The Berkshire Wind Power Project is a 12-turbine, 19.6–megawatt wind farm atop Brodie Mountain in Hancock, Massachusetts. The project, which started commercial operation on May 28, 2011, is owned and operated by the Berkshire Wind Power Cooperative, a non-profit entity that consists of 16 Massachusetts municipal utilities and their joint action agency, the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company. Berkshire Wind is a unique public power initiative that embodies the energy, environmental, and economic benefits of renewable energy development.
The Berkshire Wind Power Project is the second largest operating wind farm in Massachusetts, capable of producing enough electricity to power 7,800 homes while offsetting the production of nearly 800,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide and the use of 1.45 million barrels of oil. Wind speeds average about 18.3 mph atop Brodie Mountain, one of the best inland wind sites in Massachusetts.
