I still can't figure out how something like this can happen,   I know i live in Andover.  But where i live i'm going to be looking at the whole thing.    Already can see the ones that are put together,   And stubs of the other ones being built.

         I'm not sure what i can do to help this group.    But i am concerned    i think they should  place these wind turbines around the capitol buildings  and the white house.     they would get so much wind from those places to run everyones power indefinatly,       Anyway,   i'm here  and  i'll do what i can to help out..  Thanks for having me  ,    Matt.       P.S.  the pic on my profile isn't me..    it's from an old 70s add  the crying Indian, if a few of you can't remember that one..    Again  Thanks for having me,

I have not seen them lit,       And Yes i saw the same plane .       And as far as i know they have to be lit 200 ft and over,     Years ago when i use to run crane  if i was up on a project such as that my jib  needed to be lit up also as i was above the 200 ft.

Matt and all , I live on Roxbury Pond and have full view of the 'aliens' Can you tell me if these are lit at night.? We are being told solar lights are on them including the crane, however I see nothing from the pond at night. We are also being told that the ridge is a no fly zone curently. Minutes ago a sea plane just flew over the project. FAA regulations state anything over 200 feet must me illuminated at night. How many rules do they Not have to follow? THEY ARE IN MY FRONT YARD and I have fought the project for 3 years.

Matt,

Hopefully your reaction is typical of the folks in and around Roxbury who are seeing for the first time what wind power does to our mountains and our senses.  I know many folks on Roxbury Pond who are devastated by what is happening. 

You can write letters to the editor, to your elected representatives, you can tell your friends and neighbors to join the Task Force and you can help convince other folks in the River Valley to say no to turbines in their towns.  Thanks for joining the website.  There is a lot of information here and the website links take you to even more.  Please check back often or put us on an RSS feed from "My Page" for automatic updates whenever a new item is posted.  Please spread the word.

Thanks,

Steve

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/

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
