Bristol Residents Question UMaine’s Offshore Wind Project, BDN Reports

The Bangor Daily News reported a committee appointed by the Bristol Board of Selectmen plans to determine whether the town should have input over the proposed offshore wind project by Maine Aqua Ventus, which includes the University of Maine and partner companies. The proposed project would be about 10 miles away from Bristol and 2.5 miles off Monhegan Island. Andrea Cox, the committee’s chairwoman said residents have shared some concerns about the proposed wind farm, but the group will create a website and seek answers before forming an opinion. She said UMaine representatives have met with the Board of Selectmen at two meetings and a public hearing on the project.
