“Developing wind power projects in New England is challenging, and finding buyers for the power is a critical milestone in that challenging process. For three of our commercial projects, we have worked with Energy New England to facilitate power sales with municipal utilities; and frankly we couldn’t have done it without them. They are tough negotiators, but also fair, creative and straightforward, and I have the utmost respect for their professionalism. I hope we can continue to work together on future projects. – Jay Cashman, Chairman – Patriot Renewables, LLC”
