To The Daily Sun,
Iberdrola is in the process of applying for an application to build the Wild Meadows Wind Project in Alexandria and Danbury in the Newfound Lake, Mount Cardigan area. When they first announced their intentions in September of 2012 they came to these towns to talk about the project. At those meetings they said that they were good neighbors but if the host towns did not want them to build they would not. Mr. Ed Cherian, the spokesman for this project, said that loudly and publicly.
Since those initial meetings both towns have had elections and the results are very clear. The towns have voted that they do not want this large wind project in their backyards. In fact the whole Newfound/Cardigan area has spoken loudly and the opposition to this project is widespread and profound. Not one group, business or municipality has come out in favor of Wild Meadows. In fact many of the towns around the host towns are planning to become legal interveners to the project. There has never been so much overwhelming opposition to a wind project in our state.
This is an open letter to Iberdrola to respond to what they said they would do, not move forward with this project if it is not wanted. Not holding true to their word at this early juncture is a scary proposition for the future dealings with this company. I, and many others would like them to publicly respond in this newspaper. Lets see what they have to say. If you do not see a response to this open letter that will just continue to show how this company is not being truthful and is not a neighbor we want!
