State applies for windfarm permit, Maine lobstering union files lawsuit

A non-commercial research windfarm in 15 square miles of the Gulf of Maine due south of Monhegan Island and east of Kennebunkport is the objective of an application that the Maine Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) submitted last week to the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). It is the first step in one of Gov. Janet Mills’ signature policy initiatives: bringing Maine to a position to require 100 percent renewable energy use by the year 2050.
