Ol’ Whistler is the New Turbine in Plymouth
Ol’ Whistler is the 1.5 MW turbine at Camelot Industrial Park in Plymouth. The 370-foot turbine owned by Balboni Energy was manufactured by Goldwind, the 2nd largest wind turbine manufacturer in China. The tower was built by Mass Tank.
The project got $240,000 from the MassCEC from the RET Fund (our utility bill taxes) and $585,000 in stimulus funding (ARRA) (our federal taxes). The project is described in a press release by Mass Tank and a story in the magazine Results published by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston about the three banks that financed the project.
