Plans to build New England’s largest wind farm in southern Aroostook County were submitted to state regulators last month, according to developer. EDP Renewables
The project, which would have up to 119 turbines, would be located about 9 miles west of Bridgewater.
The company said it plans to build a benefits package worth about $2 million for neighboring communities that would help reduce energy costs for people in the area by paying for installation of high-efficiency heat pumps and other energy-efficient upgrades.
What an offer !!!!
Energias de Portugal is headquartered in Madrid, Spain (EDP)
The Number Nine project would be about 35% larger than the state’s biggest wind farm to date, which is located near the town of Bingham. That SunEdison project started construction this summer and has a nameplate capacity of 185 megawatts.
In my book of math, 56 -119 is at least 200% though 19 additional turbines would 35%.
Is this why BDN is now printed by an out-of-state Corporation owned by the Chinese founded and owned Sun Media Group, they just couldn't do the math to remain profitable? Biased in their reporting by "that state's" needs.
