Maine Blows Region's Wind Power to New Levels



January 25, 2009 By

Maine is now New England's leading wind-power state with a daily capacity of 85 megawatts generated from two farms, according to Gov. John Baldacci in the Bangor Daily News. On Jan. 22, 2009, the state's second wind farm started generating power. It's located in Washington County along the Stetson Mountain ridgeline, and its 38 turbines can generate up to 57 megawatts of electricity daily. The farm's construction began more than a year ago and created 350 jobs.

The original wind farm -- located on the summit of Mars Hill Mountain -- consists of 28 turbines that can generate 28 megawatts of electricity. The two wind farms represent the state's aggressive pursuit of alternative energy.
