Developer says foes won't deter wind power project
Danbury selectmen said the ballot results of a vote taken last month would set the town's stance on the project. The count Wednesday night showed 249 residents opposed to the project and 116 residents in favor it.
But officials from Iberdrola Renewables aren't taking the Danbury vote as a sign that the town opposes Wild Meadows. The ballots went to 790 registered voters in town, and fewer than half responded.
Iberdrola and its local company, Atlantic Wind, don't need agreement from residents or the governments of the two towns to build. The authority for the project's permit rests with the state's Site Evaluation Committee, though the company is seeking local cooperation.
Selectmen from nearby towns also voiced their towns' opposition to the project at the Alexandria selectmen's meeting Tuesday night, and offered support to Danbury and Alexandria.
The towns will be able to comment during the yearlong SEC process for the project, state officials said, each with "a seat at the table" of the discussions and at SEC-sponsored local hearings.
