Supporters try to keep turbine project alive  

Supporters of wind turbines in the Orleans watershed pleaded with selectmen last night to keep the project alive.

The Committee to Save Our Wind had secured the offer of help from Gov. Deval Patrick to work with the town and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, spokeswoman Liz Argo said.

Instead the selectmen voted unanimously to move ahead and establish a five-member committee that will review and apply the project’s four years of data to another alternative energy project.

Such a committee would expand its work beyond wind energy in the watershed. It could look at other types of alternative energy, other sites in Orleans, and the potential for a regional project to share costs and expenses. The selectmen asked for a draft charge, including a deadline, in the hopes of getting a new project going as soon as possible.

The watershed project stalled last month when water commissioners voted against it because of lingering concerns on costs and risks.
