Remember folks,the modus operandi and "business plan" of wind companies has not changed in Maine since the inception of PL-661 in 2008 (Expedited Wind Law).
The law was designed by big wind and numerous self-serving unctuous politicians (think Angus King) and deceptive "enviro"lawyers to destroy Mainers' constitutional and property rights and to enable their scheme. Other ignorant or ill-informed politicians at the time "assumed" the benefits of Industrial Wind (there has never been a cost/benefit analysis done of grid scale wind in Maine by the DEP or other agencies). Why?
Industrial wind in Maine grows projects by repeating its successful business game plan time after time because subsidy scamming wind companies have used copious tax payer subsidy money to destroy naive taxpayer's rights and property .
They use base tactics in addition to their financial and political clout to defeat all citizen efforts to defend themselves.
Consider the words collusion, corruption, bribery and self-serving interests of the few over the rights of the many.
Wind scammers' well paid point-men and women infiltrate communities years prior to their first "public meeting" (another procedural scam as they refuse to take group questions ).Met towers "pop up" in certain places (meteorological data towers). Secret meetings occur with large land owners . Goodies of all kinds are passed to naive and often willing takers of "favors" . Snow mobile clubs and ATV clubs get promises of more and better trails,as well as direct contributions. Hot dog and hamburger parties occur.
"Corporate Environmental" groups like NRCM ,Audubon and Sierra Club get large "donations" to support the project.
Dreams of shiny new fire engines and police cars are dangled in front of financially strapped poor rural towns . Selectmen are enticed by "favors" to prevent citizen initiated local protective anti-wind ordinances and moratoriums in the affected towns that can modify, delay or defeat a project . Officials are told the "presumed benefits" of the industrial complex, but none of the serious downsides to it.
No meetings are recorded officially by town officials in the early stages.
Executive sessions are used to arrange wind company tax preferential treatment, secretly .
Naive town officials are told all information is "proprietary" by the industrial wind company. Money can be passed under the table ,but never disclosed or recorded.
More individual meetings with land owners are arranged.
Large land owners leases are arranged and kept secret from the public.
No emails are sent (no Hillary email tactics are used,they are smarter than that)..
When lease time comes for the project , squelch clauses are in place that threaten the lessee to never divulge anything about the soon to be announced project, nor oppose it .
They know the game,do you?
Private Investigators do wonderful things indeed.
The Exposure of the Truth of Industrial Wind Methodologies is a must!
The Exposure of the truth is their Achilles heel......
