The U.S. Forest Service says preconstruction testing at the site of the proposed Deerfield wind farm in the southern Vermont towns of Readsboro and Searsburg is underway.

The work testing the prospective wind turbine locations, along with areas where the access road connecting the turbines may go, will take place over the next two to three weeks.

The work that involves limited tree clearing by hand and boring to collect core samples has been approved by the U.S. Forest Service, the Vermont Public Service Board, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Iberdrola (“ee-bur-DROL-ah”) Renewables is planning to build 15 wind turbines – eight in Searsburg and seven in neighboring Readsboro.

Construction of the Deerfield wind project could begin next year.
