some questions I had from LUPC Milton meet.

Bat deaths were same at SMW as other wind projects in Maine. 23.4 bats a year.
Does she or LUPC know how they count bird mortalities at the projects?
They plant dead carcasses on site.

Maine's transmission upgrade is almost done...
Maine can transfer 1400 MW out of state.
Maine has 431 MW from 254 turbines in place.
333 more 3 MW turbines will fill the plate.
I read where 618 more turbines are planned in Maine.
We need to stop 285 turbines this year.

Does anyone have a map of all projects, now and upcoming?
Any person that owns a camp (or has plans to build) with-in 2 miles of a Wind project has the right to appeal.

Standing is limited to harm done. ie. = with-in 2 miles of turbine.
I comment on Complaint Protocol as the DEP procedure, at present, has the Developer in…Continue
