Why Does Attorney General Janet Mills Refuse to Investigate the Wind Companies?

November 14, 2010

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills Refuses to Make Wind Companies Sign a Code of Conduct as Was Required by the NY State Attorney General

Let's not forget what NY State Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo thinks of First Wind. As Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo launched an investigation of First Wind that is ongoing. Among Cuomo's concerns - "whether improper benefits were given to public officials to influence their actions". (BRIBERY)

The NY Attorney General also made First Wind sign a code of conduct.

Unfortunately, Maine's Attorney General, Janet Mills refused to investigate complaints from Maine citizens or make then sign a code of conduct. I guess Ms. Mills feels that that those lines of demarcation that Rand-McNally places on its maps to indicate state boundaries are all that's needed to keep First Wind from transporting any of its NY behaviors into Maine.

And let's not forget that former U.S. Congressman Erica Massa (D-NY) called them a company with a business model of LIE, CHEAT and CORRUPT. See attached pdf of Represntative Massa's letter to the President. Just click on the following green link.

It can also be pointed out that Attorney General Mills found it perfectly acceptable that a PUC Commissioner who greased the skids for CMP's $1.5 billion upgrade took stock options worth over $ 1 million from First Wind while still working at the PUC, prior to joining First Wind as their director of... DRUMROLL... TRANSMISSION.

You've hit the nail on the head, as to why Ms. Mills should not remain as our Attorney General. Let's hope governor-elect LePage has some candidates for the job who have no conflicts of interest when it comes to the wind industry. It's time that corporations were told that they do NOT rule the state of Maine. The PEOPLE do...

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/
