206 votes for the protective ordinance and 41 against meaning 83% of the vote went against wind. Congratulations Greenwood.
Funny how the wind industry's rigged polls tell us just the opposite. Folks, these ordinance votes are the real polls. When put to a real vote, over 90% of protective wind ordinances pass. What is it about "Mainers don't want wind power" do the politicians, paid off environmental groups and completely biased media not understand?

GREENWOOD — Greenwood residents Monday overwhelmingly approved proposed amendments to the commercial wind farm section of town ordinance, effectively banning such farms through a new tower height restriction.
The vote was 206-41.
Due to the large turnout, the meeting started 45 minutes late. But there was no discussion or questions posed, and the secret ballot began quickly.
The Calpine Corporation has been studying the feasibility of putting a 13-turbine Long Mountain Wind Farm project in the area of Long, Tibbetts and Elwell mountains.
In the previous ordinance there were no tower height limits specified. Greenwood’s Ordinance Review Committee recommended limiting heights to 250 feet. Calpine said it would need towers that are more than 500 feet for the project to be viable.
