Green Mountain Power Joins Wind Energy Works!

On Tuesday, Sept. 26, Green Mountain Power Co. (GMP) of South Burlington, Vt., became the first investor-owned electric utility to join the Wind Energy Works! partnership.

GMP thus continues its record as a wind power pioneer, having been the first utility in New England to install and operate a wind farm. The GMP wind project at Searsburg, Vt., has been in place and running since 1997 and is still the largest operational wind farm in New England (although it will soon be displaced by the larger Mars Hill wind plant currently under construction in Maine).

The Wind Energy Works! coalition is a national alliance supporting wind energy development across the country as the first major step toward a clean and safe energy future. A list of current members is located here.
