Minneapolis-based community wind developer National Wind has brought Peter Mastic on board as President and Chief Development Officer. He will be responsible for project development and finance and will report to company CEO, Leon Steinberg. Mastic will be at the helm of developing the company’s project portfolio, that currently consists of 15 community wind farms delivering over 4,000 megawatts (MW) per year. Prior to joining National Wind, Mastic was the founder and CEO of Third Planet Windpower, LLC.
“We are pleased to have a wind industry executive of such prominence join our team,” Steinberg commented. “Peter is a senior energy executive turned wind developer. He is well versed in renewable energy markets and has been successful in developing large-scale wind projects across the country.”
Mastic is no stranger to wind development. In the past he has managed the development, financing, or commissioning of more than 20 wind projects, that when completed will produce more than five gigawatts (GW) of wind energy across the States. To date, 500 MW are currently operational.
“I am pleased to be joining National Wind at an exciting time in its expansion,” Mastic said. “National Wind is unique in the industry as a utility-scale community-based wind developer, and without question it has major growth potential moving forward.”
