The Third World of Maine is HERE!

  • The costs attributed to the transition from reliable, fossil-fueled electricity to the green new deal are trending up at accelerating rates.
  • RGGI costs are rising because the cap on allowable carbon dioxide emissions from power plants are scaled lower, annually. Most of the larger C02 producing plants have been driven out of service, leaving natural gas-fired plants as the majority source of C02. At this time and for the sake of future reliability, NG plants will remain a necessity and as occurs now, NG plants will set the wholesale electric prices. Pipeline constraints, dictated by activists against fossil fuels using lawsuits to effectively prevent expansions needed to maintain adequate pipeline gas supplies will cause wholesale prices to soar. The obvious fact is that any attempt to replace natural gas with wind, solar and batteries will make the price of electricity unaffordable well before the activists realize the damage they have done. 
  • The simple truth is that wind, solar and batteries will be happy to have wholesale prices take off into the stratosphere and continue to be set by natural gas plants because all generators receive the same set price. When it is fossil fuels against the goofy, green stuff, the green stuff loves to point out how fossil fuels are the culprit in higher energy prices. For that reason, you will never see the goofy, green stuff offer to set the price because they are more than gleeful to receive the scaled-up prices, all-the-while being the cause for them.
  • It is almost certain that blackout risks are getting closer by the day. The margin of dependable generation during critical times of need is shrinking, but the real planned deal with the green new deal is that electricity will first become unaffordable to many. As the self-imposed rationing and customer detachment from the grid proceeds, the blackout risk subsides, although it remains inevitable. 
  • Long term contracts and net energy billing provides the goofy green generators with production income exclusive of the wholesale market. This is another reason goofy green generators are happy to never have to set wholesale prices. They are very well protected to continue the plan to reap maximum payments right up to the collapse of the grid. How soon will it be before vandals start making off with installed solar panels for a trickle of electricity?
  • It is estimated that a customer using an average 550 kilowatt-hours a month pays around $44 per bill for the goofy green deal and in just a matter of two to three years that addition to bills will double and will continue doubling, only it will take half the time. And think about it, offshore wind and transmission buildouts haven't even begun yet.

In Puerto Rico, where people are impoverished, the wind/solar merchants of evil, $convinced the local Mafia to have wind turbines and solar panels, so they could show themselves to the gullible people as “progressive”, be “energy independent”

Then, the first hurricane arrived and wiped out all the wind turbines and solar panels, in addition to the usual damage.

However, the loans incurred to pay for all of it were still held by European banks, who demanded payment.

The people of Puerto Rico were super-screwed up and down and sideways,
Many came to the US to be bailed out by government programs run by idiot-led Democrats, who are in favor of expensive, highly subsidized dysfunctional wind and solar, paid for by printing $billions of dollars

Trump needs to win by a landslide to wipe out all the bull manure of the Obama/Biden years

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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
