A new economic report predicts that the wind energy industry could create as many as 4,200 jobs in the state of Maine alone in 2015.

In addition, the report demonstrates that the industry has already invested nearly $550 million into the Maine economy since 2006 and will invest another $750 million in the next few years.

The analysis of wind energy in Maine released today shows that the industry has made a significant positive impact on the stateís economy, not only in terms of investment, but also in terms of creating jobs.  The study states that the industry has been employing more than 1,500 people per year and helping to open new markets for Maine companies.

Conducted by Charles Colgan, Ph.D., and the Maine Center for Business & Economic Research at the University of Maine in conjunction with Wind for Maine and the Maine Renewable Energy Association (MREA), the reportís major findings include:

◾New investment of nearly $1.28 billion between 2006-2018;

◾$1.14 billion in employee earnings over the same period;

◾Creation of 1,560 jobs per year, peaking in 2015 at 4,200; and

◾Development of new markets for 23 Maine-based companies that led to nearly $89.6 million in sales in 2011-2013 and 390 jobs in Maine

Wind for Maine and MREA announced the results of the report at a press conference today and in a press release.
