Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Mount Desert Island Wind Turbine 

College of the Atlantic students got to show off their hard work today.They held a ribbon cutting ceremony for Mount Desert Island’s first free-standing wind turbine.The ceremony allowed the students to showcase what they’ve been working on for the past seven months and let the public see the wind turbine.It also gave the community the opportunity to ask questions about the turbine and wind power.C-O-A President David Hales says they hope this project is only the beginning.”And progress comes in little practical steps and we hope this is one those important, small practical steps that others will follow.”The college of the Atlantic received grant money to buy and install the turbine at beech hill farm.
