Pennsylvania Wind Farms


  • As of 2017, Pennsylvania is home to 25 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, with 88 wind turbines. Constructed in 2016, the Ringer Hill Wind Farm in Somerset County is the state's newest wind farm. Somerset County was also 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).
