Wind agreement 

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, bangordailynews.com 1 June 2012 ~~

Finally, I have something about Gov. LePage with which I can agree. The May 28 A1 article relating his stance on wind power is what many Maineiacs, including my wife and I, have been saying for a long time. Angus King, First Wind and the others are in it for the government subsidies, not to earn money selling electricity.

We bought hydropower from First Wind for about 10 years, and then without notice they switched us back to the Standard Offer. We called. No explanation, just admitted they had cancelled it.

Because First Wind took away our hydropower, we’re back to purchasing a typical mix of power. First Wind’s dropping us has made it impossible for us to buy clean electricity.
