Credit:  The Associated Press, bangordailynews.com 9 January 2012 ~~

FREEPORT, Maine – The Greater Portland Council of Governments and the Windependence group that promotes wind energy are holding events this week to promote the idea of municipally owned wind power.

The council’s Jennifer Puser says the technology and ownership model represent a “perfect match for municipalities.” She says she looks forward to seeing projects get off the ground.

Experts from as far away as California and British Columbia will be participating in events Wednesday and Thursday in Freeport and Augusta.

Freeport’s event on Wednesday will be aimed at wind turbine installers, engineers, architects and others. Separate events Wednesday and Thursday in Augusta are being held in conjunction with the Maine Agricultural Trade Show. They’re aimed at farmers and others who’re interested in community wind.
