Former guv banks on wind
Angus King is entering the wind power business.Last month, Independence Wind LLC, a company the former Independent Maine governor created last winter with Rob Gardiner, who once headed Maine Public Broadcasting Corp., erected two test towers on Flathead Mountain and Record Hill in northern Oxford County, according to the Sun Journal in Lewiston. The towers will collect wind data for six months to test the feasibility of building a 25-tower wind farm on the location.
The wind farm is still in the concept phase, but is slated to cost between $60 million and $80 million and expected to generate enough electricity to power all the homes in Oxford County for a year, Gardiner told the paper.
