Project Facts:

  • Generation from the turbines provides 30% of Wynford Local Schools' electricity needs.
  • The turbines will supply enough power yearly to meet the needs of 31 homes
  • Similar environmental impact to:
    • avoiding the emission of 554,148 pounds of carbon dioxide per year
    • carbon sequestered by 53.6 acres of pine fir forest
  • The wind turbines are manufactured in Vermont and each tower contains more than 28,000 pounds of US steel.
  • All turbines are built to withstand winds of more than 134 mph (more than three times the local building codes).
  • Wind energy provides more jobs per dollar invested than any other energy technology.
