GRAND FALLS TOWNSHIP, Maine (AP) — Maine's environmental commissioner has accepted a recommendation to reject an application to build a 14-turbine wind farm on Passadumkeag Mountain in Penobscot County.

The Department of Environmental Protection's recommendation went to DEP Commissioner Patricia Aho. The DEP staff said the proposed windmills would mar the region's scenery.

The developer, Quantum Utility Generation, an alternative energy company based in Houston, may appeal the department's decision within 30 days to either the Board of Environmental Protection or to Superior Court.
