The public weighs in on a proposed wind farm

The Helen S Dunn School in Greenbush was full of people who wanted to give their opinion to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, about the proposed wind farm atop of Passadumkead Ridge.

Maine D.E.P. Commissioner Patricia Aho said this was the first public meeting held on this issue. Aho said tonight’s meeting was all about the public. She wanted to get the public’s input on the D.E.P’s draft analysis regarding the wind farm.

More than a hundred people filled the gymnasium at the school to give Aho and her staff their opinions of the proposed wind farm.

“I just care about the area so much. I think Maine is so beautiful. I’ve lived here 10 years and I think it’s just so beautiful and I hate to see it desecrated by wind turbines,” Grand Falls Plantation resident Margie Deschene said.

“We’re going to take a look at all their comment and eventually we will start to determine how we wish to draft any typed of particular license or permit for this project. So the next step after this will be for staff at DEP to undertake their analysis based on a lot of the public input as well as the science and information that we would provide,” D.E.P. Commissioner Patricia Aho said.

According to a D.E.P. spokesperson the project would have 14 turbines spanning nearly 100 acres.
