Part 2: Examining the changes in rules recommended by the task force and the resulting law.

Some who created wind-power fast track now questioning the goals they set | Bangor Daily News

[Below is a link to the first in a three-part series by The Bangor Daily News in association with the Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting about wind power in Maine. The first part raised some very interesting issues about transparency in passing the law to deal with wind farm development. The first part also pointed out several other flaws in the Wind Energy Act of 2008. I support the idea of alternative, sustainable energy, so I really hope they figure out how to do what’s best for everyone. I’ll attempt to share each part of the series. – KM]
