    These additional jobs will really T off the LePage bashers.

      I don’t see LePage’s name in this article. What exactly did he do?

      I’m sure that if this happened while a Democrat or Independent was Governor, you would say that it happened in spite of them, not because of them. How do we know that isn’t the case here?

      LePage hates renewable energy – unless he gets it from his buddies in Quebec.

      Try again.

    We need tho think about this. The Greenville plant can not run without Government money, that’s why it never stays open. Also, do we really want to cut all our trees down, process them, then ship them overseas to Europe to burn in there electric plants???? The forest is already over cut, now we are going to cut more to send to Europe??

    more wasted tax dollars..without government funding the plant closes…

      RECs are not “government money” – and this plant generates tax revenue for Greenville.

      Try again.

      Taxpayers are currently paying $10 million a year to take care of spent fuel from Maine Yankee – that hasn’t generated electricity in decades.

      Where is the outrage from the right?

      Not a peep.

        just show me where you get your facts that the Maine taxpayers are footing the bill..I just read the entire Decommissioning agreement and the State does not pay a penny…get you facts straight…biomass is not cost efficient otherwise they’d be thousands of them in the USA…you ever burn green wood in a wood stove and see how cost efficient it is….

          I think it would be more accurate to say “ratepayers”, not “taxpayers”. It does cost money to store that waste and it ultimately comes from us.

    Everything sounded great until they mentioned Wall Street. Now, the project is doomed.

    Amazing how these things progress with hardly anyone noticing. And it always goes back to bankers and out of state corporations. Imagine that.

    hope it works out. Since the Greenville town manager does nothing to bring jobs to town, we’re lucky this facility may.
