DIXFIELD – Residents will have a chance to learn about a proposed wind turbine project for the Colonel Holman Mountain ridgeline at an open house at 6 p.m. Thursday at Ludden Memorial Library.

The session will be hosted by developers Patriot Renewables LLC of Quincy, Mass. A dozen or more “stations” will be set up by Patriot’s scientific and permitting team.

A variety of maps showing the planned placement of turbines, transmission lines and substation as it relates to sound, wildlife and other factors will be on display with specialists available to answer questions.

A representative will also be available to discuss the environmental permitting process. A consultant from Eaton Peabody, the firm hired by the town with Patriot funding, will discuss the financial and tax implications of siting a wind turbine project in town.

The wind energy firm has planned construction of 13 industrial wind turbines on privately owned, leased land. The firm has several other wind projects under development in Carthage, Canton and Woodstock.
