Berkshire East became the second ski resort in the world to be powered by wind when SED completed the installation of a 900kW. The wind turbine, a PowerWind 56, was the first PowerWind machine to be installed in the United States. The introduction of the Hamburg, Germany-based wind turbine manufacturing company to the United States has set up a pipeline for a dozen future sites where SED and PowerWind can work together in building the distributed wind community in the Northeastern United States.
