Georgia Mountain Community Wind is the first commercial-scale wind project in Chittenden & Franklin Counties. This four-turbine, 10 megawatt wind turbine project is locally owned by Vermont business owners and employers with a passion for home grown renewable energy. The project provides long-term, stably priced power along with economic benefits to Vermonters by harnessing the power of the winds flowing across the Champlain Valley.
GMCW focuses on local jobs from development and permitting through construction, and is financed by Merchants Bank of Burlington, VT.
All of the power output of GMCW, as well as the Renewable Energy Credits, goes to the nearby Burlington Electric Department through a long-term stably priced power purchase agreement and is meeting the needs of more than 4,200 average Vermont households.
Georgia Mountain Community Wind is a proud member of Renewable Energy Vermont.
