Too bad the Public Service Board approved UPC Wind’s application to construct 16 420-foot-tall wind turbines in Sheffield, where people all over the Northeast Kingdom will have to see these monsters. (Remember, they’re bigger than the Bennington Battlefield Monument.)
The economics are lousy. The threat to our tourism industry is real and substantial.
It strikes me that the folks who would put such things on our ridge tops would probably also spray foam insulation on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel to increase its R value.
