The Land Use Regulatory Commission has begun deliberations on the Bowers Mountain Wind project, which CLF supported as an intervener. Sean Mahoney presented a closing statement in support of the project (Sean Mahoney Closing Statement 10-5-11) which built upon the testimony of Abigail Krich (Abigail Krich Direct Testimony 6-10-11 and Dr. Cameron Wake (Dr. Cameron Wake Direct Testimony 6-10-11). As with many wind power projects in Maine today, the biggest issue for LURC to resolve is the project’s impact on scenic resources in the area. The testimony of Roger Milliken (Roger Milliken Direct Testimony 6-10-11) spoke to the push and pull of that issue eloquently. A decision from LURC on the project is expected sometime in early November.
