Tours are well under way at Green Mountain Power’s Kingdom Community Wind site in Lowell. So far this summer GMP has brought nearly 400 people to the top of Lowell Mountain to get an up-close view of the 21 turbine project. During the free tour, visitors have the opportunity to learn about the project, touch a blade, and experience how the turbines operate and harness the power of wind.
