Kidder Hill Community Wind (KHCW) is planned as a 5-megawatt electric generation project under development with the potential to provide enough power to meet the average local annual electric needs of approximately 2,000 households. The two wind turbines at Kidder Hill Community Wind will play a role in helping Vermont achieve its renewable energy goals.
Numerous environmental, engineering and economical studies have been conducted or are nearly completion, including the acquisition and analysis of on-site natural resource data, wetlands resource investigation, visual and sound analyses, electrical interconnection studies and economic analyses.
An advanced permit application filing notice was mailed in late December to adjoining neighbors of the project location, state agencies and to communities within ten miles. On June 27, 2017 a petition was submitted to the Vermont Public Service Board for the installation and operation of the two wind turbines.
