Selectmen discussing Small Wind Ordinance

From the story in this week’s York Independent:

YORK – With concerns about energy independence at the forefront on the national scene, local officials are considering whether this seaside town should allow residents the option of building small windmills on their property.

And of course we’re in support of it!

Eric Hopkins of the York Energy Efficiency Committee spoke in favor of moving forward with the plan, citing the significant limitations included in the proposed ordinance.

“The town is coming to grips with whether or not it wants to allow private citizens to generate their own power on their own property,” he said, praising Grimando and those involved in the draft ordinance for the research that has gone into it in terms of appearance of the turbines and impact on neighbors. “It’s a very important step.”

The next public hearing on the wind ordinance will be March 23rd at 7pm in the York Public Library
