Forty five attendees spent the last day of Community Wind Energy 2008 on a day trip to the Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort to see the 1.5 MW community wind project. We enjoyed presentations about the turbine (named Zephyr) from Tyler Fairbank of EOS Ventures and Brian Fairbank of Jiminy Peak. The highlight of the day was a trip up a ski lift to hike to the base of the turbine and then back down the mountain. A wonderful lunch was provided as well. Thanks again to EOS Ventures for sponsoring the trip and Jiminy Peak for being such great hosts!
Here are some photos from the day:
