First Wind plans to host a ribbon-cutting event on April 6 near Danforth, Maine, to celebrate the beginning of commercial operations for the 26 MW expansion of its Stetson Wind project.
Breaking ground in November 2009, the expansion created 200 construction jobs to install the 17 additional GE 1.5 MW wind turbines. When combined with the first phase of the project, the Stetson Wind project is now an 83 MW renewable energy facility.
Speakers will include First Wind CEO Paul Gaynor, and community members and local business owners.
