UPC Wind commemorated the first year of full commercial operations for Mars Hill Wind at an anniversary event. Since beginning commercial operations on March 27, 2007, Mars Hill Wind has generated more than 1.3 million kWh of electricity and a corresponding number of Green-e certified renewable energy certificates.

At an event hosted by UPC Wind and the Maine Department of Conservation at the Big Rock Ski Area in Mars Hill, Maine, Gov. John E. Baldacci, D-Maine, spoke about the project and provided insight into the future development of wind power and other renewable resources in the state.

"The state of Maine is in a position to benefit from clean wind power projects such as Mars Hill Wind, which is why I created the Wind Power Development Task Force last year," Baldacci says. "In addition to serving as a source for renewable energy, these projects help reduce Maine's dependence on imported fossil fuels, provide economic development and promote security."
