Georgia Mountain Community Wind
Milton and Georgia, VT
Georgia Mountain Community Wind (“GMCW”) is a 10 megawatt wind power facility being developed in Chittenden and Franklin County in the towns of Milton and Georgia, Vermont. The owners firmly believe in the importance of bringing clean energy and economic benefits to their local communities and Vermont. The facility will be situated on a 700+/- acre parcel of land along the Chittenden and Franklin County line that includes the 1440 ft southeastern summit of Georgia Mountain. Working with an adjoining land owner, the ¾-mile ridgeline is available to support 4 commercial scale wind turbines that will provide electricity produced from sustainable sources, contribute to the growth of alternative energy in Vermont, stabilize electricity prices and contribute to in-state investment opportunities for renewable projects. The electricity will be sold to Burlington Electric Company. The Project will involve constructing approximately 2.2 miles of new or improved access roads and approximately 2.5 miles of new 34.kV electric transmission line to connect with the existing transmission circuit owned by Central Vermont Public Service Company.
