NH wind project nixed amid concerns over 2nd plant

A proposal for a 23-turbine wind farm in central New Hampshire is dead because of what the project developer calls an unfavorable political and regulatory climate in the state.
In a statement released Tuesday, Iberdrola Renewals says it is abandoning the Wild Meadows project in Danbury and Alexandria. In February, Iberdrola had said the $150 million project was on "pause" while it worked on outstanding issues at another, 24-turbine farm in Groton.
Wild Meadows had called for 23 turbines, each 492 feet tall. State officials tout such projects as important steps toward generating 25 percent of New Hampshire's energy from renewable sources by 2025.
The project was opposed by some groups that say wind power is not an economical answer to the region's power challenges and would ruin the state's natural beauty.
