The Island Institute is an organization in Maine working to establish unwavering partnerships with Maine’s island and working with water front communities to help conserve island fragility and marine biodiversity for generations to come.

Instead of leading the communities into different projects, the Island Institute shores up monetary, technological, and informational support. Such initiatives as the wind energy projects on the Fox Islands and Monhegan are entirely designed, developed, and owned by the community. As George Baker, CEO of Fox Island Wind, LLC, reflected, “There really is nothing cutting edge about this project, except for the way it was designed for and by the community as a distributive and locally owned generation that will serve as a model for other communities.”
