Deep roots in the community because of John Richardson? Did he live in Roxbury? I thought it was Brunswick or somewhere in that area.
Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company LLC (“GREC” or “Greenbacker”), a leading owner and operator of sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency projects, announced today that RoxWind, a 15.3-MWdc wind farm, entered commercial operation on November 30. When it was acquired in 2020, the to-be-constructed project in Roxbury was Greenbacker’s first asset in Maine, a state with a history of strong support for renewables. Since then, the company has acquired four other assets and steadily built out its pipeline of renewable energy projects there, with RoxWind being its first in the state to reach the commercial operation milestone.
Each of RoxWind’s turbines can produce over 3.8 MW of wind power and has a rotor diameter of 137 meters—roughly the length of 10 full-sized school buses placed end to end.
RoxWind also has deep roots in the community. John G. Richardson, Jr., the 97th Speaker of Maine’s House of Representatives, was an invaluable proponent of the project who passed away before the construction was completed. His memory was honored in June 2021 during a community blade signing and commemoration event organized by Greenbacker and its development partners.
