Wind Power Takes A New Turn In The Granite State

Wind Farm in Groton, NH by Donna Hiltz.jpg

A proposed wind farm in the Newfound lake area has once again raised familiar themes in New Hampsire:  A desire for the Granite state to use more clean energy, versus local concerns over property values, as well as impacts on the environment and tourism.  We’ll re-examine these arguments in light of this new proposal. 


  • Sam Evans-Brown - NHPR's Environment Reporter.
  • Edward Cherian - Regional Development Director for Iberdrola Renewables, which develops renewable energy projects and is the second-largest wind operator in the U.S.
  • Lisa Linowes - Executive Director of Industrial Wind Action Group, a national advocacy group focused on issues associated with industrial wind energy development.  The group often raises questions about or opposes wind-energy projects, including in New Hampshire.

We'll also hear from:

  • Christopher Courchesne - Staff Attorney for the Conservation Law Foundation – New Hampshire.
