PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — A new wind turbine is taking shape at the University of Maine at Presque Isle campus.

The tower has been assembled and school officials say the blades are to be attached to the turbine hub Saturday morning.

The $2 million project makes UMPI the first university in Maine and one of only a few in New England with a mid-size wind turbine. The 600-kilowatt turbine is expected to be producing clean energy by late spring.
