I was missing your analysis - SEC and seeing connections such as Harvard-Summers- new carbon tax economy etc. And cost of transmission. Apparently, I don't get alerts when you comment, and I missed your "still here" twice, but I am glad!!
I am looking for the picture of Oakfield Wind turbines casting shadow (just from the towers, not even flicker) across the entire pond. Do you remember it? ABC/Fox needs to see it. Rotor of 117 m is very large, but 140 m is in the current DOE "vision" from a year and a half ago. Yet our oft-reviewed evaluation of "evidence" for noise and health or even aesthetic and property value impacts is based on 30-40 m rotors on 30- maybe 50 m hubs. I have been surprised when I can find turbines on Google by their shadow (modest Hull II is 80 m rotor on 50 or 60 m hub). Google has rainbow glint out to about half mile.
Wind proponents believe that wind turbines have gotten quieter. This is incorrect. They just have had less mechanical noise, and they are quieter per kW. Longer blades can be made for the same amount of noise. None of that is "quieter".
This is as much as I have Mapped thus far. There is at least one Branch from the MEPCO line at the Chesuncook, Brewer, Lincoln Junction in Chester. The Wind farms Tie into that line, not the MEPCO line it appears. Though the two have a switchgear connection to each other. The Proposed Oakfield project will also travel with the Chesuncook ROW to the same location it appears if one route is chosen, or possibly tie into the MEPCO line or parallel it back to the Chester Station.
I voted MICHAUD, the first Dem since Kennedy. Though I must say I have since learned that the parties, are skewd and defective. Democracy is not being Democratic, nor is Republicanism its counterpart. A long story.......... but truth finally after 200+ years. A republic is a form of government adopted from the Cherokee Nation, then banished to Oklahoma territory once corporations found them wiser.
Not sure how to communicate through this medium. Sorry if I mess it up for you or others. I am only in hopes to remove personal conversation from the blog if you agree. References:email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Martha... I am not sure what the 1.4B investment consists of, nor am I sure how much FW is willing to promise to invest in communities in any or all aspects. What I am sure of, is this methodology to obtain sustainable energy aka Green energy is Flawed. The Google Earth Photos are what agencies and others provide. They are also provided based on what I have seen and know to be true. The Purpose, I do not know. Through Research, Archiving, recording, listening and becoming informed we may learn. Though never remain behind the curve....... suspect...... and investigate your suspicions and get ahead of the curve. Though we enjoy life in Maine and wish to relax, always be aware of the attacks.

"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."

(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.
