Windmill Tour Held in Conjunction with PPL Renewable Energy

More than 100 people turned out for a tour of the new wind mills at Turkey Point in Lancaster County on Sept. 17. PPL Renewable Energy completed the wind turbine project, located on land owned by the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority, earlier this year. As the turbines’ owners and operators, PPL has been providing clean energy to the Turkey Hill Dairy since they began operating. The wind turbines provide the diary with about 25% of its energy needs, which is enough to produce 6 million gallons of ice cream every year. Turkey Hill also benefits from another green energy project at the landfill — a methane gas-to-electricity plant that is also owned and operated by PPL Renewable Energy. Heat from the engines is used by the dairy for daily cleaning of their equipment. You can learn more about PPL Renewable Energy at www.pplrenewablenergy.com.
