YARMOUTH — Developers of a proposed windmill project on two western Maine mountains said Wednesday that scaling back the project, as suggested by an environmental group, would doom their Redington Wind Farm plan. Maine Mountain Power is seeking state approval to build 30 wind turbines, 12 on Redington Pond Range and 18 on Black Nubble Mountain near the Sugarloaf USA ski resort. Hearings get under way next Tuesday in Carrabassett Valley.
