This site was generated by volunteer residents of Montville who gave generously of their time and talents in an effort to inform their neighbors of the other realities of industrial wind power.

The site remains online as a resource to help other Mainers, and anyone else who is  exploring the issue of industrial wind facilities and how such facilities may affect them.

Thank you, Montville !
For the vote on the Ordinance,
90 yes   38 no
at our Annual Town Meeting on March 27, 2010

Thank you for voting to protect our neighbors, our town, our hills and mountains, our birds and wildlife, our way of life, our quality of life.
