The lack of transmission lines keeps wind and hydro projects at bay.
"Many residents and politicians support a transition away from power plants fired by fossil fuels."
CORRECTION: The corrupt legislatures of MA, CT and RI support wind power because their leadership is owned by the wind industry. The average person in these states has not a clue how they are being swindled and even less knowledge as to how much pain this is causing in ME, NH and VT
As stated by the CEO of Massachusetts' NStar:
"Some programs have not been as popular as expected, May added. NStar Green, the program under which consumers can pay a premium to ensure some of their electricity is generated by wind, has attracted only 8,000 NStar customers - less than 1 percent of the company’s 1.1 million electricity consumers, he said. “We were a little disappointed that it was not greater,’’ May said. “Being the greenest state in the land of the free, we have a more educated audience, we have a more concerned, socially conscious audience. So we thought we would do better.’’
Translation: It's not so much the residents of southern New England who "demand" wind power, it's the dishonest thieving politicians.
