Sewall has been a key player in driving the adoption of renewable energy technologies and helped position Maine as New England’s leader in wind power. Our engineers supported the development of the first commercial wind project in Maine and the largest commercial wind farm in New England. Sewall continues to provide siting assistance, civil design, and permitting services for several current wind farm development projects in Maine, New England, and the mid-Atlantic states.
