Where is the UMaine Deepwater Offshore Wind Test Site?

The UMaine Deepwater Offshore Wind Test Site is located nearly 3 miles south west of Monhegan Island, ME, more than 12 miles from the coast of Maine.

Following an extensive public process, the UMaine Deepwater Offshore Wind Test Site at Monhegan Island was designated to the University of Maine in 2009 by legislation through LD 1465The site was selected in part due to its distance from the mainland, strong and consistent winds, a limited number of fishermen, and its proximity to an island with high energy costs.
