Green Mountain Power Wind Power Project Third-Year Operating Experience: 1999-2000  

Author:  | Technology, Vermont

EPRI reported that the ridgeline facility in Searsburg, Vermont, produced no electricity at all – not even a trickle – almost 40% of the time:

“On average, the Searsburg turbines generate electricity more than 60% of the time. … Individual turbines generated electricity 51% to 75% of the time during the third year, and from 45% to 77% of the time during the second year. The turbine generation time is related to both wind speed and availability.”

A summary of the data in this document along with further discussion of the Searsburg facility in southern Vermont is available at AWEO.org.
