Six members of the Nashoba Valley ARC traveled to the Green Mountain Power’s Searsburg VT, Wind Power Facility recently. Their “tour guide” was a retired science teacher, W1ZPB.
NVARC club member Wolfgang Seidlich, KA1VOU described the facilities. “The site features 11 towers each assembled from 2- 64-foot steel, 18-foot diameter cylindrical sections. They are topped by a rotating nacelle that holds the hub attached to 3 black fiberglass blades each weighing 4200 pounds.”
