Beckfords of Rebel Hill Farm in Clifton score court victory on Wednesday.  

Credit:  Posted by Peter Beckford on December 11, 2013 | Citizens' Taks Force on Wind Power - Maine | www.windtaskforce.org ~~

The Business and Consumer Court (Judge Horton presiding) “grants the appeal of Peter and Julie Beckford and vacates the approval of Pisgah’s industrial wind energy project.” The sentence pretty much leapt off page 1 of the December 11 decision. As our favorite Red Sox announcer would say, “Had ’em all the way!”

So maybe travelers won’t be seeing five 450′ turbines as they pass Bangor on the interstate. Maybe life will return to normal for the many Clifton residents who have had to deal w/this struggle for 4 years. Or maybe the town government will continue to try to give the developer a free pass. But if they do, they’ll know the costs for Clifton will only mount, and they’ll know that it’s not true that city hall is unbeatable. Clifton has spent over $75,000 and has nothing but a fighting-town to show for it. (We used to be a get-along town.)

Thanks everybody for your support to us and all the other battles in Maine. Stay tuned as our next game becomes a local political one.

peace, Pete and Julie
