    How many times will this project receive taxpayer subsidies?  ORPC has received ten million dollars from Dept. of Energy and several millions from Maine Technology Institute.  In Nova Scotia, the provincial government will pay nearly seventy cents per kilowatt-hours for tidal energy; however, even the developer thinks this amount is inadequate.  Try asking Maine PUC for details of the ORPC deal and you will be amazed on the lack of an accountability mechanism.  The objective should still focus on finding the most cost effective source of green energy while fully considering environmental and other technical factors.  The true resource of Cobscook Bay is the tidal range and not the resultant currents which vary substantially over a lunar cycle.  How long with ORPC’s units with stand the incredible tidal forces at the bottom of Cobscook Bay.

    Didn’t the PUC remember the mess the ratepayers had when they signed a long term contract with PERC? It finally ran out and our rates dropped. They are supposed to be there for the consumer not the corporations.
