Developer, landowner appealing Passadumkeag Windpark decision
Posted Feb. 27, 2013, at 4:41 p.m.
...the ruling indicated the wind turbines would have a negative effect on the scenic nature of the lake. The views of Saponac Lake from the mountain are “one of a kind,” DEP spokeswoman Samantha Depoy-Warren said when Aho took the staff’s recommendation and issued the rejection in November.
The rejection was the first issued by the DEP regarding a wind project, Depoy-Warren said.
Penobscot Forest and Passadumkeag Windpark officials argue that the criteria for the rejection was flawed, the project’s impact on the lake viewshed is overstated and that the decision adversely affects those companies.
