Antrim Wind project fined for delay

The Antrim Wind project is slated for completion by the end of November, despite setbacks caused by a supplier’s bankruptcy and a recent malfunction of the temporary safety lights atop the turbines. Selectman John Robertson said on Tuesday that representatives for the project confirmed that the temporary lights weren’t working after a resident reported an outage at the Sept 9 Select Board meeting. The Federal Aviation Administration requires lights on any structure taller than 200 feet to have lights, in . . . Complete story »

Antrim Wind project underway, with turbines visible from Gregg Lake

This summer, Antrim Town Beach visitors had a prime view of the first three Antrim Wind turbines going up. The project, which has a total of nine turbines across Tuttle Hill and Willard Mountain, is on track to be completed and online by the end of August, Select Board Chairman John Robertson said. “Everything seems to be right on schedule,” Robertson said. The Select Board expects to schedule a meeting to get a more specific review of the construction schedule . . . Complete story »

ISO-NE will require wind, intermittent hydro to bid into day-ahead energy markets

Dive Brief: ISO New England now requires wind- and intermittent hydro resources with a capacity supply obligation to offer into the grid operator’s day-ahead energy market, the grid operator announced Tuesday. The grid operator called it “another milestone” in its efforts to incorporate renewables into the regional marketplace. The requirement, effective June 1, comes three years after the ISO launched the Do Not Exceed (DNE) dispatch project, enabling those resources to take electronic dispatch instructions from the grid operator. Requiring DNE resources to participate . . . Complete story »

Intentionally causing traffic during rush hour is unacceptable

Last month, a ship arrived in Portsmouth that contained giant components for a new wind farm being built in Antrim. The pieces of the wind farm were removed from the ship and trucked one by one from Portsmouth to Antrim. These components aren’t an ordinary load you’d see being hauled by a truck. They were gigantic tubes, and I couldn’t even begin to guess their actual size. They were so large, they required a special set of wheels to be . . . Complete story »

Renewables aren’t reliable enough to generate that much power

Global warming and 100 percent renewable energy have been inextricably linked by the media, with the latter proposed as a solution for the former. Here’s why 100 percent green cannot be a solution for Keene. First, even if nuclear energy is considered green, and a second reactor is installed at Seabrook, Keene could only achieve about 50 percent renewable energy. Without “green” nuclear, Keene would be hard pressed to achieve 10 to 20 percent green energy, and that only with . . . Complete story »

Questions about city’s renewable energy plan, by Fred Ward

To Dr. Ann Shedd, chair of the Keene Energy and Climate Committee, and the Keene City Council: Thank you for the time to present my thoughts as a professional meteorologist on your project to develop a strategic plan for Keene to go to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. It hardly seems necessary to point out that all renewable energy is renewed by the weather; the sun, the wind and the rain. I have two questions, which you will have . . . Complete story »

Grid exec sees risks in gas, renewables reliance

New England’s growing reliance on natural gas and renewable power comes with a risk that demand for energy in the region could outpace available supplies. So says Gordon van Welie, CEO of ISO-New England, the organization that operates the regional electricity grid, in a “State of the Grid” conference call. While van Welie insisted that the energy infrastructure is a “strong foundation,” he did say it is vulnerable, since natural gas – the cornerstone of the region’s energy supply – is susceptible . . .

Offshore wind project hits rough water in New England

America’s first major offshore wind project is caught in a crosswind. The Federal Regulatory Energy Commission declined this week to rule on a waiver that would have eased the wind developer’s entry into New England’s electricity market. The decision, or lack thereof, prompted an unusual round of public sniping among FERC commissioners on Twitter and highlights the simmering tensions in New England, where state climate ambitions are straining against the structure of the region’s wholesale electricity markets. Some environmentalists and . . . Complete story »

Stories of 2018: Antrim Wind project begins

After nearly a decade, a 9-turbine wind farm passed through its final appeals, and began construction in Antrim. The project consists of nine wind turbines on Tuttle Hill and the Willard Mountain ridgeline in Antrim. The wind farm was first conceived almost a decade ago by Antrim Wind, a subsidiary of Walden Green Energy, and has been a contentious project in town for most of that time, with residents vocal in both support and dissent. The SEC approved the project . . . Complete story »

CMP warned of ‘working off the same playbook’ that stymied New Hampshire energy project

With great promise, developers announce plans to string high-voltage power lines from Quebec to Massachusetts and bring a new source of lower-cost, clean electricity to New England. They offer millions of dollars to communities and stakeholders along the route to help gain support. But well-organized opposition surfaces and progress stalls. And when a growing revolt against overhead power lines threatens the project, developers belatedly agree to put a portion underground, despite the expense. This chain of events might sound familiar . . . Complete story »
