Facts about the Riverhurst Wind Facility
- Capstone Infrastructure Corporation owns and manages the facility, selling us the power it produces.
- The facility:
- includes 3 wind turbines
- can generate enough power for about 5,000 homes
- Wind is one of the cleanest power sources because it doesn’t release greenhouse gases (GHG) or pollutants.
- To lower environmental impacts from the construction of wind farms — like birds and bats flying close by — we ensure the facility is built in an area with fewer migration paths and less vegetation.
