Patriot is currently evaluating the feasibility of a wind project on Colonel Holman Ridge in Dixfield, Maine. The proposed project would consist of approximately 6-12 turbines.
A 196-foot meteorological tower, used to collect site-specific wind data, was installed on Colonel Holman Ridge in November 2009. The project is currently in the environmental study stage.
In November 2010, after a year-long moratorium, the Town of Dixfield chose not to enact a local wind ordinance. In addition, the town voted against a zoning bylaw that would have restricted development on Colonel Holman Ridge.
