Jiminy Peak

“This fall, the resort broke ground on a $3.9 million, 253-foot-tall wind turbine that will generate a third of the resort’s energy consumption. By avoiding fossil fuels, Jiminy Peak hopes to save more than a half-million dollars annually and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to both a healthier bottom line and environment.” NY Times
