First Wind begins expansion of Maine wind farm
The first phase of the Stetson Wind project began operations in January. This second phase of the project is designed to add 25.5 megawatts of capacity to the project. When the second phase of the project goes operational, something expected to happen next spring, the $200 million Stetson Wind project will have the capacity to generate a total of 82.5 megawatts of power, or roughly enough to supply 33,000 homes, First Wind said.
"Recently, Harvard University announced that it will purchase half of the power generated by the Stetson Wind II facility as well as the associated Renewable Energy Certificates," First Wind added in today's press release.
