Media Report on Island Residents’ Concerns Over Proposed Offshore Wind Project

The Associated Press and Portland Press Herald reported on the concerns of some Monhegan residents over the proposed offshore wind project by Maine Aqua Ventus, which includes the University of Maine and partner companies. Some residents wonder if the 12-megawatt project with two turbines will disrupt the island’s tranquility and hurt tourism. Jake Ward, UMaine’s vice president for innovation and economic development, said the project is a “huge opportunity for an island that has a diminishing year-round population.” Boston.com, NECN, WLBZ (Channel 2), Houston Chronicle, MPBN and Sun Journal carried the AP report.
