CANTON, Maine (AP) - The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has given the green light to an eight-turbine wind project on Canton Mountain.

The 22.8-megawatt project approved this week will feature a 3,500-square-foot operations building and eight turbines, each extending 480 feet high. The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1vbDT9f ) reported that the project is part of a larger plan that could include wind projects in the adjacent towns of Dixfield and Carthage.

Patriots Renewables LLC of Quincy, Mass., has been working with the three towns.

Several public hearings on the $50 million development in Canton. Canton was the only one of the three towns that did not request a moratorium on wind energy projects.
