Between the Billion Dollars Plus we have already spent on useless unnecessary wind projects…and the Billion Dollars Plus we are spending on their accompanying transmission infrastructure, has anyone asked how sucking 2 Billion Dollars Plus out of our economy is a good idea?

This entire premise is skewed in so many ways.

"Southern New England, in particular Mass. and Conn. needs more generation to meet their clean energy mandates...supply is in the northern mountains of ME, or hydroelectricity from vast reservoirs in Quebec."

 

Iso New England does not have a uniform policy of what exactly constitutes renewable energy. NH accepts hydro as a renewable. ME does not, so we have a proliferation of wind farms. Although we have an abundance of hydro, our esteemed leaders think it best to import from Quebec. Are they saving Maine for something? Nope..or we would be the state chosen for wind farms. We in New England are being asked to do something that does not make common sense...I am sure a fair court would strike this new scheme as illegal. First Wind has already lost their first court case. Our rates would have to increase again...and have they even started  on the super duper transmission lines to transport all the northern ME wind farm energy? FERC and Iso New England need to check themselves. ...their greed is increasingly transparent. 

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/

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.
