The Spruce Mountain Wind Project is a 20 megawatt, 10-turbine wind project located in Woodstock, Maine. The project took about 6 months to build and provided jobs for about 150 workers. Spruce Mountain Wind was commissioned in December 2011.
Spruce Mountain Wind's ten Gamesa G90 2-MW wind turbines will produce more than 60 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of emission-free electricity each year. That is enough to power about 9,600 homes (based on 500 kWh per home per month) and reduces the amount of CO2 emissions by the equivalent of almost 5 million gallons of gasoline.
Spruce Mountain Wind was developed by Patriot Renewables, LLC and constructed by Eco Industries, LLC, an affiliate of Jay Cashman, Inc. The project is owned and operated by Patriot Renewables.
