The town will hold a public forum on the proposed wind project near Little Bay on Wednesday night at 7 at Town Hall.
Developer James Sweeney, representatives from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, representatives from the company financing the project and town officials are expected to attend the event. The session will include a presentation and a question and answer period.
CCI Energy proposes to erect two turbines on rented town land near Little Bay that would provide free electricity to the town. The company is seeking approval for the land lease at Town Meeting this spring.
The recently formed WindWise Fairhaven group has raised several questions about the project and has called on the town to erect its own turbines and explore other locations.
