Georgia Mt. Community Wind produces 1 million kWh in single week

The Georgia Mountain Community Wind farm (GMCW) in Milton, Vt., on which construction was completed December 31, 2012, produced more than 1 million kWh in a single week, according to a news release from the project developer.   During the first week in April, the community wind farm operated at a 63.7 percent capacity factor, producing enough energy to meet 17 percent of the City of Burlington's entire electricity needs.  GMCW will produce an estimated 27 million kWh annually.  The project is owned by two local business leaders and life-long Vermonters: renewable energy manufacturer and developer David Blittersdorf and Georgia Mountain Maples operator Jim Harrison/the Harrison Family.
