As owners of a vibrant fishing lodge in eastern Maine that sustains 20 jobs in an otherwise fragile economy, my wife and I can attest to the threat of industrial wind projects to the unspoiled Maine landscape. Folks from away who sustain the outdoor sporting economy of Maine’s lodges and guides cringe at what we are doing to our pristine brand.
It is time that our regulators in Augusta wake up to the permanent damage being done for the benefit of a short-sighted economic injection. The people of Lexington and Concord townships are just the latest victims. In this case, the special interests are trumping democracy. Sad.
