Wind Turbine Crisis Ramps Up Savoy Massachusetts -Maine Next ?

Savoy, Massachusetts USA Wind Turbine By-Law Change

December 4, 2017

The Savoy selectmen received a petition to modify the Zoning Bylaws to prohibit wind turbines. Last Friday they met in their role as Select Board Planning Board to sign off on the paperwork to schedule two special town meetings:

Wednesday, December 20 - Hearing to discuss the proposed change

Thursday, December 21 – Vote on the proposed change. A 2/3 majority is needed

Both meetings are planned for 6:30 PM at the Fire Station. We are waiting to see the postings for confirmation.

This would not prevent recent wind projects from going forward. They have a special permit that expires next May, but people are hopeful that they will go away. Since they were denied approval for bigger turbines in September, the PILOT negotiations between the developers and the town have broken down, and they have not even contacted the Selectmen since then.

The Massachusetts Department Of Environmental Protection will not help you as that have brokered Project Regulatory Agreements ("PRA") a power production agreements. These agreements conflict with MassDEP noise regulations.

The state of Massachusetts has a wind turbine agenda that requires taking a minority of citizens property and health for the majority.

An agenda that has been made many times in past history.

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center formerly the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative in 2005 warned of two distinct types of noise from wind turbines:

A. ”Regulatory compliance”: Massachusetts state regulations do not allow a rise of 10 dB or greater above background levels at a property boundary (Massachusetts Air Pollution Control Regulations, Regulation 310 CMR 7.10).

B.”Human annoyance”: Aside from Massachusetts regulations, residences must also be taken into consideration.Today is known as infra-sound or low-frequency noise.

Commercial wind turbines are a bunco scheme of enormous consequence. The people who value intellectual honesty should not quietly be fleeced by such mendacity, even from their government and news media.
If they can't put the turbines in Massachusetts will Massachusetts state agencies turn to Maine?

Massachusetts has twenty-one communities that have poorly placed wind turbines in residential neighborhoods -Massachusetts had an agenda to place 2000 megawatts of commercial wind turbine power or around 1500 commercial wind turbines across the state. 

Commercial wind turbine installations in Massachusetts have ground to a halt across the state with about 115 megawatts of commercial wind power. Lawsuits by many communities over health and property rights have stopped the process 

"Project Regulatory Agreements "  Brokered by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection are power production loans that ignore the MassDEP noise guidelines. In other words, the state agencies that are meant to protect the public are financing wind turbine power production agreements that ignore health and safety 

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center is responsible for this health fiasco also. The MassCEC has already started "helping " the State of Maine to increase wind turbine production in Maine.

The official Geographic Center is Dunbarton, New Hampshire, however, I doubt any meeting would convene there. A Protest could if they would welcome the attention. (South of Concord)

How about a multi-state protest? What would be the geographic center for such an event?

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 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?" 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.”

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.
