"Powering up Maine:" part two of a three-part series, on an Aquabank underground
"Powering up Maine:" part two of a three-part series, on an Aquabank underground hydropower station being considered by Toronto developer Riverbank Power Co. for the site of the former Maine Yankee nuclear power plant in Wiscasset. Two other ocean energy projects are being considered for Wiscasset. Transmission Developers Inc. of Toronto wants to build a $1 billion undersea power cord to shuttle excess renewable power to Boston, conceivably transporting power generated by the Aquabank. The town of Wiscasset and the Chewonki Foundation are considering harnessing tidal waters through turbines in the Sheepscot River. The projects could remake Wiscasset as an energy town, using renewable rather than nuclear energy.
