Progress on Virginia's First Wind Farm

Plans call for 19 turbines that will produce enough electricity to power 12,000 homes.

Site preparation began in August, but work was delayed while 12 feet of snow accumulated over the winter. The work will pick up as soon as the remaining snow melts, [Highland New Wind Development's Tal] McBride said.

The 38-megawatt project, including a substation to connect with a nearby power line, should be operating by the fall, he said.
Virginia's wind resources have gone untapped for too long. Great to see this project nearing completion!
