More wind in Oakfield  

Credit:  bangordailynews.com 24 January 2012 ~~

I’m surprised the Oakfield wind development project has not been in the news very much. First Wind has asked for (and been granted) an increase in the scope of their project. Now the hills around Oakfield and Island Falls will have 50 turbines that are 450 feet tall instead of 34.

Wouldn’t this be visible from the summit of Mount Katahdin? Is wind power really enough of a game-changer to offset the loss of these towns’ bucolic nature? What else do they have left?
