PORTSMOUTH — Wind is a vast, natural, and renewable energy. Despite being used as a power source for centuries, it wasn't until 1888 that Charles Brush first harnessed its potential to create electricity.

Eolian Renewable Energy, in Portsmouth, carries on Brush's work on a much larger scale. Brush's first wind turbine powered one home. Eolian's current project, in Antrim, will power about 12,500 average New Hampshire homes when completed.

The Antrim Wind Project is a venture that Jack Kenworthy, CEO of Eolian, is incredibly proud of. Not just because of the clean, renewable energy that it will create for the state of New Hampshire, but also for the many other innovative elements built into the project including vast amounts of forestland that the project will permanently conserve.

“It's a project we believe is really the best sited wind project in the state of New Hampshire,” Kenworthy said. “It has enjoyed long standing support from the town of Antrim, which is difficult to achieve, and we are very proud of our ability to have garnered and maintained that support over so many years. And we continue to have a very strong and positive relationship with both the leadership and the residents of the town.”
