"any more stats on WIND being top ten customers of CMP, Bangor Hydro?"

I have never seen the stats. Someone got them and stated that the wind farms used as much or more than EMMC and the mills. Can't remember which..but it is certainly important. I drive by Stetson and Rollins occ. The blades on the turbines turn at the same speed no matter how the wind is blowing. In the winter , you see 3 turbines with the blades turning and 3 off...so on down the line. Someone said that showed they are using power and not producing it. This has been going on since 2009! Sometimes I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone out here in the boonies. Lincoln...1.2 million short due to a little TIF problem...cutting back on services ..going up on taxes. The council person who thought something was fishy lost in the election, but with a recount she won. She wanted a forensic audit going back to 2008 in Lincoln...wonder what came of that? 2008 was when First Wind officially became a local force with the opening of Stetson I.

"fake energy plan"

Comment by Martha thacker on June 19, 2014 at 6:41pm

Alice

" When WIND is not blowing (75%) they still need to pretend to fulfill their contracts. " Another big secret is that the grid was full before the second wind farm was built in ME. The first one, Mars Hill , sent their power to Canada. I think all these facts could be categorized under the heading of Maine Energy , gang land style.

I read a year or so ago that CMP and Bangor Hydro agreed to pay 90 % (around that number) of the cost of the power lines for the wind farms.Sorry...no link.... I use eastern maine electric, can't tell that my bill has gone up. So , it does not seem fair that customers have to pay for their speculative investments. Especially considering the 19 % was added some time ago, and no transmission lines have been built.

I think these companies purchase strips of power from CMP to sell to Power purchasers.  When WIND is not blowing (75%) they still need to pretend to fulfill their contracts.  I heard this goes on from an engineer at Maine power.  No Names can be told.

Martha , any more stats on WIND being top ten customers of CMP, Bangor Hydro?

Alice, I picked up the bumper sticker at the last wind meeting at the Harraseeket.  I have some extra if you want one, let me know.  www.savingmaine.org probably has more, too.  They're great, they have a picture of a bald eagle on one side, wind turbine with red slash through it on the other.

Martha, you're right, if there were no money to be made on climate change, you wouldn't hear a thing about it.  This is a purely political agenda.

I hope "fake energy plan" goes viral. Because the propaganda of global warming / renewable energy seems to be a green light for all the well dressed crooks to come out of the woodwork. Not that there aren't changes, it is a vehicle nevertheless.

it is a fake energy plan....where are the bumper stickers?

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/
