The massive Oakfield Wind project has towers being erected at a steady pace. There will be 50 Vestas V112 turbines when complete, each standing 492 ft tall from base to apex of the blade. This project represents one of the worst travesties in our sordid history of wind power projects in Maine, as DEP Commissioner Aho allowed First Wind (now SunEdison) to amend an existing license for 35 1.5 MW GE turbines, each at 389 ft tall, and expand it to this completely different project, impacting a far broader area. Now the project clearly impacts high quality Pleasant Pond and Mattawamkeag Lake, unlike with the previous approved project. There was only a "public comment meeting"--no hearing and no re-filing as a different project starting at the beginning, which clearly should have been the case. Here are some photos that have come in recently.
