Voice Your Support for the Bowers Wind Project!
Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection will soon decide whether to approve the 16-turbine, 48-megawatt Bowers Wind Project in Penobscot and Washington Counties.
After careful review of the project application, Sierra Club Maine decided to support the project because it will reduce air and global warming pollution, create good local green jobs, and help to move Maine into a cleaner energy future.
The project is supported locally and statewide, including by Maine Audubon, the American Lung Association of Maine, Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, and the Passamaquoddy Tribe, the largest landowner to the south of the project. The location of the project is a commercial timberland site that was clear-cut by previous owners and has no rare, endangered, or threatened species.

Dear Commissioner Patty Aho,
I am writing to voice my support for the Bowers Wind Project under review by Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection.
The 16-turbine, 48-megawatt project will reduce pollution, create good local jobs, and help to meet our state's critically-important renewable energy goals. The project is supported locally and statewide by a number of organizations, including by Sierra Club Maine, Audubon Society, American Lung Association, Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, Conservation Law Foundation, and the Passamaquoddy Tribe.
I urge you to approve the Bowers Wind Project. It represents an important step in moving our state into a cleaner energy future.
