Working as the owner's engineer and assisting in procurement of turbines, Berkshire County based EOS Ventures is an integral part of wind project.
Vinalhaven, ME: After months of negotiations, public outreach, permit applications and design work, Fox Islands Wind, LLC with the support of EOS Ventures, is now overseeing the construction of efforts to bring wind energy to Vinalhaven and North Haven Islands. When work on site is completed later this year, three 1.5 megawatt General Electric wind turbines will be feeding electricity directly to the power distribution system on the two islands. EOS Ventures, based in Hancock, MA is working as the owner’s engineer on the project and procured the turbines. It is the 2nd largest off shore wind project on the east coast.

Fox Islands Wind, LLC CEO George Baker, a Harvard Business School professor, has been the driving force behind the project and stated, “Fox Islands Wind could not have implemented this project without EOS. They have been integral to this process and are making affordable electricity a reality for the island communities.”
