Instead of using wind power, GMP was required to use more carbon-heavy and expensive fuels because ISO officials say the infrastructure used to transmit power from Lowell is insufficient.- See more at: http://vtdigger.org/2013/07/28/lowell-power-c...

Can anyone HONESTLY say they didn't know this was coming?

Shumlin deserves an Emmy for this performance!

What conclusions are we to draw from this performance of our regulatory system? What does it mean that the PSB, the DPS, and perhaps the V-cheerleaders (VPIRG, VNRC, CLF, etc) knew the transmission system was deficient? Is the condenser a real fix? Once it is installed, are there other “surprises” in store?- See more at: http://vtdigger.org/2013/07/28/lowell-power-c...

-No surprises so far Randy, everything is going pretty much as predicted.....

Dana: Curtailment has emerged as an issue because it points to the fraudulent nature of our collective attempt to rein in global carbon buildup. Vermont is an especially egregious example of such an attempt.

THe carbon rich generation you mention is abetted by the double dealing of Vermont’s policies, which give utilities in this state a chance to double dip into the morass of competing carbon reduction policies of other states. Those policies are written by the industy players, not by concerned environmentalists.

Thanks to VtDigger, a consensus is emerging from the so called “curtailment hawks”, and this might be summed up as follows:

When the foxes write the rules on how to fix up the hen house, the hens will have to roost in the rafters.

They throttled natural gas supplies to New England. It is a bottleneck to unfairly rise prices of electricity.

The federal and state oversight of the natural gas distribution pipeline is immature and corrupt!

We seen that with the historic electric price spikes last winter...we almost lost the NE grid last winter.

Ah....Wow. Disappointed eh? Hmmph. Well....too bad Governor Shumlin. You should have listened to what people have told you all along. Wind energy is too variable and intermittent to be depended on. ISO NE knows that. But you're going to lean on them to keep these useless facilities online because you don't want to be proven wrong. Go ahead.....put in a gazillion dollars worth of transmission upgrades and you will see again...if you're willing to look, ISO NE will not depend on wind power. They may let your buddies stay online, and we will pay for that power, but ISO will keep the baseload power producers spinning. We'll get to pay for both. Your wind power will be the unneeded extra power that makes guys like you feel good about yourselves. Not because wind works, but because it makes you rich. Wind power is not in the "public good." Period.

Little Vermont trying to "lead" the nation with expensive renewables just got owned by the grid they belong to. The public service board, the legislature and our leadership's vision is not based in reality. Their fantasy with renewables, nuclear even burying the northwest reliability loop are fiscally irresponsible.

"Wind power is not in the "public good." Period."
-the only good thing about the potential of another GE Mark I reactor meltdown in Vernon is that the prevailing winds blow toward the west/southwest, the oppostite of where I live, so I might have time to GTFU B4 getting a big dose of rads
But as with Fukushima and Pripyat by Chernobyl, the area still won't likely be inhabitable until loong after we're all dead anyhow

Unlike with the Chernobyl disaster in Russia, entombing the reactors in concrete is not feasible in this case on account of the location being right on the coast; and there it is folks, the genie is out of the bottle and cannot EVER be put back in.We lack the technology to fix this growing planetary disaster.
We don’t know how to stop it ~ and so they just let it continue to spew deadly radioactive isotopes into the air, as they continue to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste water directly into the pacific ocean in flagrant violation of international law, and environmental treaties. And the world media is nearly silent.Wouldn’t you think that this story would be top of every news cycle until it was fixed? Not on this prison planet.
The subject is on the taboo list right along with the ongoing oil leaking in the gulf, and chemtrails in our skies.
