The Camden Hills and the islands of Penobscot Bay are one of Maine's treasures. Several wind warriors and I hiked up Bald Mt., from which summit there is a sweeping view of the islands of Penobscot Bay. Even on a hazy day, the controversial wind turbines on Vinalhaven stuck out like a sore thumb! This beautiful island has been desecrated by ugly wind turbines.
Here is an archived photo (unknown photographer) of the Vinalhaven turbines from close to shore. These turbines were supposed to reduce the islanders' high electricity bills but have not performed well enough to do so. Meanwhile, it has driven neighbors to abandon their homes.
