After withdrawing its previous petition to intervene, Maine Audubon, a Falmouth, Maine-based conservation organization, now plans to file with the Maine Land Use Regulatory Commission (LURC) its official support for a 57 MW wind power project proposed for Stetson Mountain in Maine.

Evergreen Windpower V LLC, the project's developer, plans to erect 38 turbines in the Stetson Mountain area, which is about seven miles southwest of Danforth, Maine. The company is seeking rezoning of approximately 4,800 acres - as well as a preliminary development permit for the project.

Based on discussions with Maine Audubon, Evergreen Windpower has agreed to submit to LURC changes to improve its proposal from a wildlife conservation perspective, Maine Audubon notes. The company also has agreed to mitigate adverse effects on species that may be harmed by the turbines.

In addition, Maine Audubon supports a 44-turbine wind power project on Maine's Kibby Mountain now that project developer TransCanada has amended its application to LURC to include additional measures to reduce potential harm to wildlife, habitat and scenic resources.
