Data: Lincoln 'reasonable site' for wind farm  

LINCOLN, Maine – Data gathered at Rocky Dundee Road and Grandma’s Mountain off Route 6 show the sites could support a Stetson Mountain-sized wind farm for electricity generation, the site’s prospective operator said Monday.

Matt Kearns, project manager with UPC Wind of Massachusetts, said it’s too soon to decide whether to build a Lincoln farm, but the data shows “it’s a reasonable site.

“It has potential to be developed as a generation site,” Kearns said. “There are lots of other variables that need to be evaluated and there are other variables that affect the potential feasibility of the project, but the wind resource information supports continued investigation.”

Evergreen Wind Power LLC, a subsidiary of UPC Wind, built two meteorological towers worth $90,000 on the sites late last year to test the suitability of those areas for wind-energy towers. Landowner David Susen of Lincoln received a building permit for a $30,000 tower on a farm near the mountain on Nov. 1. Landowner Herbert Haynes Jr. of Lakeville Shores, Inc. of Winn received a building permit for a $60,000 tower on Rocky Dundee Road the same day, town records indicate.
