NEW YORK, NY. September 13, 2017 – On Wednesday, September 13th Novatus Energy officials hosted a community open house at the Oakfield Wind Project in Oakfield, Maine. Community members enjoyed a pristine early fall day with a barbeque and beverages under the Project’s #45 turbine, followed by self-guided tours of the project. Attendees were able to hear comments from Novatus Energy officials, and ask questions about the project.
“Our company’s mission and values include long lasting commitment to our communities and respect for our stakeholders,” said Steve Doyon, CEO of Novatus. “We hope events like this demonstrate that we are part of the greater Oakfield community for the long haul, and look forward to nurturing our relationship with the region.”

The Oakfield Wind Project has an installed capacity of 148 MW, utilizing 48 Vestas V-112 3.0 MW turbines on 94 meter (308 ft) towers. Reed & Reed, Inc., a Woolwich, Maine based contractor constructed the project, which began commercial operation in October of 2015.
