Windmills intrusive

The closing paragraph in the article about the wind farm proposed for western Maine near Sugarloaf contains a factual error. The 30MW rating for “each” of the 45 wind turbines is incorrect. The figure may be correct for the total output of all 45 machines, but not for an individual unit.

Having seen the aesthetic and scenic blight caused by windmills in my travels through California, I can’t imagine that Mainers are ready for so violent an intrusion upon the scenic beauty that is Maine.
