High atop the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts sits one of the most energy-efficient vacation spots in North America: Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, with the only privately owned, megawatt-class wind turbine in the United States.
Thanks to the resort's Zephyr wind turbine, wind power now provides 32% of Jiminy Peak's electricity, including powering the lifts and lighting—even making snow. Other results include decreased emissions, reduced environmental impact, and water conservation.
This New England getaway sets a bold new standard for energy conservation. Sustainability has never been so much fun.
