Media Report on UMaine’s Release of Offshore Wind Project Proposal Details

The Associated Press, Renewable Energy News, Bangor Daily News and Mainebiz reported the University of Maine and its partner companies have released additional details about their offshore wind project proposal. Maine Aqua Ventus released information about plans to supply power directly to Monhegan Island. Jeffrey Thaler, assistant university counsel and a visiting professor of energy policy, law and ethics at UMaine, told the AP the project aims to provide power to the island where residents currently have high energy costs due to their reliance on generators. Jake Ward, UMaine’s vice president for innovation and economic development, said the proposal highlights the university and its partner companies’ strong approach that they believe gives them a good shot at winning a $46 million federal energy grant. The Boston Herald, Sun Journal, WLBZ (Channel 2), Tri-City Herald, Miami Herald, Recharge News, Portland Press Herald and Bloomberg Businessweek were among organizations to carry the AP report. The BDN also published an editorial on the project and Before it’s News mentioned the project in the article “Offshore wind experiences its best growth in 2013.”
