State Land Use Regulators May Deny Expedited Permit for Wind Turbines 

Maine land-use regulators are hinting they’ll deny an expedited permit to a Canadian company that wants to build a third series of wind turbines in Maine’s western hills.Transcanada has twenty-two towers turning out power and twenty-two others under construction at Kibby mountain near Stratton.The company wants to build fifteen more wind towers in that region and has asked for quick permitting for the project.But state regulators have indicated they’ll oppose rushing the process, and it’s not clear if Transcanada has any appetite for taking a longer route.
