Now is the time to sign up for Green Mountain Power’s free public tours of the 21-turbine Kingdom Community Wind project in Lowell, Vermont, offered during June, July and August. This is an opportunity for Vermonters and out-of-state visitors alike to experience a working wind farm, and learn how GMP is harnessing the power of wind.
Tours of the GMP wind project in Lowell have become a popular Vermont activity during the summer. More than 1,200 people have visited the site every summer since tours began in 2013, coming from all over the state, as well from across the country and overseas. Visitors to the plant frequently enjoy local restaurants and shops, making for an enjoyable outing and helping the local economy.
Many of the visitors responded to a survey with comments like: “Learned a lot about the wind turbines. Also a great view!,” “It’s for the better of all. They are conscientious about the terrain, landscape, habitat, wildlife…,” “They are awesome sculptural objects,” “I liked everything!! The site is wonderful, very well done. The information was great and the informal setting was good for asking whatever question we had. The turbines are impressive and very quiet. I find them very calming to watch.”
Each tour lasts approximately 90 minutes, and includes a visit to two of the turbines. The tours are free, but advance registration is required.
Sign up for a tour this summer!
