MONTPELIER – REV’ month-long celebration of Vermont Wind Energy will be capped off this Saturday, March 24th with Vermont Wind Energy Open House Day. Vermonters are invited to learn about wind turbine installations across the state at a variety of participating wind turbine sites. To find a nearby site, go to REV’s newly launched wind energy initiative and website, Wind Works Vermont.
This March has already proven to be a busy month with informative events in Vermont highlighting the benefits of wind energy:
- First Wind’s Sheffield Snowmobile Ride-In
- VEEP’s Wind Works Education Day at Braintree Elementary School
- Congressman Peter Welch’s call for extending renewable energy tax incentives and Section 1603 grant funding programs at NRG Systems
- Vermont Energy Independence Day
To complement these exciting events, REV’s Vermont Wind Energy Open House Day will take place on Saturday, March 24th from 10am to 2pm. Local farms, businesses and colleges have graciously agreed to open their doors and showcase their wind energy installations to show what wind power is truly all about – up close and in person.

Wind Works Vermont provides factual information and first-hand experience demonstrating that wind power is a clean, local, and responsible energy choice that benefits both Vermont and Vermonters. To get the information to Vermonters, REV has placed ads on VTdigger.org and launched a new ad campaign on local stations such as WCAX, WPTZ and Fox44.
“Wind technology is being used by utility companies, farmers, business owners, and school districts all over Vermont to produce clean electric power,” said REV Board Chair Martha Staskus. “The statewide open house and Wind Works Vermont initiative are all about seeing that in action.”
