Expensive Playground Toys?

Hard to believe these, per the submitted plan, are sited 4 to 4.79 miles away, so that the children can not play with these new toys.

Projected view based on photo and submitted plan.  

Hope the local support is happy, as the slickers have moved on, some to retirement some to fatter promotions.

Not the point alice. The point is, how close these appear if they are in their proper location as submitted on their proposal of locations. Or whether or not they are sited either by a modified proposal that the public was not aware of, or just place willy nilly under an assumption that the entire site for the farm was fair game within the zone of permitting. One that may have been done without specific study as to specific location. These seem extremely large for that distance, but if so a  horrific view.  (schools that are public schools though sited in and funded mostly by communities come under the jurisdiction of and if incorporated an arm of the state)

a school is not of state or national significance

They appear to be on the ridgeline that parallels River Road, a location that was not indicated on the map of submission that I was able to acquire. If anyone knows of a different submission of a map, I would appreciate it so that I may update this model presentation. Gracias!

The lower photo is from google Earth where I located my models based on the map layout that was publicly provided, which I can only presume it to be the same as that which was presented for all application requests that were granted.

If they are closer, did they follow the permit issued, or constructed where they pleased after the permits were issued without update notification of request to relocate? Hmmmmmmmm !

I agree they seem much closer than four miles in the photograph.

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/
