Three wind turbines supplied by GE are producing power for the residents of Vinalhaven and North Haven, two year-round communities that comprise the Fox Islands located in Penobscot Bay in mid-coast Maine, US.

The community-owned wind facility, which has three GE 1.5 MW machines on site, was dedicated by project developer, Fox Islands Wind. On average, it is expected to generate approximately 11 GWh of electricity per year, supplying the island’s communities with year-round cleaner, more affordable power.

GE’s 1.5 MW wind turbines are the most widely deployed wind turbines in the world, says the company, with more than 12,000 now installed.
