Business Description

The proposed Saddleback Ridge Wind Project in Carthage, Maine will generate clean, renewable electricity using 12 GE turbines, each with a rated capacity of 2.75 megawatts (2.75 million watts). These new GE turbines use state-of-the-art technology that maximizes efficiency and produces more electricity with fewer towers. An on-site meteorological tower has been collecting wind data since November 2008, and a second meteorological tower was installed this past fall to help make our wind speed measurements even more accurate. Environmental studies in the project area are complete, and we have begun the permitting process with Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Permit applications were submitted in October 2010, and our application was accepted as complete on November 15, 2010. Electronic versions of the application files can be found on the Maine DEP website. Patriot recently held an open house informational meeting for the Town of Carthage in October 2010, and experts in the areas of sound, visual impacts, engineering, wetlands and wildlife were on hand to answer questions. The DEP will be scheduling a public meeting on the project in the next few months to hear public comments on the project. Patriot mailed out a newsletter to all Carthage taxpayers in December 2010. Check out the Saddleback Ridge Fact Sheet presented to the Franklin County commissioners in February 2011.
