Connecticut’s energy plans will impact Maine  

Credit:  CT’s energy plans will impact Maine | The Bulletin | Aug 17, 2013 | www.norwichbulletin.com ~~

Changes to Connecticut’s Renewable Portfolio mandate law requires 4 percent of the electricity load be met with long-term power purchase agreements for Class I renewables – wind projects which would mostly be built in Maine.

Are you aware that these are not yet built or functional, that the wind companies – some foreign owned – solicited Connecticut to list these sources of power to bring political pressure on Maine to consider their applications to built?

Think about the impact it will have on the environment and the residents of Maine. I wonder if you’ll visit us if these massive turbines cover the sky lines. They want to take the tops off about 360 miles of our mountains and ridge lines to build these. Will hundreds of these be appealing to you as you look at our fall foliage?

The impact on our tourism, cold water sources, wildlife, threatened and endangered species, will be great. The well being and health of our residents is also of concern. The affects on humans include wind turbine noise and shadow flicker, which can be checked out by googling these subjects.
