Developer Courts New Hampshire for Wind Farm

June 23, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Hydropower has supplied energy to the towns in Coos County, New Hampshire since the paper and pulp mills first started production. But wind power may soon supplement the 50 MW supply if Massachusetts-based UPC Wind Partners is allowed to install turbines in the northern part of New Hampshire. Gorham Selectman Mike Waddell said the company has given three presentations in the area, and proposed test towers in Gorham and Cambridge to see if a wind farm would be successful there. They have talked with the Watershed Commission, the Coos County Planning Board and the Gorham Selectmen. There are at least eight dams in the county now to supply power to the area, and much of the supply is piped around the county from a line that runs parallel to Route 110, Waddell said.
