Camden, Maine to set up Ragged Mountain Wind Work Group. No financial or other committments made

On August 17th the Camden Selectboard  listened to a precautionary report by Concerned Citizens against windfarm on Ragged Mountain, then, following discussion and questions by citizens at the meeting, voted to accept a memo from the Camden Energy Committee and adopt  the energy committee's recommendation to set up a Ragged Mountain  Wind Work Group.

Below are recordings of the Ragged Mountain  part of the select board  meeting,   (Listen to August 13 meeting of the Camden Energy Committee discussing the memo and recommendations) 

There was mention of the windmills on Vinalhaven. For reference, here is a link to an hour long audio recording of the Vinalhaven wind turbines, recorded from the porch of a house 1/2 mile away on January 1, 2010. This is likely what could be expected to become the ambience of the Snow Bowl if wind extractors get set up on the ridges
