The town of Lempster, N.H., held a dedication ceremony for the state's first modern wind power project.

The 24 MW Lempster Wind Power Project, located in Sullivan County, N.H., comprises 12 Gamesa wind turbines and was developed by Iberdrola Renewables. Public Service of New Hampshire, the state's largest electric utility, is purchasing all of the energy from the project under a long-term contract and is reselling a portion of the power to the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, the local service provider.

"In order for our country to break its addiction to fossil fuels and address the serious threats of climate change, investments in clean energy like the Lempster wind project will be essential," says Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.

The project is sited on about 1,500 acres of land in the town of Lempster, though less than 5% of that is taken up by the project's footprint. Ten of the turbines are on land owned by Lempster resident Kevin Onnela.

The wind farm benefited from the work of local contractors and crews, and the project purchased numerous supplies and services from New Hampshire firms, including concrete, electrical cable, fuel, sand, food, lodging and many other products.
