Milton/Georgia, Vermont … Georgia Mountain Community Wind (GMCW) will host this year’s Open House and Wind Turbine Tours for community members on Sunday, June 8 from 1pm to 4 pm.
Last year’s Open House drew over 750 community members to view the wind turbines up close, dedicate the project and celebrate local renewable energy.
The 10 MW community wind farm consisting of four wind turbines became operational December 31, 2012 and provides approximately 8 percent of Burlington Electric Department’s (BED) energy demand through a long-term stably priced contract.
For the 2014 year to date, GMCW is running at a 45% capacity factor, making it one of the highest producing wind projects in the region.
GMCW is owned by two local business leaders and life-long Vermonters, renewable energy business leader and developer David Blittersdorf and Georgia Mountain Maples and Harrison Concrete owner, Jim Harrison/the Harrison Family.
