    Another waste of money, time & energy.  GREEN just ain’t going to do it folks in the massive amounts needed for this nation.  Fossil fuels are, like it or not, what works.

    It wouldn’t be bad if that energy stayed in Hancock County and saved money here but it does not.  I hope the people in Mass. enjoy our natural resources.

    Wind Never Works!

    It is a farce, a huge scam of this decade on all us taxpayers.

    It cannot do one of the below requirements for electrical production.

    These cardinal rules are known thoroughout  the utility business.
    Dense energy sources are needed to power modernity.

    How does Wind  meet the criteria every electrical generating source must meet?

    Any electric utility must meet the following, well known in the industry to survive.

    1.The source must provide large amounts of electrons (it must be dense)
    2.The power must be reliable and predictable.
    3.The electrons must be dispatchable
    (high or low amount must be generated on demand)
    4.It must serve one or more grid demand elements(base load, load following and peak
    load).
    5.The utilization of environment must be minimal and compactness is a must, or it is non-green and damaging the environment.
    6.It must be economical

    .Bull Hill will fail on all counts.

    First Wind will be  dead subsidy scamming company after this election cycle.It will leave in its wake rusting hulks and environmental destruction for years to come.

    Thank You, Maine DEP and the Expedited Wind law, which should be declared the poorest piece of under the gavel legislation in Maine’s history!

    Angus King’s son works for First Wind.

    We must wonder if junior  was at the unloading pier as well, protecting his scammed federal subsidy money  delivered  from daddy’s scamming White House connections.

    Just think.  At this rate we wont be like the TV series Jericho.  That is assuming some one rembered to turn them on so we could get power from them.

    Energy for 18000 homes in Mass. if the wind is blowing… The wind resource was not even close to the recommended levels , Cadillac Mtn was barely over the mark. Why is nobody checking the fudged data from the met towers?
