Hearing to discuss power lines, roads  

CARRABASSETT VALLEY – The Planning Board will hold a public hearing today on Maine Mountain Power LLC’s proposal to construct power lines and roads to service its proposed wind farm.

Maine Mountain Power, a partnership between Endless Energy Corp. in Yarmouth and Edison Mission Energy of California, want to develop a $150 million wind energy power system by installing 30 wind turbines – 12 on Redington Pond Range Mountain and 18 on Black Nubble Mountain in Redington Township.

The proposed wind farm site is located about 4 miles west of Sugarloaf/USA in Carrabassett Valley.

The Planning Board’s hearing at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center deals with a conditional use permit needed from the town for some of the power transmission lines and associated roads proposed across the northwest sector of land owned by Plum Creek in Carrabassett Valley.

The format for the public hearing will be a brief presentation by the applicant regarding the proposal.

Immediately following the presentation, people will have an opportunity to comment on the proposal.

Once the hearing is completed, the Planning Board will determine what additional information it needs to make a decision at a future date.
