Meetings to Begin About Wind Power 

The first of five meetings to take place in Ellsworth concering possible sites for testing offshore wind power technology. At the moment, there are seven possible sites from the souther waters off of York County to the far eastern stretches of Maine. A decision needs to be made on December 15th to pick which location or locations will be used to test this new technology. These deep water wind farms will be operating on floating platforms in waters that are hundreds of feet deep. The first public information meeting about the sites takes placefrom 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Ellsworth. Other meetings are scheduled later this month in Machias, Wiscasset, Rockport and Wells.
