UPC Wind Moving Forward with Wind Project in Maine

LCG, April 25, 2007--UPC Wind Monday announced that it is building support for its proposed Stetson Wind Project in Washington County, Maine. Community leaders are looking favorably on the project, which will bring jobs, revenues and 57 MW of clean, renewable electric generating capacity to the area.

The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission recently deemed the project's rezoning petition as complete, and a full review of the project by the Commission, including public hearings, will follow.

The proposed Stetson Wind Project consists of 38 GE 1.5 MW wind turbines.

UPC Wind is based in Newton, Massachusetts, with a number of projects in North America. Earlier this month, UPC Wind filed its site certification application with the Oregon Energy and Facility Siting Council to build the proposed Cascade Wind Project in Oregon. UPC Wind expects the 60-MW project to achieve commercial operations in 2008.
