" The Alliance for Responsible Siting of Alternative Energy Installations". Please check it out !!!

 A new organization has been started in MA by Tom Thompson who lives in Scituate , MA where the turbine installed in his town has created a nightmare of noise and shadow flicker for the adjacent residents . Tom has been advocating for appropriate siting for some times while the efforts to demand that the State conducts noise testing have been largely ignored.

I believe that joining Tom in his effort is part of the coalition building we need to develop, as New Englanders , to protect the health of residents living close to turbines and improve the current siting regulations .

Please Check the Alliance's mission statement and the link following the text.

"The Alliance for Responsible Siting of Alternative Energy Installations* (the “Alliance”) was created to protect the health and safety, as well as the private property rights, of Americans who have been negatively affected by alternative energy installations sited too close to their neighborhoods and shorelines. The Alliance is also very concerned with how ethics, transparency and accountability at all levels of government impacts the American people.

The Alliance is a pro-alternative energy organization that supports all forms of alternative energy. The Alliance is committed to helping build consensus amongst stakeholders for the development and implementation of national siting criteria for alternative energy installations and legislation in protection of the health, safety and property rights of the American people.

I think the thing to keep harping at is that when it comes to land use (recreational/scenic as well as residential/property rights) you are not against WIND ENERGY because it is wind energy, you are just against 500 foot tall man made structures dominating skylines and skies, and against low frequency and audible industrial noise intrusions.  That Baxter views from the mountains there is corrupted by these machines is a travesty all its own.  What if a coal burning power plant were proposed within the vista view of Katahdin's peak?

Sounds like a great new partner!!

how about having that dialogue with them ?

Sounds like the perfect platform to make sure the renewable energy they support gets built on Maine's mountains and sparsely populated rural areas and not near "neighborhoods and shorelines."   Where is the responsible siting for a six hundred foot tall industrial wind turbine?

I expect the opportunities for coalescing will increase as the multiple downsides of the Wind mania grow and become more evident.

I agree with you Tom, but this is a multi prongs battle and every venue IMO that allows to expose one deleterious aspect of wind turbine, in this case noise and shadow flicker, has its place in the education process of the media, the public officials and the public in general.

Certainly responsible siting is a must.  It is important that nobody be confused into thinking wind energy is economic or even an economically favorable means of emissions mitigation if sited responsibly.

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/
