax Me, Tax That Wind Turbine Uprooting That Tree! !

Wind Company Interlopers, with the blessings  of the dumbed down "Green Dream" left wing progressive legislature run by the democrat graft machine (with cooperation of republicans who often will not take an aggressive oppositional stance in the state), have royally screwed the average Mainer, regularly and routinely with these projects.

Where else can you produce nothing of significant worth, never be economically viable and profitable, destructive to the environment,  and then get TAX Preferential Treatment to do so, scamming the taxpayer every year for decades?

MAINE! 

TIF(Tax Incremental Funding, or Preferential Non-Full Value Taxation from the local hosting community ) is a reason why the Maine taxpayer  continually gets "Turbine  Screwed" ,because by design ,  the value of the projects are never fully reflected in the local communities tax base, nor are the jobs they claim to generate. The  payouts to the communities by the wind scammers  are a piddling percentage of the true assessed value of the industrial project which should  be taxed regularly like any other business .The jobs? Only short term , a few local control stations on the hill operated remotely  out of state in many cases.There are never appropriate impact cost assessments as well to the communities. They buy them a fire truck or two in case of a mountain fire, (which cannot be controlled anyway). Maine communities are  a "cheap date", and a numb one at that.The Interlopers   use them in every way possible .

Why are  Mainer's Numb , Greenwashed  (or both) to  not understand this I ask?

Rest assured , those wind companies sure understand it, and so does the American Wind Energy Association as it attempts to put in more of them there. They indeed love Maine.

This is what keeps these scammers in business, and what also keeps Mainers poor. These Industrial projects are never economically viable. They are Tax Havens for  rich unctuous hedge fund investors and unctuous self-serving  connivers  like Senator Angus King, and detriments to the average Joe and Jill Mainer who ultimately  pays for them by not taxing them appropriately as well.

Tax these things at full assessed value, no long term depreciation allowances  other than that allowed by US tax law ! They already get unneeded  excessive  subsidies. TIFs are being abused . This was never the original intent of TIF as devised by Maine's revenue service.

TIF  was for job creation in  the communities, not environmental and economic destruction of them. Few jobs are created long term for these abominations in the communities. They  are net  local parasitic green back sucking detriments to the communities as well as  Graft Generators for  some local officials  and a few  unneeded local projects they do create. They cannot be used to lower local taxes directly,  by law.

This is improper utilization of the TIF that should be removed by the legislature.

Have these monstrosities taxed at full value. The legislature should, right now ,  STOP all TIFs for these Destructive Projects.

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

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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/
