Wind power project supplying 16 MW of power to utility

Burlington Electric Department is receiving 16 MW of power from the 40 MW Sheffield wind project in Vermont owned by First Wind.

BED will also contract to receive output from the planned 11 MW Georgia Mountain wind project, expected to be operational by 2013, and an unnamed project expected to come online by 2014. BED already receives one-third of its power from hydroelectric projects, one-third from the 50 MW McNeil biomass power plant and one-third from the three wind projects.

RMT Inc. provided the engineering, procurement and construction of the civil and electrical infrastructure for the Sheffield project, including the installation of four Clipper C96 and 12 Clipper C93 turbines.

Sheffield is the first wind project in Vermont to come on line since Green Mountain Power’s 6 MW Searsburg project in 1997.
