LOWELL, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's largest electric utility says the components of what will become 21 industrial wind turbines are starting to arrive on Lowell Mountain.
Green Mountain Power says trucks will be transporting the turbine parts to Lowell from a railroad yard in Island Pond from now until early September.
The project consists of 21 turbines that are designed to generate electricity for more than 24,000 Vermont homes.
The Lowell Mountain project was the focus of intense opposition from a number of people in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, but it was approved overwhelmingly by voters in the town of Lowell.
The project is supposed to be generating electricity by the end of the year.
