Endless Energy, a pioneer in the field, gained its initial experience in commercial wind power generation through a turbine installed at Allen's blueberry processing facility in Orland, Maine, from 2000 to 2007. It was experimental, with the intent of learning more about the economics of coastal wind power at business sites. The 50kW machine was partially funded by a development grant provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. It was sold in the spring of 2007 to Entegrity Windsystems of Canada which has not yet removed the machine.
Over the years, Endless Energy has helped lay the groundwork for wind farm development in Maine and throughout New England. Among its accomplishments:
We’re currently planning community-based wind power projects in Maine and Vermont. To learn more about our innovative wind farms, visit the Projects section.
Wind power has been used since the earliest recorded history. Find out about the current wind industry and the benefits that projects can bring to local communities.
