Windmill is possible in Blue Hills  

MILTON – A state agency found no obvious reasons to block the possibility of putting a windmill on top of Great Blue Hill or Chickatawbut Hill, the two tallest peaks in the Blue Hills Reservation.

The study done by the Renewable Energy Research Laboratory of the University of Massachusetts, at the request of the state Executive Office for Energy and Environmental Affairs, looked at issues that might derail the project, such as whether there is enough wind at the sites or possible environmental problems, said Sally Wright, a staff engineer who authored the report.

State Senator Brian A. Joyce, a Democrat from Milton, who is among those championing the idea, said the next step would be to examine the economic viability of the project.
