A 14-foot diameter, 60-ton base of a Vestas V90-1.8 megawatt wind turbine is hauled up the access road to the Pisgah Mountain wind farm site in Clifton Friday morning. This is the first of 45 pieces that will be trucked from the port in Searsport to the site in Clifton over three weeks. Developer Paul Fuller said that the five turbines need to be in place before Oct. 15 to meet a deadline required as part of the Public Utility Commission's 20-year Community-based Renewable Energy contract between Pisgah and Emera Maine. Each turbine has a hub height of 305 feet and each blade is 140 feet long. A 351-foot crane was brought in to install them on the mountain. This $25 million wind farm project was unanimously approved by the Clifton Planning Board back in October 2011.
