Maine Wind Farm Proposal Back Again

The Maine wind farm proposal is back in the news in the Kennebec Morning Sentinel's 23 August 2007 issue under the headline "Wind project returns to table; Black Nubble project slated for public hearings."

"Black Nubble project is a smaller version of the Redington wind farm, which called for placing 30 turbines on both Redington Pond Range and Black Nubble.

"But environmental groups and groups that advocate for the Appalachian Trail, which passes close to the project, have said that while the one-mountain project is smaller, it still raises significant concerns."
The Black Nubble site is just over three miles from the Appalachian Trail, while Redington was about a mile away.
