COLCHESTER, Vt. – Free tickets are now available for popular tours of Kingdom Community Wind in Lowell, Vt. Each summer, experts from Green Mountain Power (GMP) have hosted dozens of visitors looking to learn more about wind energy that’s produced in Vermont.
This summer’s tours will be at 10:00 a.m. on June 28 and July 19. The 21 turbines in Lowell have been producing clean energy since 2012, and visitors get to see two of them up close and learn about how they work. Past participants have said in surveys that the visit provides an informal setting that’s good for asking questions, and:
- “Learned a lot about the turbines. Also, a great view!”
- “The turbines are impressive and very quiet. I find them very calming to watch.”
Tours typically take about 90 minutes. Space is limited, so you have to pre-register.
