Energy future  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News | Sept. 22, 2013 | bangordailynews.com ~~

Candidate Eliot Cutler, in his campaign book, largely ignores the entire subject of Maine’s energy future except for a grossly false platitude about wind energy. After stating that “Maine’s onshore and offshore wind energy sources are endlessly renewable,” he adds that wind energy sources are “increasingly cost-competitive in life-cycle terms.”

Enormously expensive wind power cannot compete with cheap natural gas and hydro. Just about everyone knows that. That inability to compete is the reason our Legislature passed a law to all but ban cheap hydro power from Canada.
