Small Wind Profile: Two Wind Turbines Supply Electricity to U.S. Border Station

Small Wind Profile: Two Wind Turbines Supply Electricity to U.S. Border Station

Staff at the GSA Boston office had been evaluating the wind energy opportunity since 2001. The combination of the remote Jackman, Maine, LPOE upgrade and the availability of ARRA [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act] funds led Roman Piaskoski, Chief of the Energy, Utilities & Environment Branch, to implement a distributed wind generation pilot project consisting of two Northern Power Systems 100-kW units. The turbines were installed in September 2010 but were not interconnected and on line with Hydro-Quebec (H-Q) until April 2011. With a measured wind speed of 6.1 mps (13.7 mph) at their 37-m (121-ft) hub height, the two units are expected to produce 400,000 kWh per year. The project goal was for the turbines to supply 50 percent of the Jackman LPOE’s annual electricity. The permitting was relatively straightforward as the site is GSA property and not close to residenti...
