"Our investment in this solar infrastructure, combined with our other solar investments, will provide clean, renewable energy and propel us toward our goal to derive 50% of our electricity usage from renewable sources by the end of 2030."

Staying with awards, The Wharf at Lyman-Morse wins multiple times during inaugural season. Lyman-Morse, the venerable Maine-based boatbuilder who has been crafting world-renowned custom and semi-custom sail and power yachts for 45 years, enjoyed a season full of awards and accolades for both their new boats and their new Camden facilities. Lyman-Morse purchased the property in 2015, and since then all the buildings have gone through extensive (and in some cases complete) renovations following a fire in 2020. Now, after years of work breathing life back into the waterfront, the 2023 season saw new tenants, new visitors, and a boatload of new awards.
