Renewable Energy


Brookfield Renewable is an experienced developer, owner and operator of renewable power facilities, including six hydropower facilities in the Katahdin region.

Brookfield Renewable creates value by developing innovative, natural power solutions that accelerate the world towards a carbon-free future, providing clean and reliable power to 519,00+ households and businesses in Maine.

Ocean Renewable Power Company (ORPC) is planning to assemble, test, and showcase its modular RivGen hydro-electric system in Millinocket Stream at the One North site. ORPC will work with Our Katahdin to evaluate the One North site as a future production and showroom facility.

ORPC’s RivGen® Power System generates emission-free electricity from river currents and connects directly into existing remote community grids using smart grid technology. It consists of three major subsystems: shore-side power electronics, mooring system, and turbine generator (TGU) device.


In 2022, Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company LLC intends to break ground on a 5 MW solar farm on the One North site. This project is tentatively scheduled to be commissioned in 2023. The One North site has over 1,000 acres in the greenfield alone, allowing for significant long-term opportunities for additional solar development as needs at the site arise.
