Once upon a time...the Moscow /Bingham corridor...


Bingham & Moscow

Bingham is home to the halfway point between the North Pole and the Equator and recently celebrated its 200th birthday Bicentennial. Anglers delight in fishing a stretch of the Kennebec River here for the coveted and challenging salmon and trout.

The Bingham area boasts of Houston Brooks Falls, with a swell swimming hole and brook that empties into Wyman Lake, home to Wyman Lake Dam. The Bingham Free Meeting House and Rail Trail are worth a stop on any travelers way through this history filled and welcoming village along the Old Canada Road.

For additional information visit  Bingham and Moscow

The Town of Moscow’s western boundaries are beautiful Wyman Lake and the famed Kennebec River. The scenic Old Canada Road and Arnold’s Trail winds through and northward through Moscow on its way to Quebec. Baker Mountain in Moscow had the first tow-operated ski slope in Maine and is unique in its easy accessibility, being located directly along the byway. With its 2000 foot slope and three trails, it offers excellent training for young skiers. Ice Fishing is a popular winter sport on Wyman Lake, while an excellent public Boat landing makes available to all, the summer opportunities of fishing, swimming and boating. The “Salmon Pool” at the base of Wyman Dam has produced many outstanding trophy fish.

About the Western Maine Renewable Energy Project

Western Maine Renewable Energy will be located in Moscow, Somerset County, Maine, on a former United States Air Force Radar installation site that was decommissioned in the 1990s.  The site is unique in that it is not located on a prominent ridge line.  Development partners are Cianbro Development Corporation and Patriot Renewables, LLC.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(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/
