About the proposed Expansion Projects

Through the communities of

Exeter & Corinna

MEPCO at Exeter 3 17 2016

MEPCO at Corinna 3 21 2016

Mentioned briefly in both videos is a statement about serving the needs of Wind Power in Aroostook County. Another CMP proposal would serve Wind exclusively though not mentioned here it would be similar to a V.T. and the N.H. Northern Pass project serving the needs of Southern NE and Canada.

When do you really think you will see Public News coverage about Proposed Land Acquisitions? Especially those that are threatening the possible use of Eminent Domain Takings. Such news is not newsworthy until the landowner is in dire straits and the taking becomes a court issue or it is to late in the process for the landowners. Sorry Penny Gray, this is a reason for community ordinances that Regulatory Law can NOT vacate by statute and would require a constitutional change declaring we have no rights under the 2nd amendment. This will only hit the News Media if MEPCO is awarded the project. Which is almost a certainty given the graft in hiding within this state and built upon today with the bad decisions of the past. What is transpiring in this state today is in or nearly in violation of Dillon's Rule. (U.S. Supreme Court Ruling)

I didn't see coverage of the meeting in the Bangor Daily News, just the article about transmission rates being raised in Maine ratepayers bills to cover the costs of "improving reliability" and getting the wind power to Massachusetts.

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/

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.
