The proposed Saddleback Ridge Wind Project in Carthage, Maine will generate clean, renewable electricity using 12 GE turbines, each with a rated capacity of 2.75 megawatts (2.75 million watts). These new GE turbines use state-of-the-art technology that maximizes efficiency and produces more electricity with fewer towers.
The project, with a total capacity of 33 MW will produce more than 100 million kilowatt-hours of clean emission-free, renewable energy - enough to power approximately 16,000 homes.
