Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post Why no opponents interviewed? - Bait & switch two miles off Monhegan
"A 10 to 12 MW wind turbine is at least 700 feet tall. It will be a monster, as seen from Mohegan Island. It will have red strobe lights flashing, 24/7/365, for decades It will emit a lot of low frequency noise, aka infrasound, which is harmful to…"

"Penny, The reason so little information is provided in such PR articles is to keep the taxpayers and ratepayers floating in a state of rosy comatose, feeling no pain, now and in the future, somewhat as with a fairy tale that eventually would lead to…"

Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post CT’s long road to replace nuclear power with wind and solar
"It is beyond irrational for Connecticut not to build at least 4000 MW of nuclear to serve future heat pumps and electric vehicles. I switched my energy-efficient house from 95%-efficient propane to 3 heat pumps, each with 2 heads, at a capital cost…"

Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post Facing referendum, CMP corridor backer offers to sell discounted power to Mainers
"The capacity of the new 1200 MW transmission line, NECEC, is about 9.45 million MWh per year. Massachusetts contracted to buy that quantity of STEADY electricity from HQ for about 4.5 to 5 c/kWh.   STEADY HQ electricity is about 98% hydro,…"

"Dan McKay, The 225 MW, HVDC line stops just inside the border of Vermont, at a DC to AC conversion station, then connected to the existing NE grid. Vermont utilities buy from HQ about 1.4 million MWh per year, at about 5.6 c/kWh, for 20 years. I…"

Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post Governor Mills Secures Discounted Electricity for Maine from Hydro-Québec
"The line capacity is 1200 MW It will deliver 700,000 MWh/y to Maine, and about 8,700,000 MWh/y to Massachusetts  Maine is getting less than 10% of the electricity, but 100% of the environmental/visual damage"

Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post Mass. becomes dirty word in Maine referendum fight
"The line should be buried, as they do in Germany, after 20 years of hassling about north-south HVDC transmissions lines. They greatly reduce environmental impacts compared to aboveground visible lines on up to 135-ft high towers"

Willem Post commented on Long Islander's blog post Norway to rein in wind power after raging opposition from locals

THE GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTIONS ACT A DECADES-LONG BURDEN ON VERMONT

The Vermont House passed the Global Warming “Solutions” Act bill, GWSA, and sent it to the Vermont Senate, which also passed it. The bill, if enacted, would convert the aspirational goals of the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan, CEP, into mandated goals, with penalties. GWSA has been called “must pass this Session”.

THE VAGARIES OF SOLAR IN NEW ENGLAND

In summer, highly subsidized, expensive, variable, intermittent solar dozes off in late afternoon/early evening, sleeps all night, and does not wake up until about mid-morning the next day, becomes very active around midday creating DUCK curves, especially on sunny days, then dozes off again in late afternoon/early evening.

 

In winter, solar dozes off in late afternoon, sleeps all night, and does not wake up until about mid-morning the…

It funny that they need 10 cents a kw to be solvent. Going back to Livermore windmills in 1983-5 wholesale coal by wire was like 1/4 cent per kw and wind power got .10 per kw as a subsidy. After all these years people are so stupid and gullible! .10 cents needed to burn trees. Funny the left out hydro and atomic power???
 
 
 

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/

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.
