New England governors urge ISO-NE to focus on affordablility

Connecticut Governor Dannell Malloy, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, and Vermont Governor Phil Scott today issued the following statement related to ISO New England and affordable electricity. ISO-NE is charged with maintaining electric supply and reliability in New England.

Antrim Wind Energy to break ground on 9-turbine project as soon as next week

Nearly a decade after Antrim residents first heard the first proposal to put wind turbines on Tuttle Hill and Willard Mountain, ground is being broken on the project next week. On July 26, Antrim Wind Energy submitted a notice of the start of construction of the Antrim Wind Project to the state’s Department of Environmental Services, stating that the company expects to move forward with construction on or about Aug. 6. The company plans to construct a 9-turbine, 29-megawatt project . . . Complete story »

Regulators say no to suspending Antrim Wind Energy certificate

CONCORD – State utility regulators turned down a request from Antrim Wind Energy project intervenors to suspend the construction certificate for the project. A three-member subcommittee of the Site Evaluation Committee voted 3-0 in June to reject the request and issues raised about financing and the possible sale of the wind project to a Canadian firm. Intervenors claimed they would impact the validity of the certificate and its conditions. The written ruling was released Thursday. Intervenors and the Counsel for the . . . Complete story »

Revised renewable energy goal to go before Concord city council

Supporters of a goal to have 100 percent renewable energy in Concord say an updated resolution will still achieve its desired impact, despite language changes that cut the resolution’s length in half. On Monday night, the Concord City Council will consider adopting a revised version of a resolution they last saw in May that would have directed the city administration to work toward the goal in conjunction with the Concord Energy and Environment Committee, and a stakeholder committee, along with . . .

Unreliable wind is a poor energy source, by Fred Ward

There have been stories and letters in The Sentinel extolling the merits of wind power and its contributions to our energy mix. It’s unfortunate that wind energy has ever risen in energy discussions, because it suffers a serious, fundamental and likely insoluble problem. This problem is sufficiently serious as to question whether wind energy should ever be considered to contribute meaningful electrical energy to New Hampshire. Legislatively forcing wind to contribute more than 1, 2 or 3 percent of our . . . Complete story »

Cold snap tested reliability of region’s power grid and arguments against fossil fuels

As Maine and New England shivered through last winter’s historic cold spell, the region’s electric system faced an unprecedented prospect: rolling blackouts. Several troubling circumstances were converging. Natural gas was scarce and pricey. A power line failure sidelined one of New England’s largest power plants. Solar panels were covered with snow and wind turbines were buffeted by storms. The combination forced grid operators to ramp up 1960s-era technology to keep the lights on. For the first time, they strategically juggled . . . Complete story »

State court OKs Antrim Wind project, opponents continue to push back

The state’s Supreme Court allowed a nine-turbine wind project in Antrim to move forward late last week. In an opinion that was published Friday, the state’s highest court upheld a 2016 decision made by the state’s Site Evaluation Committee’s decision to allow the project to move forward under certain conditions. Although the court’s decision is considered a victory for Antrim Wind, petitioners of the project are already fighting back. Fred Ward, who lives in Stoddard and is one of the . . . Complete story »

State’s highest court backs Antrim wind project

The state Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a much-debated wind farm in the town of Antrim. Plans for the project began nearly ten years ago, but have been tangled in regulatory and legal battles. Nearby residents argue the proposed turbines threaten the natural landscape and wildlife, as well as human health. Fred Ward, a local meteorologist and one of the project’s opponents, said he’s frustrated by the court’s decision and is planning to motion for a rehearing of . . . Complete story »

State’s high court shoots down appeal against Antrim Wind; project can go forward

CONCORD – New Hampshire’s highest court has allowed a planned wind-power project in Antrim to move forward, seven years after a version of the proposal first came before state regulators. In a ruling Friday, the N.H. Supreme Court upheld the N.H. Site Evaluation Committee’s December 2016 decision to approve the project, which would consist of nine wind turbines and supporting infrastructure on a ridgeline. The developer, Antrim Wind Energy LLC, has touted the 28.8-megawatt project as a way to generate enough . . . Complete story »
