A surprise permit rejection by Maine's Land Use Regulation Commission killed pla
A surprise permit rejection by Maine's Land Use Regulation Commission killed plans for a wind farm at Redington Pond/Black Nubble, in sight of the Appalachian Trail. There are proposals for a "half project" on Black Nubble, proposals for Kibby and Stetson mountains, and a wind farm already in operation on Mars Hill. The National Resources Council of Maine opposed the Redington project but supports one on the Black Nubble ridge farther from the AT. Maine Audubon and the Appalachian Mountain Club say the project could still threaten two endangered high mountain species. Harley Lee, president of Endless Energy of Yarmouth, pursued the Redington project for 17 years and is still hopeful about the Black Nubble project. The four projects together could power more than 100,000 homes.
