Wind towers unsightly

Sun Journal | February 18, 2017 | www.sunjournal.com

I write in response to Diana Tozier’s letter (Feb. 9) that was in response to Betsey Foster’s letter (Feb. 4).

I am pro-environment, and I am against wind towers that are 600 feet tall (check facts on the state web site). Each tower requires one acre of cement, and there are 17 towers proposed, just to start with.

My concern is for the balance of nature – the birds, bats, bees and others that are affected by wind towers. The balance of nature would be destroyed.

It is selfish and short-sighted to have Maine carry the load for other states without the benefit from the power source.

A wind farm would also be unsightly in such a pristine place. I don’t want to imagine 17-plus towers 600 feet tall.
