Proposed Wind Power Project near Downeast Lakes

June 3, 2011

Champlain Wind, LLC, a subsidiary of First Wind Maine Holdings, LLC has proposed a wind power development on ridges in Carroll Plantation and Kossuth Township.  The proposed development includes 27 turbines, each with a height of up to 428 feet, to be installed on Bowers Mountain and Dill Hill.  The turbines and their required lights would be visible from West Grand Lake and other lakes in the region.  The project has a potential capacity to generate up to 69.1 megawatts, though typical operating output would be lower.  The Land Use Regulation Commission has scheduled a public hearing for June 27 and 28.
