Why Does The EUT Committee Continue to Destruct Their Credibility Kowtowing To The NRCM ?

The Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee, as usual, rolled over for their favorite lobbyists, NRCM, yesterday 2-27-18 , giving away the people's time to listen to a speaker giving a half-baked report commissioned by the NRCM about shutting down all privately owned biomass electric plants in the State.

The Report :
Economic Impact Assessment of Wood Chip Heat in Maine
Prepared for:
Natural Resources Council of Maine
Attn: Nick Bennett
3 Wade Street
Augusta, Maine 04330

How can the EUT Committee continue to discard their assignment to be the people's safeguard against unwarranted energy costs when they cater to the wants of the NRCM who advance centralized government control over the forgotten stakeholders.

Never will they change Pl-661 (Expedited Wind Law), until the legislature changes hands and they are forced to 

...Make it so!

Ideology of  $Green drives the left;

They are not scientists, they are ideologues and politicians ( bought ones at that).

The residents of Maine must raise hell to prevent severe electron costs from the wind scam.

If they do not, the state will be lost to the wind shysters!

When are they going to find the time for LD 1810, An Act To Amend the Laws Governing Expedited Permitting for Wind Energy Development?

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."

******** 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.
