ReVision Energy will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of a 14,256-panel community solar farm in Hampden.

Wishcamper Hampden, as the site is known, was built on a 25-acre abandoned gravel pit. The site is 10 miles south of Bangor. 

The project is a joint effort: Portland-based Wishcamper Cos. Inc. is the investor and owner of the project, while South Portland-based ReVision Energy served as the developer.

The site became operational in December and will generate an estimated 8,690 megawatt-hours of clean energy yearly.

The power generated there is being used by College of the Atlantic, Deer Island/Stonington School District, Isle au Haut Power Co., Bangor Water District and the town of Blue Hill.

The clean power generated by the Wishcamper Hampden facility is the equivalent of 1,371 gas-powered cars and the energy use of 776 homes. The project was nationally recognized as one of Solar Builder Magazine’s 2023 "Projects of the Year."

The site will be officially unveiled at a ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 29, at 10 a.m. The address is 127 Meadow Road in Hampden.
