VPIRG Director Speaks at Wind Ribbon-Cutting

The grand opening of Vermont’s newest wind farm, Georgia Mountain Community Wind, was celebrated by VPIRG director, Paul Burns, and a number of volunteer, interns, and staff.  The project consists of four 2.5 MW turbines in Milton and Georgia and all power has been purchased by Burlington Electric Department.  When operating at peak capacity, the project will produce enough electricity to supply 8% of BED’s energy needs.
