The Henry Ford

In the 1980s Enertech grew to be a leading producer of wind turbines--in an industry fast becoming dominated by European companies. This particular unit was one of 8 installed in Princeton, Massachusetts. The Princeton wind farm, which began operation in September 1984, grew from the community's eagerness to explore alternatives to buying power generated by the Seabrook, New Hampshire Nuclear facility.
