Snowmobile Ride Around Wind Power Project

This story was just too fun to not feature here on CleanTechnica — First Wind is hosting a Sheffield Wind Snowmobile Ride-In this Saturday, March 3.

Basically, snowmobilers will meet at First Wind’s wind power project at Sheffield Mountain and will get to tour the wind turbines up-close while also enjoying the beautiful natural scenery of the area and a barbecue lunch.

Here’s a (sort of sales-y) video on the Sheffield Wind project via First Wind, which basically nails some of the biggest benefits of wind energy and wind farm development everywhere:

First Wind also noted in its announcement about this snowmobile ride that it will make a $1,000 donation to VAST – the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers.

More details are available at First Wind if you are in that area and interested in participating in the snowmobile ride.
