Ellsworth – Hearings are scheduled for next week surrounding another proposed wind farm in our state.
First Wind has an application to build 19 turbines in Hancock County on Bull Hill.
The public hearings will be held May 16th and 17th in Ellsworth at 6pm at the Ramada Inn.
The group opposed to this wind farm says it will ruin the views in the Acadia Park region and will be visible from Cadillac Mountain and the Schoodic Scenic Byway and Blackwoods Byway among other places.
