A controversial wind project in Derby Line is now on hold.
Developers hoped to build two turbines at two separate farms in Derby. But the communities of Derby and Stanstead, Quebec, were divided on the issue. The mayor of Stanstead even threatened to shut off the water supply to Derby if the plan went through.
Now, the developer tells WCAX News the more controversial of the two turbines, planned for Smugglers Hill Farm, will not be built. They hope to continue with the other turbine on the Grandview Farm, but will make that decision later this year.
