The Windmill


In August 2009 West Quoddy Station erected a new 45' Skystream 3.7 Windmill with a maxmimum output of 2.3 KW per Hour. Each of the 3 carbon fiber blades are 3.7' long with an overall 6' radius. The Windmill was sold and erected by Norbert Lemieux of Cutler, Maine. Digging, forming and pouring the foundation took a day and a half. After 2+ weeks of curing, the wind generator was raised in half a day. The windmill generated approximately 6KW per day in September. October and the winter promises much higher generation rates as the seasonal winds increase. The windmill delivers AC directly to the (Bangor Hydro) grid and gives 100% credit to West Quoddy Station.
