Our Purpose

Working together we can continue to protect the high-value natural resources that will sustain Moosehead's unique quality of place and way of life for generations to come.

Wondering what you can do to help?

Take Action

  • Quality of Place is the economic backbone of our region.

  • Over 85% of Maine wind power is sold to out-of-state utilities.

  • Maine turbines are idle 70% of the time.

  • Thank you for speaking up and trying to stop wind power development around Moosehead. I regularly vacation in the area, sometimes think of buying a second home or property there. I would never do that if I had to look at the industrial skyline, towers and blinking lights, that come with wind power. And once they’re up, they’re up for good. I, my family and friends, will go to other places that don’t destroy the views and wilderness experience. It’s that simple.
