No wind turbines  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, bangordailynews.com 8 May 2011 ~~

The arrogance of Travis Bullard from Eolian Renewable Energy as quoted in the BDN comes as no surprise. His company never produced a single megawatt of energy yet is attempting to install four to six industrial wind turbines on Mount Waldo in Frankfort.

His slant on the project is that three radio towers clustered at the peak constitute an industrial site, so why not disfigure the entire mountain, is ludicrous. He dismisses the opposition as “a knee jerk reaction from a small, vocal minority.” I guess a packed gym at the annual town meeting where the article seeking support for the project was unanimously passed over is a “small, vocal minority.”

He says, “We’re willing to sit at the table and talk about it.” Eolian has talked about it at two meetings and failed to adequately answer questions without spinning them like a top. My favorite is that he wants to “reach out to the folks against the project and tease out what their concerns are.” Tease? From what I’ve heard, concerns by townspeople have been forthright, vigorously researched and articulated.

Eolian is desperate with an impending moratorium and possible ordinance and are calling residents personally – using the notion that this wind turbine project could pay to keep our elementary school open and that an ordinance would negatively affect everybody in town. None of that is based in fact.

Eolian’s manipulative and disingenuous divide and conquer “community outreach” strategy will ultimately backfire because residents know what’s good for this town and it’s not industrial wind turbines.
