Wind Power

Expected wind farm breeds opposition

A group of residents is fighting the first step of what they believe may become an unsightly wind farm on Gardner Mountain. The group opposes a request by UPC Wind Partners for a zoning variance to erect a 150-foot anemometer to measure wind along the mountainýs ridgeline. Members of the group, called Lyman Citizens for the Protection of Gardner Mountain, feel a variance would lead to a series of wind towers over 300 feet high along the ridge.
