On Sunday, May 1, I spent the day in Lincoln photographing the Rollins Project of First Wind. All 40 turbines are completed. They are now doing electrical work in preparation for testing and smoothing over the scars on the land. There is no smoothing over the fact that extensive blasting and leveling of the mostly brittle shale ridges have mis-shapened them forever. Gary Steinberg and I hiked up the north end of Rollins Mt. and there was so little wind that even if the project was operational, no electrons would have been produced.
Here are the links to the photos of Rollins Project in Lincoln Lakes. Two sets, a set I took from the ground on the hike and driving around the area; another set from the fly over I did with intrepid pilot Gary Steinberg. We must get these images out to everyone, so please distribute them widely. People must know that this is just the latest in a huge number of planned projects. Let these photos warn others of what is likely coming to a ridge near them!
