Recreation, Hunting, and Mount Arvon
How will the project affect Mount Arvon and access to the lands around it?
We are proposing a wind energy facility that would include approximately 49 wind turbines. To give some idea of the scale of this project, the turbines and associated access roads would occupy about 120 acres spread out across the approximately 28,000-acre project area. This is less than 1 percent of the total land area.
No wind turbines will be located on Mount Arvon. In addition, the land would still be accessible to the public, as it is today. In fact, because we are proposing to use existing roads and trails as much as possible during construction, we will have to improve some of them as we go, making it better for area residents and tourists to use. When construction is complete, RES will return the roads to use for hunting, snowmobiling, hiking, and other recreational uses.
