RoxWind wind farm : Greenbacker begins operation of Maine project

Greenbacker Renewable Energy revealed that the 15.3MW RoxWind wind farm in Maine has started commercial operation.

Located in Roxbury, the RoxWind project is estimated to generate close to 50,300 MWh of clean energy per year, which is enough to power around 4,500 homes per year.

The wind farm, which comprises four turbines, each of more than 3.8MW, had involved around 80 people for its construction.

It was acquired in 2020 by Greenbacker Renewable Energy as a to-be-constructed project. The RoxWind wind farm marked the first asset for the infrastructure company in Maine.

Developed originally by Palmer Capital, the RoxWind project broke ground in 2020. Currently, it produces renewable energy for four investment-grade municipal utilities through long-term offtake agreements.

Charles Wheeler — CEO of Greenbacker Renewable Energy said: “RoxWind is a win for all involved, delivering affordable clean power to consumers and driving a future powered by clean energy.

“This milestone is a testament to the Town of Roxbury’s support, and a credit to the expertise of the development teams at Palmer Capital, Solaya Energy, and Horseshoe Valley Wind, with whom we look forward to partnering again.”
