LOWELL — Tours are well underway at Green Mountain Power’s Kingdom Community Wind site in Lowell. So far this summer GMP has brought nearly 400 people to the top of Lowell Mountain to get an up-close view of the 21 turbine project.

During the free tour, visitors have the opportunity to learn about the project, touch a blade, and experience how the turbines operate and harness the power of wind.

“Green Mountain Power is thrilled to once again offer these free tours to the public,” said GMP Spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure. “Connecting Vermonters directly to how energy is produced is so important. The tours are a wonderful way to engage with people and show them first hand this exciting wind project.”

The tours last 90 minutes and are free to the public.
