Earlier this month I traveled to Hancock with Governor Patrick to cut the ribbon a new ten-turbine wind project that will generate enough clean, renewable electricity to power approximately 6,000 homes. It’s the state’s first utility-scale onshore wind farm, an exciting accomplishment to celebrate. Despite the chilly and windy weather, it was an impressive sight along the ridgeline of Brodie Mountain.
The 15 megawatt project – known as Berkshire Wind – nearly doubles the state’s previous installed wind power capacity. Due to the governor’s leadership in setting aggressive goals for renewable energy, Massachusetts is in the midst of a 30-fold increase in wind power capacity – from 4 megawatts in 2007 to an anticipated 90 megawatts either installed or in design and construction by the end of this year. It’s just one of many milestones we plan to mark this year to celebrate our clean energy revolution.
