Media Report on UMaine’s Commitment to Wind Project After Statoil Drops Out

The Associated Press, Bangor Daily News, Maine Public Broadcasting Network, Renewable Energy News, WVII (Channel 7), Mainebiz and Portland Press Herald were among the news organizations to report on Norwegian company Statoil’s decision to pull the plug on its $120 million offshore wind pilot project in Maine. The University of Maine’s proposal is now the only project being considered for a state contract. Maine Aqua Ventus, the umbrella company that includes UMaine and its partner companies, said in a statement that it will continue pursuing its contract and remains committed to developing Maine’s offshore wind potential. The Huffington Post, Boston Herald, WLBZ (Channel 2), WABI (Channel 5) and Sun Journal carried the AP report.
