Apr 12: Sandywoods Farm's Wind Turbine is Up!

Currents Spring 2012 Newsletter

We’re excited to announce that the Sandywoods wind turbine in Tiverton is up and producing electricity! Mass Energy members support the 275 kW turbine by purchasing its green power. The housing at Sandywoods Homes, Inc. was developed by Church Community Housing Corp. as an affordable community for artists. Localized green power and, of course, energy efficiency have been an important part of making the community affordable. The project gained national attention as a model of what can be done to house people while creating community and economic opportunities, and is truly an example of our members’ investment into a greater social good. This summer, PP&L hopes to host a wind festival at Sandywoods, so be on the lookout for an invite!
