Wind Farm Planned for Washington Cty
The Passamaquoddy Tribe recently partnered with a Midwest energy firm to launch an ambitious $120 million wind farm project next to the tribe's 1,060 acres of blueberry barrens. The project could create up to 100 jobs for 50 turbines. The hope is the farm will generate between 36 and 72 megawatts of electricity. That could result in enough power to generate 200,000 homes for the year.
