Wind Turbine Project Approved

ELLSWORTH — The state Land Use Regulation Commission Wednesday morning approved a 19-turbine wind facility in Township 16.

The $78.5-million project will be located on Bull and Heifer hills in T16, which borders Eastbrook.

The 34-megawatt Bull Hill Wind facility is expected to start up in 2012. Construction could begin before winter or next summer. A construction start date has not been firmed up yet, according to representatives of developer Blue Sky East, LLC, a subsidiary of Boston-based First Wind.
