Maine Gov. Paul R. Lepage has issued an order establishing the Maine Wind Energy Advisory Commission to study economic impacts of potential wind turbines, assess the economic impact of expedited wind rules and procedures, and develop recommendations in a written report. Until the report is issued in writing, no permits related to wind turbines are permitted. The order notes that "the scenic vistas and pristine waters of Western Maine, our coast and coastal islands, and our significant avian migratory pathways attract significant tourism to the State."
