FYI and to encourage and give hope to other communities confronted with a seemingly fruitless battle against wind farms, I offer you an overview of our fight and so far, victory and our new challenge.

Monhegan Island is a small island (1 mi × 3/4 mi) that is located 13 miles off of the coast of Maine, USA, and is a stop-off for many species of birds traveling the Eastern/Atlantic Migratory Flyway route north in the spring and south in the fall along the Eastern coast.
