The Burke Mountain ski resort in northern Vermont has installed a wind turbine it hopes will generate 15 to 20 percent of the mountain’s energy needs.

Burke Mountain vice president Tim McGuire told The Caledonian Record that the 121-foot turbine should be online by the end of August. It’s expected to produce a little less than 300,000 kilowatt hours.

McGuire said the resort received a $500,000 low-interest loan from the state to help make a $973,000 project possible.
