As of early 2021, Pennsylvania was home to 26 utility scale wind farms, all located in the southwest-central or northeastern areas of the state. The smallest wind farm, consisting of two turbines, is an exception, as it is located in southeast PA at Turkey Point in Lancaster County. The Mehoopany Wind Farm in Wyoming County is Pennsylvania's largest wind farm (both in terms of wind turbines: 88 and capacity: 140.8 MW). Constructed in 2019, the Big Level Wind Farm in Potter County is the state's newest wind farm. Somerset County was home to the state's first commercial wind farm, the Green Mountain Wind Energy Center, which was completed in 2000 (it was deactivated in 2015). Somerset County is currently home to the most active wind farms (8) and the most wind turbines (198). Learn more about the state's wind farms in the table below. Note: Wind farms are listed chronologically by when they were constructed. Megawatt is abbreviated MW in the table.
