Maine Halts New Wind Projects (Ind. Report)
Wind
Date: 2018-02-02
Last week in Augusta, Maine's Republican Governor Paul LePage issued a temporary stoppage on all new wind energy projects in Western and Coastal Maine. The moratorium will have a negative impact on the 14 proposed project in Maine but will exempt the preexisting Mars Hill wind farm in northern Maine. LePage reportedly sees wind turbines as a threat to his state's tourism industry, due to their size and appearance.

According to the Portland Press, wind power accounted for only 0.4 pct of Maine's electric power production in the summer of 2007, and jumped to nearly 25 pct by summer 2017. In 2016, Maine wind turbines generated three-fifths of all utility-scale wind power in New England, according to US Energy Information Administration data.

Con Edison Proposes Maine Wind Energy Delivery to the Bay State Boston (Ind. Report)
Con Edison
Date: 2017-08-07
New York energy utility Con Edison reports it aims to partner with Maine Power Express LLC, (MPX) a group of energy developers, to construct wind farms in Penobscot and Arostock Counties, Maine. Power from the new wind farms would be transmitted to Boston through a bid process under consideration in Massachusetts.

Under the plan, MPX would build a 630-megawatt wind facility in Penobscot and Aroostook counties called County Line Wind. Then the partnership would deliver that power via an underground power line on an existing energy corridor that eventually connects to an underwater transmission line to Boston, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

If the MPX project wins the Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP, it would sign a 20-year power purchase agreement with Massachusetts utilities regulators, according to the release. Construction of the wind farms and the transmission corridor would be complete by 2022, according to the bid. Massachusetts is expected to make its selection in January 2018.
