Stories

Plymouth, MA: Future Generation Wind. 8 MW project on the Mann Family Cranberry Bog. Four turbines, spinning as of August 2016. Mass Energy will purchase approximately 1/3 of the renewable energy certificates on behalf of our members for six years, after which we will purchase even more! Take a photo tour

Lynn, MA: 600kW turbine Constructed November 2013 at Lynn Water & Sewer. Take a photo tour

Scituate, MA: 1.5 MW turbine completed April 2012 - a partnership between the town of Scituate and the turbine developers Scituate Wind, LLC. Scituate receives credit for the turbine's electron sales to the local utility, Eversource. This saves the community millions of dollars on electricity over time. Take a photo tour.

Gloucester, MA: Two 2 MW turbines completed December 2012 - a partnership between the city of Gloucester and the turbine developers Equity Industrial Partners. Gloucester receives credit for the turbines' electron sales to the local utility, National Grid. This saves the community millions of dollars on electricity over time. Take a photo tour.

Ipswich, MA: We support one of two 2 MW turbines completed December 2012. Take a photo tour.

Wrentham, MA: 100kW turbine at Mount St. Mary’s Abbey. The nuns at Mount Saint Mary's Abbey host wind, geothermal, and solar on their property. They benefit from land lease agreements or from electron sales, which helps support their lifestyle and their wonderful candy business. (You gotta try the candy) Take a photo tour.

Charlemont, MA: 900kW turbine at Berkshire East Ski Resort, completed in 2010. This family-owned mountain resort was struggling to pay the electric bills from snow-making. That's when they embarked on a wind project, and they didn't stop there, installing solar later on. Electron sales from both projects have made a huge financial difference for our favorite ski resort. Take a photo tour.

Hull 1 & 2, MA: 600 kW turbine (Hull 1) owned by Hull Municipal Light Department. It was the first community-scale turbine ever built in MA! The turbine is right near the high school, proving that people and turbines can co-exist peacefully and happily. Later, the community built a second turbine. We now support both! Take a photo tour.

Medford, MA: 100 kW turbine at McGlynn School. Electron sales from the turbine benefit the school (lowering its electric bill) and the turbine, "Windy," serves as a teaching tool and beloved community landmark. Take a photo tour.

Worcester, MA: Turbine at Holy Name Catholic High School. "We've never had a bird death from the turbine, but we have had one or two birds fly into the school building," remarks Ed Reynolds, headmaster at the school, when asked if turbines are dangerous for birds (Mass Audubon doesn't think so either). Take a photo tour.

Portsmouth, RI: Portsmouth Abbey School. 660kW wind turbine owned by Portsmouth Abbey Monastery and School. Installed in 2006, the turbine supplies 40 percent of the School’s and Monastery’s overall electrical energy use and produces enough electricity to power an average of 175 homes annually. Thousands have toured the Portsmouth Abbey wind turbine, and you can too! Take a photo tour
