First Wind Turbine at Ski Resort


Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA begins generating its own power today. Friday August 3, 2007, the blades of a GE 1.5 MW wind turbine caught the Berkshire breeze and began generating electricity to directly satisfy Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort’s electrical demands.

With such a high demand for electricity, businesses are turning toward alternative sources of power. The Jiminy Peak Resort has taken a step toward green energy by becoming to first business in North American to produce all of its own electricity from a wind turbine.
