Champlain Wind LLC, a project company of wind energy developer First Wind, has submitted an application to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for a revision to its original design for the 48 MW Bowers Wind project, which is proposed for Maine's Penobscot and Washington counties.

Key changes to the project's design including the following:


“Since 2009, we have been listening to people who live in and around the project area to make sure that their input is considered in the design of the project,” says Neil Kiely, First Wind’s director of development. “Although it is early in the review process, we are extremely encouraged by the support we have received.”

About 144 residents live in the host community of Carroll Plantation. Recently, 112 residents and landowners have signed a petition in support for the project.
