    Farm Fact #1

    Energy Output

    Marble River Wind Farm has an installed capacity of 215.25 megawatts (MW) — enough to power approximately 91,000 average New York homes with clean energy each year. The renewable energy credits generated by Marble River are sold under contract to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and the clean, renewable energy generated will be sold on the New York energy market.

    Benefits to the Community

    Marble River Wind Farm created approximately 300 jobs during the peak of construction and 13 permanent, full-time jobs in operations. The project has also yielded significant economic benefit to the community in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment.

    The Marble River Wind Farm will help provide energy security to the United States by diversifying the electricity generation portfolio, protecting against volatile natural gas spikes and utilizing a renewable, domestic source of energy.

    Farm Fact #3

    Benefits to the Environment

    Marble River Wind Farm will help prevent the annual emission of carbon dioxide, a contributor to climate change; nitrogen oxide, which causes smog; and sulfur dioxide, which causes acid rain. The environmental benefit are equivalent to taking approximately 79,000 passenger cars off of the road.

    Technology

    One of a growing number of operating wind farms in the Empire State, Marble River is comprised of 70 Vestas V112 turbines, each with a capacity 3.075 MW. The turbines in place are some of the most advanced and efficient in use today. The Marble River Wind Farm is also the first V112 park in North America to date.
