NAW Staff, Thursday 08 November 2007 - 10:27:09

UPC Wind has received approval from the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission on its rezoning petition and preliminary plan for the company's proposed 57 MW Stetson Wind Project in Washington County, Maine.

According to UPC, the Stetson Mountain location's ridge serves as an excellent source of wind, the site has no residential property closer than 2,500 feet and the project will have minimal environmental impact as the ridge already has existing roads in place.

Upon completion, the Stetson Wind Project will consist of the construction and operation of 38 GE 1.5 MW wind turbines and will produce about 150 million kWh of electricity annually.
