LOWELL - The 21st and final wind turbine in Green Mountain Powerâ€™s (GMP) wind project on Lowell Mountain was commissioned November 20, effectively securing $44-million in Federal Production Tax Credits. The tax credits will go to GMP over a ten-year period and every penny is a cost savings to the consumers, GMP spokesperson Dotty Schnure said.
The power produced will cost about 9 to 10 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) with the tax credits. But GMP will also likely sell renewable energy credits (RECS) for additional income, which will allow them to drop the price further.
