Penobscot Region Twin Hydroelectric Generating Facilities
Penobscot Region Twin Hydroelectric Generating FacilitiesPenobscot County, Maine
In just over 12 months, beginning October 2012, Bancroft Contracting Corporation constructed twin hydroelectric generating facilities on the Stillwater River in Penobscot County, Maine. The facilities were part of a groundbreaking regional negotiation balancing environmental concerns with the need for renewable energy generation. Bancroft crews worked through a brutal Maine winter to meet a critical schedule truncated from 18 months to 12 due to federal permitting delays.
