Wind, Deer Island - At the Deer Island Treatment Plant in Winthrop, two 190-foot, 600 kW wind turbines went on-line in November 2009. The wind turbines generate over 2 million kilowatt hours per year and provide an annual savings in electrical costs of $210,000. The $4 million project was funded in part by a $400,000 grant from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative. Plans are underway for three more wind turbines at Deer Island.
