FARMINGTON, Maine — Maine land use regulators are going to consider a revised plan to add 11 more wind turbines to the Kibby region of western Maine near the Canadian border.

The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission is scheduled to meet next Wednesday to consider a proposal by TransCanada Maine Wind Development to add 11 more turbines to the 44 producing power or under construction on Kibby Mountain and in the Kibby Range.

The turbines would be capable of generating 33 megawatts of electricity.

The company had originally proposed building 15 addition turbines.

The Sun Journal of Lewiston says the additional turbines would be installed on the Sisk Mountain ridgeline.
