Despite our best efforts, the Maine D.E.P. issued Patriot Renewables their site building permit. Because LD 2283 stripped away our rights to a public hearing before the Board of Environment Protection, we now are organizing to have Attorney Rufus Brown present our case on appeal. The D.E.P. realizes the sound levels for the turbines will be out of compliance with state law and are requiring Patriot to "power them back" 3 dBA at night. Pretty scary stuff.
We are planning an informational meeting in Woodstock, ME on Saturday 10/16/10 at 10 am in the Woodstock Elementary Gym. Rufus will be attending and can answer questions at that time.
