From the archives -- wasn't First Wind (now Sun Edison) CEO Paul Gaynor some sort of green energy adviser to then Mass Governor Deval Patrick?
Who are these people destroying Maine?
Time is running out for Gov. Deval Patrick’s clean energy bill, and he is starting to sound a little worried about its prospects.
I caught up with him today as he toured First Wind’s offices in Boston’s Leather District with Paul Gaynor, the wind farm developer’s CEO. Gaynor is a big fan of this bill that would require the state’s major electric utilities — namely Northeast Utilities and National Grid — to solicit long-term power-buying agreements from clean-energy companies over the next several years.
Gaynor told Patrick that the clean-power purchases would provide a boost for the company, in part by offering First Wind a broader market in which to sell power from its wind turbines in Maine.
