Kibby Mountain wind transmission

Kibbywindtransmission_thumb This photo shows the enormity of the transmission lines erected to transport energy from the Kibby Mountain wind facility in Northern Maine. The poles are approximately 100-feet tall, well above the 35-foot tall distribution lines in the foreground. These lines, which run for miles, are very visible contribution to the industrialization of the area. The rights of way are typically 80-100 feet in width creating extensive habitat fragmentation beyond the turbine site.
