The Green Mountain Wind Farm is located near Garrett, in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. This 10.4 Megawatt project was completed in 2000 and a portion of the project is sited on a reclaimed strip mine. The project consists of 8 Nordex N60 wind turbines and is connected to the electrical transmission lines of Somerset Rural Electric Cooperative. Electricity produced by the project is purchased by Green Mountain Energy Company.

 


These wind turbines, producing electricity for customers of Green Mountain Energy, are built at the site of a former strip mine.

Wind turbines form a backdrop for the Decker farm. The Deckers own the land on which the Green Mountain Wind Farm is built.
