New Mass. Administration, New Wind Farm
From the Berkshire Eagle comes a report that the Brodie Mountain wind farm in Western Massachusetts, stalled for many years by a variety of delaying tactics, is finally moving forward and expected to be operational by 2010.
The project was recently bought from a private developer by Berkshire Wind Power Cooperative Group, a collaborative of 14 municipal utilities that are members of the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Co. Observers credit the administration of Gov. Deval Patrick (D), elected on a pro-wind platform, with helping to break the logjam.
