Mehoopany Wind is located on a 9,000-acre site in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania. The 141-megawatt (MW) wind farm was completed in late 2012, creating a new source of electricity and providing economic benefits to surrounding communities.
Mehoopany Wind is one of the largest wind facility ever built in the state of Pennsylvania, utilizing 88 wind turbines to generate enough clean electricity to power more than 40,000 homes. The project created 250 construction jobs at peak and 10 full-time positions.
The entire power output from the wind farm has been sold under long-term contracts to Old Dominion Electric Cooperative and Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative Inc.
The combined contribution of the Mehoopany Wind Farm Project will generate the total amount of 70500 Credits, throughout the lifetime of the projects.
The Credits generated by Mehoopany Wind Farm will be assigned to citizens willing to contribute to climate change mitigation to offset their Personal Environmental Footprint, and be part of a global movement to fight now climate change.
Credits account the compensation effect of the temperature rise generated by the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and/or the reduction in heat absorption by changes in physical properties of the use of land in specific projects.
