Wind Turbine Presentation Scheduled in Blue Hill

BLUE HILL — Peninsula Power, a group of Blue Hill area residents formed to investigate alternative energy resources, will present a look at specific wind turbine equipment at its April 8 meeting.


The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Blue Hill Town Hall.

Tim Holmes, president of SunWind based in Brewster, Mass., will speak about the features of the Endurance wind turbine.

With more than 20 years of experience in commercial and residential construction, SunWind provides design and installation of alternative energy systems, including solar power, wind power and solar thermal systems.

Paul Trowbidge, a founding member of Peninsula Power, said he hopes for a large turnout for Holmes’ “special presentation.”

On its Web site, SunWind describes the Endurance turbine as capable of producing “more power than others of comparable size and built to work in moderate to high winds.”

The company reports that the compact, 50-kilowatt turbine is capable of producing in excess of 180,000 kilowatt hours a year.
