Third wind farm in the works for Newfound Lake

There’s a third wind farm in the works in the Newfound Lake Region. Spanish Wind company EDP renewables is studying wind potential in the towns of Groton and Alexandria. The zoning board and selectmen in Groton have voted to allow EDP to install a meteorological tower, which is one of many steps on the road toward proposing a wind farm.

Bob Piehler – part of a group of activists from around Newfound lake opposes any new wind project in the region – says EDP showed a mockup of where the potential turbines could be placed.

Piehler: They’ve already penciled in where they want the turbines to be, so that kind of got a lot of people’s feathers ruffled.

EDP did not respond to a request for comment by deadline.

There are two wind farms in operation in New Hampshire, in Lempster and in Coos county. Two more – one in Antrim and another Alexandria, Grafton and Danbury – have been proposed and are working their way through the permitting process. Many of these projects have proved controversial as they work their way through permitting.

EDP renewables operated 28 wind farms aroudn the country, totaling almost 47 gigawatts of installed capacity, which is about 8 percent of the US wind market.
