As of yesterday (10/21/11) the UMPI website had posted a new explanation for not working:
Partially: ".........We hope that this (the resolution of a shaft alignment problem) will be in a few days and that we will be operating for the primary wind months".

The following quotes are taken from the Bowers Wind application Exhibit 17, Visual Impact Assessment (VIA) and First Wind's Sworn Testimony. Those of us who are familiar with this unique region should be outraged at their arrogance. Do they think the LURC Commissioners and the people of… Continue
